SC&RA grows Online Permit Manual with mobile cranes

By Hannah Sundermeyer20 April 2022

The manual has been enhanced to address permitting challenges across states and provinces.

The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association has announced the addition of mobile cranes to its Online Permit Manual which includes all permitting information for the 50 states and Canadian provinces. The SC&RA Online Permit Manual spells out requirements for procedures and contacts; fees, restricted or weekend travel; allowable weights and dimensions; and escort/pilot car requirements. Now the subscription service includes information on mobile cranes.

“SC&RA added mobile cranes to the permit manual because crane and rigging member companies encounter the same challenges in obtaining hauling permits that our specialized transportation carriers face daily,” said Beth O’Quinn, senior vice president, SC&RA. “This includes not only the lack of uniform policies across states, but the added challenge of states permitting mobile cranes that are not, nor can be, evaluated in the same manner as a traditional tractor semi-trailer combination.”

O’Quinn added that now subscribers to the SC&RA Online Permit Manual can easily obtain the proper permit for a mobile crane ahead of time ensuring a safer and more efficient route.

“Like specialized transportation carriers, mobile crane operators can use the Permit Manual to perform the essential pre-trip planning process that goes along with any successful move, including the dynamic changes in individual states and provinces members confront regularly,” O’Quinn concluded.
