For container transportation of goods by sea, oversize cargo is considered to be the cargo which dimensions exceed those of a container in length, width or height. For transportation by rail, oversize cargo is considered as such if its dimensions exceed 13.3 m in length (corresponding to the length of a flat car), 3.25 m in width and 5.3 m in height. For transportation by road, oversize cargo is considered as such if its dimensions (together with a vehicle) are more than 20 m in length, 2.55 m in width, 4 m in height.
There are two types of special containers that could be used for carriage of some cargo of non-standard dimensions; these are OpenTop and FlatRack. An OpenTop container has no roof making it possible to transport cargo of non-standard height or cargo that is loaded from the top. A FlatRack is a platform with only two end walls.
There are many ways to transport oversize cargo by sea, it all depends on the type of vessel and the characteristics of product. In some cases, oversize cargo is stowed on a ship using a crane. FlatRack-type containers can be used to create a space where the cargo is stowed. Self-propelled equipment can be loaded on a specialized ship under its own power. There are also special platforms on which oversize loads are stowed and rolled onto a ship.

If machinery is loaded and secured by a manufacturer, the responsibility shall be borne by a sender.
