Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) periodically publishes a guide that summarizes the maximum weights and dimensions for on-highway vehicle configurations hauling logs and operating under the British Columbia Commercial Transport Act Regulations. This latest guide supersedes all previous FERIC guides on this topic.

Abstract
In 1997, the use of tridem drive log hauling vehicles was approved for use on BC highway. With the move to highway-type tridem drive tractors pulling tridem pole trailers, the adequacy of single span bridges on off-highway haul roads needed to be evaluated. In 1999, FERIC studied the adequacy of single span bridges, designed to BC Ministry of Forests standards, with respect to the new 7-axle vehicles carrying off-highway-size loads, and presents the findings in this report.

Abstract
This report describes the development and monitoring of two off-highway tridem pole trailers operating on Vancouver Island. The project was conducted from 1993 to 1997 by FERIC, and MacMillan Bloedel Limited. The report details the design and fabrication operational experience and productivity, brake maintenance costs, and braking performance of the tridem pole trailer. In addition, a cost-benefit analysis for converting conventional tandem pole trailers to tridem pole trailers was conducted.

Abstract
In Western Canada, log-transportation costs are often the highest phase cost of supplying wood to the mills. The industry has attempted to reduce costs by adding axles to trailers to increase the legal payloads. However, with increased payloads, traction has become a limiting factor for Class 8 tractors, especially in the off-highway portion of the log hauling cycle. In response, FERIC initiated a feasibility study in 1989 to investigate the potential of a tridem tractor addressing the industry's needs for improved tractive performance. A computer simulation indicated that a tridem tractor has more tractive ability than the conventional tandem drive tractors, and that log truck combinations with a single articulation point are more dynamically stable than those with two or more articulation points. The principal drawback predicted by the simulations was a reduced level of steering responsiveness for the tridem tractor configurations. The report recommended that a tridem tractor be evaluated while in revenue service to verify the simulation results, and that operational costs and productivities be determined (Amlin 1992).
