Québec Spring Thaw Restrictions for 2015

CMA CGM wishes to remind its customers Québec Spring Thaw Restrictions.


The Ministère des Transports du Québec reminds heavy vehicle users and shippers that, as each year, authorized load limits are reduced during the Spring Thaw period in order to take into account the weaker load bearing capacity of the road network during that period.
