Remember that a truck in general can't be faster than 80-90 Km/h and taking example the route Istanbul-Salzburg, this is 1800 km. A truck driver can't drive more than 9 hours in a day, and max 48 hours in a week (this for the law, then we all know that they drive hours and hours without stop). It means that for to cover the distance you need 23 hours at the avarage of 80 Km/h. This would be impossible. Especially crossing borders in Bulgaria, Serbia, Croazia, Slovenia. 3 days to arrive is more real instead. The ferry service between Istanbul and Triste spends 2,5 days for to arrive. Advantages to send trucks like this, besides less borders to cross, is saving much fuel and the manutention of the trucks. A turkish company that operates in Germany after years of using ferries will have a truck with less Km on the odometer than a truck driving on routes. Less km = less manutention = saving money.

This is the website of the ferry company operating between Turkey and Europe

Indeed!

, Satyricon.

Anyone have any idea, though, what's going on in the first one? Why they're all parked along the side of the road?

DSV A danish trucking company which bought the dutch Frans Maas transport. I remember seeing Frans Maas trucks before, now I know they have ceased operations. Thanks wikipedia.

I saw 3 DSV trucks travelling in convoy probably. The truckers try to keep eachother company in this antisocial profession. Or is there another reason for driving in convoy ?



Truck with a type of trailer-coupling I've not seen before.

HCS transport from DK.

That is normal overtaking, if an ******* is doing lower than allowed speed limit.

Simple. In US and Canada, railways do not have the very small locomotives that European railways do, so it's easier and more practical to use a Hi-Rail equipped lorry. It's also more flexible too, since it (the truck) can be used for on road requirements as well. Germany and Switzerland are two countries that I know of, that use Unimogs in the same manner.

Truckers tend to travel together if they are going the same direction, especially if they will be stopping at the same truck stop, restaurant, fuel station, or whatever.

As for the 5th wheel coupling... They aren't that common in much of Europe so far as I know. Finland I believe is the exception. In N. America, the 5th wheel coupling for multi-trailer combinations is the norm, though it's just as common to see a drawbar setup as well.

This Norwegian video shows the difference in braking distance with new tires and worn out (but legal) tires on a snow covered road.

I have heard that here in Sweden authorities are soon going to introduce new legislation for trucks. All trucks must have winter tyres during the winter season. Mostly due to the serious accident in south sweden recently where many trucks were involved.

Which means: Additonnal costs for an already afflicted industry.

A snowcat towing a conventional truck during construction of a new ropeway to the Klein Matterhorn. The top station will be at around 3900 m. They are now building a temporary ropeway staring from Cervinia in Italy, so as to transport materials on the mountain. This ropeway will later be dismantled.
