As freight vehicle overloading in domestic road transport become a serious problem in China so far. In the past, local government rarely care about this issue. With an aim to make more profit, many trucking companies transport the heavy cargo with less loading capacity truck. For example, they only use 20 ton load capacity truck to carry 25 ton cargo even more heavier.
Starting from 21/Sept/2016, the China Government authorize the local traffic police to strictly monitor and check all kind of cargo truck on the road, and heavy penalty will be on transportation company’s account, if they transport heavy cargo without using appropriate load capacity truck. This will push trucking company to upgrade their truck, in order to obey the traffic rule.
This makes suppliers and trucking companies feel worry, because they get used to transport heavy cargo with improper truck. Some of them might be incapable to transport heavy cargo if they do not have heavy truck. It will not affect those who always comply with rule using heavy truck to carry heavy cargo.
As a result, this must increase the cost of transportation in China as those trucking companies have no other alternatives but have to comply with this Government road traffic safety requirement.
