We at 1UP Cargo strive to keep you up to date with all the relevant supply chain and logistics developments. With this in mind we would like to alert you to changes in Quebec Weight Levels for 2021 based on the Spring Thaw Period.
The Quebec Ministry of Transport has issued its regulations for the annual Spring Thaw Period. This restriction is placed by the local authorities to account for road network’s lower weight bearing capacity during the annual thaw period. The weight restrictions apply to all truck movement to and from Quebec.
For the thaw period of 2021, the predicted starting dates of the load restriction period for each of the thaw zones are indicated below.
