Although it’s not unusual to see a truck on the highway with excessive cargo, the term “oversized” can signify a number of different things. In other instances, you might see a truck moving down the interstate with a convoy carrying an object the size of a house to warn drivers to keep the roads clear. However, seeing a massive cargo being moved on an ordinary road is much more amazing.
In terms of weight, a water desalination device that weighed more than 4,800 tons was the biggest load ever transported. A Sᴀᴜᴅɪ Aʀᴀʙɪᴀn logistics company had to use a tractor-trailer truck with 172 axles to complete this feat in 2012. The fact that this desalination machine was bigger than half a football field makes it even more bizarre.
A massive 640-ton power station transformer was the heaviest object ever transported in Britain by road. The most intriguing aspect of this situation is that this transformer had to be moved at a speed of roughly 4 miles per hour, which caused a significant traffic backup as it was being transported.
A logistics business moved a 340-ton boulder from Riverside County, California, to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art where it was used in an artwork called Levitating Mass over the course of a full week and a half. This was undoubtedly one of the more difficult transport assignments, requiring a vehicle with 176 wheels to go at a speed of 10 miles per hour.
In 2012, the space shuttle Endeavour was relocated 12 miles from its original spot to the California Science Center when it was retired. Thousands of people gathered to witness the space shuttle move, taking up an amazing six lanes of traffic and attracting a large crowd.
