The Relationship between Overloading and Over Dimension of Freight Vehicle

Anton Budiharjo, Ahmad Fauzi, - Masrukhin, Bagus Prasetyo

Abstract

The freight vehicle, as the primary mode of goods distribution, has a relatively small carrying capacity.  However, it is forced to be able to meet the demand. As a result, many business actors overload their freight vehicles to reduce transportation costs. In organizing the transportation of goods, the indications are such violations in vehicle dimensions (over dimensions) in line with the business actors' vehicle overload. This study aims to determine the effect of over-size on an overload of the freight vehicle. This study's research method is a quantitative method that used a survey technique to collect the data and used the statistical method of regression and correlation as the analysis method. The study results reveal that the level of overloading at Widang weighbridge reached an average of 44.72% per day. In comparison, the level of overloading at the Losarang weighbridge reached 87.85% per day. The vehicle dimension measurement survey results showed that from 159 vehicle samples, there were 107 over-dimension vehicles in the form of length, width, and height, and there were 32 vehicles, which increased their tire size. The statistical analysis of regression and correlation tests showed that only the addition of the maximum vehicle dimensions, which had a significant effect on the overweight.
