OSW - Holiday Travel Restriction -- Vehicles with Overweight Commodity Permits are no longer subject to holiday travel restrictions and may travel continuously during holiday periods. Overweight Commodity Permits apply to those vehicles with a permit to haul metal commodities up to 120,000 pounds or agricultural commodities up to 97,000 pounds. All other permitted oversize and/or overweight vehicles remain subject to all holiday travel restrictions.
OSW - Change to Permitting Requirements for Fluid Milk Products -- A recent change in federal law declared vehicles carrying fluid milk products to be non-divisible loads. As a result, Indiana is no longer able to issue Overweight Commodity Permits for these vehicles. Vehicles carrying fluid milk products with a GVW greater than 80,000 pounds must obtain standard Overweight Permits for travel in Indiana; all requirements, limitations, permit provisions and permit fees for standard Overweight Permits apply.
Biennial Updates -- Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all entities under its jurisdiction to update their information every two years. You are required to provide this update every two years even if your company has not changed its information, has ceased interstate operations since the last update, or is no longer in business and you did not notify FMCSA.
