On 80 foot trailer, of course. A slight additional shipping charge may apply.
I'd bet you'd need a police escort to transfer an 80' beam. That can't be very cheap. And a beam spanning 60' needs to be deep... like 3' or more. I've never heard of anyone buying a wood beam that deep, and that long. Obviously there are exceptions... but a simple house is not one of those exceptions.

Years ago I helped load a truck with treated glulam beams that were 80 ft long. the rear trucks were only attached to the beams and there was a driver in a cab right at the back. Like the old cartoons about fire trucks with a driver in the back of a ladder truck.
