Yesterday, the Wuxi Municipal Government issued a message that in the future, before the high-speed trucks in Wuxi, they should first go on the refuse to exceed the scale test, so that the load can pass through the clamp.

Designers claim that the design meets the specifications.

The company declined to comment on where the image came from.

Follow up

After the accident, the local freight car pulled only one coil and the freight increased.

Yesterday, the reporter visited the steel city and logistics enterprises near the accident site, and found that after the accident, the truck pulled only one coil at a time, and the transportation cost rose sharply, from 20 yuan per ton to 35 yuan or higher.

A truck driver said that no one officially notified that no overloading, just after the accident, we consciously dare not.

One car before, six now

Yang Xiongs six-axle semi-trailer pulled only a roll of steel. He made a special video and sent a circle of friends saying, Its a bit out of habit.

After picking up goods from the wharf in Jiangyin, he went south along Xicheng Road and went to Jiangsu Daming Metal Products Company near 312 National Road. The whole journey went very smoothly.

Reporters saw that, because each truck only pulled a coil of steel, unloading quickly, Yang Xiong did not have to queue, only spent more than 10 minutes from the factory.

Along National Highway 312, almost all the trucks that reporters saw were pulling a coil of steel, and some trucks had no time to dismantle the wooden brackets originally installed for carrying more coils. There used to be one car, but now there are six cars. They are not enough. A truck driver said.

Because there are a lot of big trucks passing by on weekdays, pits and holes can be seen everywhere on Zhongyuan Road leading to 312 National Highway. Frequent trucks pass by, and new dust is released before the dust falls down.

The driver of a truck said that the area was still busy, but the biggest change was that the truck pulled fewer goods than before the accident. Yang Xiong said that no one officially notified that no overloading, just after the accident, everyone consciously dared not.

Freight increased from 20 yuan per ton to 35 yuan

In two days, the freight has gone up. A merchant in Dongfang Steel City said that in the past it was 20 yuan per ton, but now it almost doubles, and some enterprises have more than doubled.

Yang Xiong has no objection to higher freight rates. His transportation company has only a few cars, responsible for short-distance steel transportation between Wuxi, Jiangyin and Zhangjiagang. In the past two days, the transportation cost of his company has increased from 20 yuan per ton to 35 yuan.

Yang Xiong felt that if each car was loaded less, it would save the queue time for loading and unloading, and he would no longer have to avoid the traffic police to pick up the morning and evening. Dont be frightened, you can safely run a few more trips and draw a few more commissions.

On the dock side, we dont ask how to load the goods.

Mr. Ding said that after the truck came in, the company would issue a Notice of Entry to the driver and ask for his signature. The reporter saw that article 7 of the regulation: when the vehicle leaves the wharf, it is deemed that the driver approves the completion of the operation procedures. If there is overload, cargo tilting, sliding and other accidents and other circumstances, they have nothing to do with the wharf.
