50MAX – information for operators and manufacturers

50MAX gives freight operators an option to carry increased payloads on parts of the network that, while economically important to New Zealand, are unable to carry high productivity motor vehicles (HPMVs).

Here you will find everything you need to know about 50MAX – what your vehicle will need to look like, who can help you certify your vehicle, what you need to apply and where you can travel.

Please ensure you attach a completed 50MAX ready pro-forma and a 50MAX vehicle combination attribute sheet [DOC, 72 KB] for each combination to your application. The attributes check form needs to be completed and signed by a heavy vehicle specialist certifier.
