  • Higher Axle Loads to improve Transport Efficiency But Safety Concerns need to be addressed

    18-Jul-2018 | New Delhi

    The recent notification by Government allowing an increase in the maximum permissible axle load on trucks is a move in right direction which will improve the efficiency of commercial transport in the country. However, in the absence of adequate enforcement of rated load compliance in the field, prevalent practices of rampant overload could pose serious road safety threats, which may necessitate government issuing suitable advisories for better clarity. This was stated by Dr. Abhay Firodia, President, SIAM today. Dr. Firodia said, “Globally, higher axle loads are permitted which enables higher efficiencies in the goods transport industry. In India, historically, we had allowed lower axle loads as well as lower vehicle speeds due to the inability of our road and highway infrastructure to support such higher loads or speeds. With the modernization of India’s roads and highways, it is natural for Government to look at higher load carrying capacities in trucks. SIAM, in principle, has supported an increase in axle loads upto the European levels” Dr. Firodia added.
