Spring Thaw period Canada as from March 2019

28 Feb 2019

Annual period

The Canadian government as well as the carriers apply restrictions to cargo weight during the annual Spring Thaw period.

The maximum payload during this period is less than normal.
Spring Thaw is in effect from March 11th until May 24th 2019 but depending on weather conditions.
This weight restriction will affect all pre-carriages and deliveries per truck in the Province of Québec in Canada. Amongst others, the city Montreal is located here.

Maximum payload

The maximum allowable cargo weights vary per container and per carrier. It is important to note that the weight restrictions not only apply to the total cargo weight in the container but also to the distribution of the weight over the axles of the chassis.
