France allows 44-tonne truck operation

Paris, France: France now permits commecial vehicles to operate at 44-tonnes for multimodal operations and when carrying agricultural products.

The change allows 44-tonne gross vehicle weight operation for  combined transport, access to sea and river ports and transport of certain agricultural and agri-food products

A new order amends the article R. 312-4 of the Traffic Code relating to the limit on total permitted combined weight for heavy vehicles, which increases from 40 to 44 tonnes, in order to improve the competitiveness of the transport sector and reduce the number of heavy goods vehicles used for the transport of bulky cargoes, as well as CO2 emissions.
