What does a nation of under 5 million due with 20 million liters a day?




Turn it into butter, cheese, ice cream, milk powder, baby formula and a lot more products and export it. The co-op midnitemack is driving for is responsible for approximately 30% of the world's dairy exports.

Running a B Trains helps I'm sure. All the milk tankers here are 40/24 or a pair of 32's with a short tongue dolly.

This is the other common configuration.

Is the gap behind the cab common? A truck tank that size is legal here on 4 axles (twin screw, 200"+ wb, drop axle), but there are about zero twin steer cabbies around. I've never seen milk hauled in a truck mounted tank, only fuel and water.

It's interesting how truck styles vary from region to region.

There is a guy locally who has at least 2 dump trucks that have a wide gap behind the cab.  Frames look longer then a standard dump and the body looks a bit longer.  I am guessing that stretching them out they have a higher weight limit by law but not sure.  Or maybe he got the trucks real cheap lolx
