Depends on the vehicle and it varies by country, but, generally speaking, for your average 5 axle articulated lorry (4x2 tractor, 3-axle trailer) the limit is 44 tons gross weight. Which I assume to be metric tons, because that is not specified in the documentation I have at work.
However, the EU reglementation allows for road trains (think of them as twins on steriods) up to 55 and 60 tonnes, but I haven't actually seen any such combination on our roads.

I found that in the EU 40 tons is max.

If you want to transport more you need a special permit.


Roadtrains are also starting to arrive (LVZ's named here) and they have a max weight of 60 tons and max length of 25,25 meter.

I have seen them before, here in the Netherlands and also Scandinavia uses them alot.
Am I developing at the moment?

Yeah, as I said, you mostly find them near industrial areas, where trucks are weighted before hitting the road.
