REGINA, Sask. — The Saskatchewan government has introduced shipper legislation making the consignor of goods liable for the intentional overloading of a truck.
The Ministry of Transportation and Highways is in the process of identifying shippers and consignors so it can make them aware of this new legislation and launch a public awareness campaign.
The B.C. Trucking Association is encouraged by the move, as it has been lobbying the Insurance Corp. of B.C. to implement a similar set of rules in that province.
