From January 1, 2022, the limit will be a maximum of 40 tons. 44 tons is only allowed for intermodal transport. Anyone who exceeds this and is caught can expect a fine of at least 135 euros. In France, since 2013, a maximum weight for trucks of 44 tons has been applied. In Belgium, the maximum is also 44 tons. Since then, however, European rules have continued to apply to cross-border transport, allowing a maximum of 40 tons.
