Transport ministry issues draft rules for Road-Trains in a bid to make freight movement effective
The ministry of road transport and highways has issued draft standards for road-trains which it said would help bring down the cost of logistics in the country.
The standards have been prepared after examining European benchmarks, keeping in mind Indian operating conditions, the ministry said. “To revolutionize the transport of goods and reduce the overall logistic costs, the Automotive Industry Standards Committee has amended its AIS-113 Standard to include the safety requirements of Road-Trains,” a statement issued by the ministry on Friday said. These standards shall pave the way for a breakthrough intervention for fast and efficient movement of goods along the long-distance freight corridors, the ministry said.
Road-train is a motor vehicle wherein the traction is provided by the puller, which is connected to a serial combination of trailers or semi- trailers.
These ply on select stretches to reduce congestion, save fuel and reduce noise and air-pollution.
The automotive industry standards committee has representatives from the relevant ministries, testing agencies, industry stakeholders, Bureau of Indian Standards, among others.
The amended standard AIS-113 (Code of Practice for Type Approval of Trailers / Semi-trailers of categories T2, T3 and T4 being towed by Motor Vehicles of categories N2 and N3) has been published for invitation of public comments, after which it will be notified in due course.
