Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have harmonized their requirements for long combination vehicles (LCVs).
Harmonizing these rules will now allow carriers to transport goods more easily and efficiently across the four provinces while reducing emissions and lowering shipping costs.
LCVs are made up of a single tractor pulling two full-length trailers, effectively replacing two tractor-trailers. They are best suited for freight that is light and bulky, weigh no more than standard tractor-trailers and do less damage to transportation infrastructure. Harmonizing the requirements allows for the free movement of LCVs across these provinces, providing both economic and environmental benefits.
