Over The Road

Matrix Transportation Over-the-Road (OTR) Services

OTR transportation refers to the transportation of cargo and goods over long distances. It usually involves trucks driving on highways, roads and streets, and can include multiple drop off points. OTR requires specialized resources, such as large vehicles that are built to handle the weight of a full load and drivers with the necessary skills and experience. OTR is typically used for transporting large shipments quickly and efficiently across greater distances.


Important Road Rules for OTR Transportation


The road rules for OTR transportation in your state or province will likely vary depending on the local laws and regulations. Generally, it is important to follow the posted speed limit at all times, obey traffic signals and not drive recklessly or carelessly. Other rules to adhere to may include:


  • Avoiding driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. (A no-brainer, but always worth mentioning!)

  • Parking in designated areas only.

  • Knowing when weight restrictions apply and understanding their implications.

  • Following local laws regarding vehicle inspections and any other relevant regulations. Inspections generally include checking the condition of brakes, lights, tires and mirrors as well as ensuring that all freight is properly secured and drivers hold valid licenses.

  • Securing any cargo properly and ensuring that it is adequately covered with a tarp or other appropriate material.
