    Container Weight Limitations

    Weight Limitations

    The maximum gross weight of a container for our road transport within Victoria is 30 tonnes. This includes the weight of the container itself.

    Therefore, the maximum cargo weight for goods is:

    • 27.72 t for a 20’ GP container (less if HC or reefer)
    • 26.17 t for a 40’ GP container (less if HC or reefer)

    Weights greater than this will require unpacking at the terminal and will incur additional charges.

    Additionally, containers with a gross weight of over 22.5 t will incur additional charges due to additional resource expenditures to maintain compliance with National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) laws and regulations.
