Transportation partnership programs allow shippers or receivers in Saskatchewan to increase productivity through reduced transportation costs. This is done by using vehicles that safely exceed current regulated weights and/or dimensions. In exchange, partners pay for any incremental damage to provincial infrastructure.
Vehicle weights and dimensions in Saskatchewan are limited by regulation to ensure the safety of the travelling public and to allow the efficient transportation of goods within and through the province.
A Trucking Partnership Agreement (TPA) is an agreement between the government and a shipper or receiver to allow the movement of goods by trucks that:
Under the demonstration project, carriers using tri-drive trucks are allowed to pull both pony trailers and full trailers. The government is also allowing carriers to transport additional weight under these configurations.
Bulk Haul Partnership Agreements allow movement of freight at weights and/or dimensions exceeding those defined in regulation on provincial highway system.
Timber Haul Agreements are between the province and forestry product shippers to move overweight/over-dimensional vehicles on the provincial highway system.
Haul agreements are not taken with truckers or trucking companies – only with timber processors.
Freight includes round wood, wood waste and finished wood products.
A permit will allow the vehicle to carry more cargo as long as it does not exceed any other legal dimension they are permitted for. If this occurs, they would require a TPA.
The Over-dimensional Vehicle Haul Partnership Agreement allows the movement of over-length or over-width vehicles and/or loads on the provincial highway system.
When vehicles exceed a regulated dimension with a single piece of cargo, they can be issued single trip permits through the SGI permit office (In Province: 1-800-667-7575, Out-of-Province: 1-306-775-6969).
Container Transfer Agreements are between the province and trucking company or shipper to move loaded or empty containers on a container chassis on the provincial highway system.
This policy is in place to facilitate the efficient transfer of loaded and empty containers between the shipper and the railway.
Allow movement of goods at primary weights on secondary weight roads (including TMS roads).
The agreements apply to truck hauls moving:
