About CTP

The Coalition for Transportation Productivity (CTP) is a coalition of about 200 shippers and allied associations dedicated to increasing the federal vehicle weight limit to 97,000 pounds for vehicles equipped with an additional (sixth) axle.

CTP advocates for heavier - not bigger - six-axle trucks that meet the same safety standards as trucks currently allowed on interstates.

Raising interstate weight limits for six-axle tractor-trailers would effectively help address the safety, economic and environmental challenges facing our nation's freight transportation network. CTP supports a user fee on units equipped with the additional axle that would be used for bridge repair.
