We’ve got good news for some businesses – Quebec’s Transportation Ministry lifted its load restrictions during the spring thaw period in response to Covid-19.
This latest measure was implemented on March 25th for vehicles of combinations of vehicles transporting foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, sanitary materials, medical equipment and products necessary for the production of food-grade merchandise. These vehicles will now have the right to revert to the load limits provided for during normal non-thaw period.
To do this, a vehicle or a combination of vehicules must transport only foodstuffs, sanitary materials, pharmaceuticals and/or products necessary for the production of food-grade merchandise. They will need to comply with the legal charges applicable during normal period of time.
All others must comply with the load restrictions in force during the thaw period.
