Cargo trucks get another 6-month reprieve from anti-overloading policy

Cargo trucks with codes 12-2 and 12-3 have been given another six-month reprieve from the enforcement of the anti-overloading policy.

Public Works Secretary Mark Villar and Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade signed the public advisory extending the moratorium to June 30, 2021 “to give haulers/truckers more time to acquire additional transport equipment to conform with the latest GVW [gross vehicle weight].”

The moratorium covers enforcement of the anti-overloading policy for trucks categorized under codes 12-2 and 12-3; it took effect on January 1, 2021 after the last moratorium expired on December 31, 2020.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has applied the moratorium since January 1 despite late publication of the official notice.
