High Cube Container – an innocuous steel container of 40′ x 8′ x 9’6″ is once again in the news in South Africa..
Some of you in South Africa may recall that in 2009, the Department of Transport in South Africa (DoT) implemented a ban on the transportation of high cube containers on the country’s roads..
This ban was however revoked within a matter of days..
Well, the DoT seems to be at it again, but this time, it is targeting the trailers that are carrying these high cube containers..
What is your take on the new trailer hauling ruling of hi-cube containers?
So what is your take on this ruling..??
As this may not be an issue unique to South Africa, I invite my readers from other countries to also contribute and share your views about this issue and if you are facing the same issue in your country, how is it being tackled there..??
Also remember that there are certain customers who do not want to use High Cube containers due to this 1 feet difference in height..
