The load carrying capacity of highways is limited for the safety of transportation vehicles and the cargo carried. Vehicles of different sizes that transport freight have different tonnage limits. The dimensions of vehicles such as trucks, pickup trucks, and centipedes determine the limits of the loads they can carry. Load carrying limits do not vary according to brands. The load carrying capacity of trucks is standardized by law.

## Truck Dimensions and Load Capacities

The load carrying capacity of trucks used in domestic and international transportation is proportional to the dimensions of the vehicles. Truck load carrying limit also varies depending on the nature and function of the vehicle.
