High Mass Limits

Visy Logistics is continually updating its linehaul assets so they are accredited for High Mass Limits (HML). These vehicles provide linehaul services between Australia’s capital cities.

HML allows heavy vehicles to access additional mass entitlements providing operators of vehicles (or combinations) the ability to run HML on tri-axle groups that are accredited under the Mass Management Module of the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS). These have an accreditation label fitted to the hauling unit vehicles and must be on an authorised HML route.


HML Benefits

  • A significant increase in the productivity of road freight transport vehicles
  • Increased product weight and therefore reducing cost per unit
