Seaboard Marine wishes to remind its customers of regulations imposed by the Canadian government on inland weight rules on all cargo moving over the road in Quebec. During the thaw period, heavy vehicles traveling anywhere on the road network must reduce their loads in order to comply with the load limits set by the Vehicle Load and Size Limits Regulation.
The maximum cargo weight carried during the thaw period is as follows:
20’ Dry: 52,000* lbs maximum cargo weight
40’ Dry: 52,000* lbs maximum cargo weight
40’ Refrigerated: 48,000* lbs maximum cargo weight
*These weights are still subject to overweight charges, however, they are the absolute max in order to move to/from the area.
The Spring thaw period projected dates is as follows:
Monday, March 9, 2020 – May 22, 2020
Depending on weather conditions, these dates may be brought forward or pushed back.
As always, we thank you for your continued support.
