Unfortunately we started noticing that again some trucks are being delivered with overweight. Referring to the new Municipal Port Police Regulations from 15/09/2019, overweight is strictly prohibited and we cannot ship units which find themselves in this condition.
Zero-tolerance on overweight.
o For all vehicles, the Maximum Allowable Mass (MAM) must be strictly respected.
Therefore we find ourselves obliged to charge 300,00 EUR to arrange every unit with overweight, in order to deblock it for further shipment in compliance with the Municipal Port Police Regulations.
Please be informed about the new rules which will be applied on all terminals as from 15/09 with regards to deliveries of secondhand cargo. For you easy reference below we highlighted the main important changes into the existing regulations. Thanks to read all these carefully and make sure cargo delivered is always in compliance with the port regulations. 1. Zero-tolerance on overweight. o For all vehicles, the Maximum Allowable Mass (MAM) must be strictly respected.
