Qatar reviews heavy transport regulations

February 16 - The Cabinet of Qatar has reviewed recommendations from the heavy transport committee to improve the regulation of heavy transport in the country.

The Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Transport and Communications and Qatar Chamber delivered the committee's first quarterly report to the Cabinet at a recent meeting.

The report addressed a number of issues that the committee has studied and the recommendations it proposes, including: the establishment of a database for all those involved in heavy transport, from individuals to companies and commercial institutions; the registration of transport vehicles, heavy machinery and equipment owned by citizens; and the development of a unified model for contracts to hire heavy transport equipment.

The committee was established in 2014 to examine all matters relating to heavy transport in Qatar, in particular to study the ways in which heavy transport can be organised and propose practical and appropriate mechanisms for this management.

The committee is also responsible for identifying frameworks and setting rules for the heavy transport industry in the country in coordination with concerned authorities.
