the weight a semi can haul depends on the empty weight of the semi subtract the empty weight from 80thousand pounds. eg ; 80.000 minus empty weight 21.000 equals 59.000 pounds in this instance the cargo that could be legally hauled is 59000 pounds total semi weight which includes all tarps, straps ,equipment and load equal 80.000 pounds
Legally, about 140 - 150% of its tare weight. Most could haul significantly more if need be.
A refridgerated truck can haul 42,500-44,500lbs of good depending on how heavy the rig is. The truck can gross 80,000 total.
Gross 52,000 lbs
In the US, unless otherwise permitted, 80,000 lbs.

They are not bad! Trains are great for getting cargo from one place to another quite literally with less fuel than what semi trucks consume when they haul cargo from point A to point B. You can haul a lot more cargo with a train than you can with semi, that's for sure!
Typically, between 44,000 - 48,000 lbs. of cargo, under US weight limitations.
depending on the truck, the weight of cargo etc . the fuel milage can be anywhere from 4 mpg to about 9 mpg
The best way to transport cargo from the warehouse to the dock is by semi truck.
Well, that depends on what it's pulling. The federal law allows a max weight of 80,000 lbs., including for double trailers. Some states will allow a truck pulling doubles to gross 92,000 within that state. They can haul as much weight legally as a tandem axle tractor-trailer can, so long as they remain within legal axle weights.
Most semi trucks are able to do long hauling. You should choose a relatively new truck that fits your budget.
Three or more. I've run units with 21 axles before. A typical line haul truck has five.

Who invented the Semi-truck?
Depends greatly on the configuration of the truck and trailer but average cargo capacity is about 42,000 lbs or 4050 cubic feet.
A deadhead truck has a trailer attached but carries no freight. Deadheading means driving a cargo carrying truck (semi-truck) pulling an empty trailer. Deadheading often happens when a trucker returns or backhauls the empty cargo container to the point of origin. Be careful not to confuse “deadheading” with “bobtailing,” which happens when driving a cargo carrying truck without a trailer attached.
Anywhere from 50 to 300, depending on how the buyer had it spec'd out. 240 gallons is pretty common for a line haul OTR truck.
The weight of a truck that is filled to capacity will depend on the truck. There are many different kinds of truck, and they begin with the smaller imports to the full-sized pickup. Then we move on to more "commercial" haulers and upward to what are often called the semi-trailer truck (the semi or big rig). Weights of these truck vary, and the weight of their payloads can vary as well. A whole different class of truck is set up for off-highway use, and an example of these would be the huge dump trucks used in open pit mines. Weights of these vehicles can vary quite a bit, as you'd expect. Use the link below to the related question for some numbers.
Without requiring a permit, 102 inches. As for what it's capable of hauling, it's all a matter of what can be balanced.
If the semi truck knocked on the garbage truck, yes.
