Heavy Truck in a Street of Trois-Rivières, Canada
In North America, economies of scale are a strong driving force for deliveries. Stores tend to be bigger and thus require larger deliveries. Additionally, cities of small size tend to have limited congestion and a good availability of street space. It is therefore possible to use regular semi-trucks for deliveries such as on the above photo in Trois-Rivieres, a city of about 150,000 inhabitants.
