Each year in Quebec, the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) enacts spring weight restrictions that limit loads carried across at-risk highways. The policy, created to prevent road damage and provide a safe and consistent network of highways for the transport of goods, targets commercial carriers and takes into account vehicle length, axle load and spread, and the total loaded mass of vehicles and vehicle combinations.
For customers shipping to/from the Province of Quebec, please see the projected dates of enforcement below.
Zone 1: Monday, March 14th to Friday, May 13th
Zone 2: Monday, March 21st to Friday, May 20th
Zone 3: Monday, March 28th to Friday, May 27th
For native French speakers,details and updates regarding Quebec’s spring weight restrictions can be found on the MTO website. If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding Quebec’s commercial weight requirement, please contact Deringer’s Marketing Department.
