Au­thor­i­ties give warn­ing to trans­port com­pa­nies

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

The Law En­force­ment Depart­ment of Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Trans­porta­tion Com­mis­sion met with 22 com­pa­nies sus­pected of over­load­ing trucks Wed­nes­day morn­ing, Xin­min Evening News re­ported.

This is the first such talk since Shang­hai im­ple­mented an au­to­matic in­spec­tion sys­tem in 2016 that can de­tect over­load­ing with­out ac­tu­ally stop­ping pass­ing ve­hi­cles.

In­spec­tion data shows that, from Au­gust 7 to 31, over 70,000 among 823,000 pass­ing ve­hi­cles were over­loaded. Shang­hai branch of China Na­tional Petroleum Corp (CNPC) Trans­porta­tion Co and Shang­hai Deng­guan Lo­gis­tics Co were caught over­load­ing.

As over­load­ing causes dam­age to roads as well as po­ten­tial traf­fic haz­ards, the depart­ment re­quires all listed com­pa­nies to cease over­load­ing and re­port their rec­ti­fi­ca­tion mea­sures to the depart­ment.
