An interesting month ahead for hauliers

November is going to be an interesting month for both hauliers and their customers.

height restrictions on loads
As of the 1st of November a height restriction will be enforced on Irish hauliers. This restriction has been in place since 2008 but hasn't been enforced. A new legal height of 4.65m will have to be adhered to, this will put an extra cost on farmers who buy straw or hay.

An artic load of round bales usually carries 60 to 62 bales, but with this new law the load will be reduced by a third to 40 to 42 bales and will increase the haulage by a third at the least.  The very same will apply to large square bales. This law only applies to Irish hauliers, Northern Ireland and UK hauliers ware not affected.

On a positive note,  the NRA have decided to lift the fee on a select few tolls to see if it will encourage hauliers to use the main motorways. A lot of haulage companies are currently using the old roads to avoid the cost of the tolls. If the NRA dropped the price of the toll the hauliers then hauliers would use it more and would result in small towns becoming free of HGVs.

 


 

The IRHA held a meeting for hauliers in Charleville last Wednesday evening. A big crowd turned up and many were angry and frustrated hauliers. A few hauliers have informed us that the traffic corp have been playing havoc with operators and have been very picky in relation to the tying of loads.

It seems that there is no legal way to tie down a load as no two loads are the same. It’s a very grey area so hopefully the hauliers will be listened to by the traffic corp and that they will work together to resolve it.
