                          Interesting as always, but for a Swede/Finn it's still a mysterium why wood is transported in a closed container while there are excellent forestry trucks available, that could load more cargo.
                          BTW: my granddad (and also my father for a couple of years) was a forest trucker in the northern parts of Finland during the 1940-1960's, tough work to say the least, specially during wintertime, I'm not jeleaus. The wood was loaded by hand, so that was not 26 tons per load...

                            .

                            thats true, but thats is only for when it's stays in the aeria to a sawmill or something like that.
                            those logs goes to Asia,to far away for a forestry truck to deliver,also when you see the GE maps,even to far away from Rotterdam.
                            and they could load more (mine weights with a empty container between 22 and 23 tons, depends of container) ,but they have to secure the logs too then for transport to Rotterdam and they need many forestry trucks also to deliver them to Rotterdam. that one forestry truck loaded 6 containers within a few hours, there are times every day 6 to 8 containers a day. we stay on the gravel/tarmac paths, but that can also in the middle of a forrest,but we stay out of the soil paths. the forestry trucks collect them from the forrest,our office get the cordinats of were we had to wait and the boss pick us up from the parking place and take us into the forrest where there is place to park so that he can load them.
                            works well

                              Interesting report, Thijs.

                              When you go to backroads like these, do you sometimes worry the road can not handle the weight of your cargo and truck?

                                No not really. Most of those roads are gravel and solid. When it is just soil we don't go in the forrest.
                                Cost to much to pull us out. We don't have the right type of tyres for that. We always get a place were we wait for the logs truck. A parking place or a cross- roads.in the forrest or nearby, but with no traffic.

                              oohhhh I'm driving my life away, looking for a better way forr me
                              ooohh driving i'm driving my

                              BAM
