荷兰 Netherlands


The traffic situation in the Netherlands becomes apparent at the rush hours mostly as a stau. The maximum speed allowed for Trucks of 80 km/h is kept by the professional windmills Truck drivers predominantly.

Holland has to offer not only windmills and tulips but also great buildings. The dykes like here the Afsluitdijk protect the whole land from a renewed storm flood like it was already happend in 1953.

The economic growth in China is not to be stopped. The Trucking Industry has become one of the most important branches of Industry in the Country. Nearly all famous Truck manufacturer have cooperated, in the meantime, with Chinese Truck builders and therefore the beauties of China have got oriented respectful to the western Countrys.


Unfortunately, the times have not really improved for most hard working inhabitants of China by the ernorme growth of the Country . Thus issues have risen the pollutant by the Truck traffic so strongly report the inhabitant about lasting sore throat. At night assemble, like here in Wuhan, Hubei Province, to get many Trucks with idling engine around after delivery by the tanker the often rationed amount from 5 gallons only in the gas stations.


The everyday stau on major roads in China is partly that long as Truck by Truck line up to 110-km length.

The Vehicle Gross Weight for Trucks is 55 tons. they can haul about 40 tons which is been watched by the Police. In China Trucks moving with team drivers only. Trucking without a second driver is not allowed.

英国 United Kingdom

During my trips to the U.K. i had to knew country and people.
the old land is very nice, unfortunately, also totally full of people. outdoors in the nature the streets are barely suitable for trucks. However, there is a well developed long distance road system.

The crime appears at Motorway`s. Truckers getting warned on signs by the police.


In the whole country people using the wrong side of the road. visitors have to take care of left driven traffic.


there are a bunch of toll roads in the U.K. but the major roads are still free usable.

ROMANIA still belongs to the poorer countrys of the European Union. I could collect my experience by the transport of chocolate in the capital of Bucharest. Corruption at all levels immobilized this land nearly, however, the West German currency at that time German mark helped many long-distance truckdrivers at the border being dispatched faster.
A 20 Deutsch Mark note in an invalid passport made a topical visa stamp into the passport by a drunk border employee.
I saw parked trucks on Bucharest`s roads without mirrors but a purpose. the drivers took them off cause they was afraid about theft matters.


德国是我的祖国。我已经长大了在北莱茵维斯伐利亚,于21岁了驾驶卡车的第一次。德国`s基础架构是非常昂贵,是现代欧洲卡车运输`s的长途卡车在德国提出高要求的驱动程序。他必须有充分的训练和严格的监督机关,这意味着序今天 转向过度的时间是很难做到。驾驶部分仍然敦促非法侵犯。
其实悲伤,何况汽车和卡车之间的速度差异带车司机心情不好反对的卡车业务和其驱动程序。政府的政治答案是只丑,以及他们设置超过几乎所有 4 路公路上的卡车限制标志。
Germany is my home Country. I have grown up in North Rhine Westfalia. When I turned 21 years of age I got my european license for driving big trucks the first time. Germany`s infrastructure is very high and Goods are transported in modern European Cabover truck`s. Longhaul trucking in Germany puts high claims to the driver. He must be well trained and is strictly supervised by the ordinal organs which means throughout the newest rules and regulations steering time excesses are hardly possible. Drivers are partially still urged to unlawful violations by dispatches. The speed limit for big trucks, here also known as LKW is 80 km/h. Possible speed, limited by law is almost 90 km/h. Regular roads and highways which are not belong to the German Autobahn system require a very bored speed limit for big trucks above 7.5 tons GVWR regulated at 60 km/h.
Actually sad to mention that the speed difference between cars and trucks will bring car drivers in a bad mood against the trucking business and its driver. The gouverments political answer was just ugly as well as they set passing restriction signs for trucks on nearly all 4 way Autobahn Highways which sometimes resulted in truck lining up on the right lane for many kilometres.
