Question - Movement of bulk material during transit - create an over axle weight issue

My company has end dumps. We are investigating hauling bulk agriculture products. We have had a few issues where our gross weight is fine BUT load shifts slightly causing an over axle situation.
please give me some experience and solutions... need some advice to prevent problems.

I woulx say you need to load less gross to handle to overaxle problem. Or you need more axles, or maybe a spread axle trailer. Would want to make sure the king pin setting is shallow enough to force weight backwards. Since these are dumps, i dont believe a baffle would be useable.
