Before you start

You need to complete an online registration form for each person in your business who will use the system.

Using ESDAL you can:

  • plan your route
  • notify the police, highways and bridge authorities of your abnormal indivisible load (AIL) movements around the road network
  • get advance notice of any possible route problems
  • save vehicle details and routes for future use

The ESDAL system is password protected - you can only see your own company’s information.

Only your route information will be passed to the relevant authorities.
