As per attached article, there will soon be fines/costs for out of gauge cargo permits (where before it was free though considerable cost of application and follow-up needed). Fines are incremental depending on how much out of gauge the cargo is, both in terms of dimensions (L W H) and in terms of width.
Depending on how much out of gauge cargo is, this might affect costing for this type of cargo with immediate effect. No official confirmation yet though and Panda MD is yet to visit our offices which we hope he will do soon.
