GHMS membership for 2016/17 will cost $135 (inc. GST) per vehicle. This price is indexed yearly to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Continuing GHMS members will be able to use stickers from 2015/16 (yellow) and 2016/17 (green) until Sunday 17 July 2016 (inclusive). This will allow for 2016/17 stickers to be dispatched without disrupting member’s use of the GHMS while transitioning into 2016/17.
Any deliveries received after 17 July 2016 with 2015/16 stickers will be treated as a normal load and will not receive the GHMS concession.
Registered GHMS receivers:
GHMS recognises the difficulty of in-field and on-farm loading a bulk commodity such as grain, with varying moisture contents and densities, to within an accurate weight tolerance.
The Scheme is designed to alleviate some of these uncertainties by allowing Scheme participants to take advantage of certain "flexibilities” set above normal regulation mass limits when field loading bulk commodities.
The Scheme will function each year from 1 July to 30 June the following year. The Scheme is designed to benefit the grain industry, the community and the road transport industry.
Overall, the intent of the Scheme is to allow for an efficient grain harvest and to protect the road infrastructure through eliminating gross overloading by appropriate administrative procedures and compliance activities.
Participation in the Scheme is not restricted to farmers and is open to anyone making deliveries to approved receival points during the harvest.
