I hate to bust your bubble, but I think that has nothing to do with criticality whatsoever.  The loads are simply placed over the axles.  I've seen this configuration frequently when quite heavy objects are loaded onto flatbeds.  It significantly reduces the flex and bounce of the flatbed itself.  Some truckers prefer this kind of loading arrangement.

But correct me if I'm wrong!

Notice how the fissile material is transported, the two canisters are far 
apart, compared to less enriched material, which is stacked close together 
on the truck.

I took all these pictures.Since this trip my mobile lab also includes 
neutron detection.

That's where Cameco processes the yellowcake into purified UO3 at Blind 
River and converted to UF6 at Port Hope.
