The results? Nowadays more than 70% of our economy depend on roads to keep moving... our products cost more than it should.. and rich countries keep getting wealthier and we still stuck in this third world misery... we just don't take advantage of our potential.
Interesting. If such a big country can't go on it's own way of development, that's a pity.

I was a bit confused about the 4th axle of the trailer as well, but the orange-yellow plate in the middle betrays that this trailer must be splitable. You'll see that sometimes with sea containers too, when there are 2 20 ft's loaded on one chassis. Nice piece of technique.

Welcome to the third world, or the 'real world' considering that the majority of the world's population live on this condition.
Those things are slowly changing, wait a few more decades and you will see.

A pity is what humans can do with humans.. in such a big proportion such as europe did with africans, south americans....

In Italy is also Algida. In France is Miko and in Portugal Olá. I continue on the roadside rest area.

Usual road trains in Australia are up to 4 trailers long. However, the Granite Gold Mine in the Northern Territory runs 7-trailer road trains on private property (hence not limited by government regulations). These are called "powertrains", and they have an additional engine unit.

. Once, I saw a photo with a truck with some 20-30 trailers, I don't remember.

Yes, those are guiness book of records attempts. I believe the record is 112 trailers. However, these are not actually used in transport. The K-variant of the road train (pictured above) is the longest truck combination in use in the world, but not legal on public roads. (they operate on private property of the mine, and drive a 100 km round-trip. They substitute dump trucks).

I know when I took my air brakes course, the instructor mentioned that in some Dutch/Danish container ports, there are trains of up to 20, 20 foot long, close coupled container trailers. Not legal on the road of course, but effective at moving a lot of short containers around.

Apparently, there was a trial in the UK with 90 meter trucks. Not sure if this pic is fake (parked trailers it seems)

Definately parked. I don't see any dolly's and the 'legs' of the trailers are all put down.

I used to be at the container termainals in Rotterdam quite often in 2008, but I haven't seen them that long. More like 5 of 6 40ft's. For example here, at the Delta Terminal on the Maasvlakte.

A nice ecocombi combination I spotted on the A1 motorway. This configuration is rather unusual. These are probably used for voluminous transport with not too much weight considering the low number of axles.
