Abstract
The load capacity of goods vehicles is a critical variable in calculating transport costs. In Europe, the Council Directive 96/53/EC establishes the maximum weight and dimensions of goods vehicles in international traffic but also allows that any Member State authorises the movement of vehicles that fail to comply with these weights and dimensions within its territory. For this reason, some countries have used this power to introduce internal regulations regarding the maximum transport capacity....
