(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon is planning the instauration of a weighbridges’ maintenance charge, the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) informs in its latest sectoral report.

According to the organization, this charge should be XAF15,000 per m3 of timber transported via Cameroonian roads. It will be paid to the private company operating the weighbridges, the sectoral report adds.

Let’s note that because of their usually heavy loads, logging trucks are considered the main destroyers of road infrastructure in Cameroon. So, the government has decided to place a weight limit on the volume of timber those trucks can transport to protect roads. To ensure compliance with that limitation, weighbridges have been installed.
