That will be really cool.

That’s why I’m excited for a Rebuild for California for he 15. Imagine the entire interstate to that grade

If there is one thing that has disappointed me about Idaho, It's that old convenience/supermarket depot prefab in Grangerville.... I dream of a day when I never have to deliver a load to one of those prefabs again. :lol:

IRL you will deliver to a distribution center or you have multiple delivery points
This is where SCS has failed miserable on the simulation aspect
Which store wants a full load of eg potatos?

^Sadly I agree. This the part I keep talking about the missing 1-2 companies in the flow chart. We are missing many processing plants/facilities/manufactures......whatever you want to call them and we are missing distribution centers/warehouses. ATS has a weird economy that doesn't make sense in most cases. Hopefully as more states come, companies get added based on goods and services.

I delivered bulk cement from Coastline Mining directly to Home Store yesterday. Should that not go get processing first at a bagging facility. Then I take bagged goods to Home Store on a flatbed? Bulk cement should go to Plaster and Sons or Butimen to use directly on construction. Bulk milk from the farm to Wallbert? Should that not get bottled and packaged first? Cargo overhauls should take place whenever new companies jump into the mix. I honestly think this is why Idaho didn't introduce any new companies, so that they don't have to worry about modifying the economy. This was a unexpected move by SCS in which I don't agree with. Its not very often that I don't agree with something SCS does either, but Idaho did leave some things on the table and in turn, hung some of us out to dry. There was definitely a sacrifice made but if all they were going for was pretty, they succeeded.

hangman005, I had a delivery to it.
But those are somewhat realistic, depending on what 1 delivers there.
NTM's B-Double Telescopic Skeletal Container Carrier. Youtube video on how it works. W & S thread.
B-Double trailer and short modes: EN 7.82 swap body, 20’ or 30’ containers.
Standalone 40' mode: EN 7.82 swap body, 20', 30', 40' or 2 x 20' trailer.

It is quite normal for LGVs to deliver to a grocery store but it would be from distribution centers with multiple delivery points not directly from a production facility
For ETS2 SCS has talked about this chain of deliveries several times, eg live stock to production facility and meat to the grocery
I can live with single delivery point, I am but a reasonable man :D

@Shiva I think they could do with a bit of a rework to give a bit more space. It's not as bad as the same one in Raton, NM. That's a pain in the but because you can only come at it from one direction.

plykkegaard, multi delivery, I wait for that to come for the SCS games :)

hangman005, some IRL places can be even trickier :)
Sometimes I might back into those prefabs, sometimes lazy and just turning around inside. A bit less fun when already a trailer there.

Lewiston ID to Kennewick WA, still no deliveries found for that route. Sadly
