The trucks that deliver these long containers do not need 40 + 40 to pull out from under it. They roll off half way then tip the rails of the roll off up steep and it rolls off the rest of the way. Some even articulate way under the bed and they can off load in even less space while jack knifed. Most drives I have had deliver are very adept at stabbing these containers in right where you need them.
