CARGO TRACKING SOLUTIONS
Abnormal Cargo Escort Services offer a pilot/escort vehicle service that is second to none with over twelve pilot/escort vehicles on call we can supply as many pilot/escort vehicles that are required.
We can also arrange a second man in the pilot/escort vehicle if required saving the haulier time & money. All our drivers have been involved with the haulage industry at one time or another & will assist if necessary with the loading & unloading of abnormal loads.
We recognise the importance of the Escorts role in complying with legal & safety requirements. When notifying the movement of an abnormal load (or abnormal load vehicle); the police may ask for a self-certificate or other evidence to show that the vehicles and personnel to be used comply with the Highways Agency Code of Practice (Self-Escorting of Abnormal Loads and Abnormal Vehicles).
