big trucks in China
Author: ts1457

A bit off topic, but it does involve transportation and a mode (trucking) that is at times competitive with rail.

I was trying to find what the standard semi-trailer dry van size is in China and came across this article about huge car transporters.  Take a look at the one pictured in the article:

Thankfully the monster car transporters were being banned at the time of the story (2017).

The article made me think of the ridiculous made up click-bail stories with doctored photos on the internet, but this one looks like it was real.

They’re real...very common on the highway between Shanghai and Hongzhou.
