Use of total permitted weight for trucks

During a supply shortage, if additional freight capacity is required for the commercial transport of essential goods, some vehicles and their trailers can be loaded to their original total permitted weight.

The road transport companies must apply in advance to FONES’ Logistics Division to confirm the necessity of this measure. They can then apply to the Federal Roads Office for special authorisation.

This measure is founded on the legal provisions issued by the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO) and is closely coordinated with this office.
