How do you plant hay fields?

Planting hay is quite simple, all you need is a tractor and a seed planter. This is a machine that attaches to the Power take off (PTO) on the tractor and will evenly dispurse the seeds. Hay does not need the amount of tractor work other crops do, most hay feilds are natural grasses that are already growing (however, farmers do add in a variety of grasses), hay fields do not need to be sprayed or cutivated pre or post planting.

What is the major mode of transportation in Mexico?

Motor vehicles including cars, buses, trucks, SUVs, vans and motorcycles are the most common modes of inter-city transport. Air transportation is also common, but on a lesser degree. Railway transport is common for hauling heavy cargo loads.

Intra-city transport includes all motor vehicles described above, as well as many modes of public transportation such as bus, light railway, subway (especially on larger cities) and trolleybus.

Most import/export items are transported by rail, heavy truck or container ship. Some liquids such as natural gas and oil are transported through pipelines.

Some statistics are provided (2013):

  • Motor vehicles: 33.36 million
  • Passenger cars: 23.4 million
  • Airports: 1,714 (13 receive +1 million passengers per year; 2 receive +10 million passengers per year).
  • Railways: 17,166 km (10,668 mi)
  • Roadways: 377,660 km (234,717 mi)

How many pallets size 72x26x79 can fit in a 53 trailer?

I don't know if I'm reading this right, but, from how you put your dimensions, I gather the pallets are:

72 inches long

26 inches wide

79 inches high

It sounds wrong, but I'm going to go with that notion. If those dimensions are correct, you'd be able to fit 24 pallets in the truck (eight pallets lengthwise by three pallets wide - you only have enough inside height for one pallet).

A typical 53 foot trailer is 53 feet long by 102 inches wide (however, usable floor space may only be 96 inches), and has an inside height of 110 inches.

What is volume in shipping terms?

For domestic shipping we would normally refer to the volume as being a number of units of a product shipped and volume would not normally refer to cube, but in international logistics terms we might use the number of CBM (cubic meters) or TEUs (Twenty Foot Equivalent containers). International shipping is almost always performed in Metric Units - cbm & kgs. A TEU is 20 ft long by 108" wide * 112" high international shipping container.

When products are loaded into an international container, they may weight out - reach the allowed over the road weight when mounted on a chassis or they may cube out, if you are shipping a low density item such as pampers or cornflakes.

A good logistics planner will attempt to mix products to simultaneously cube & weight out, but as customers rarely order items in such a wonderful ratio, this nirvana is rarely reached. However, it should be noted that most international shipments are shipped in 40 ft standard containers that weight out with a tare weight around 67,000 pounds. With the container weight this will amount to 71,000 lbs and on the chassis pulled by a tractor, the weight limit is 80,000 lbs, distributed in a defined manner across the vehicles axles.

From this we can deduce that a 40ft standard container=2 TEUs, but the TEU may weight out or cube out or neither. So the volume does not necessarily reflect either cube or weight.
