Modern Marvels: Truck Stops

To keep the nation's many billion tons of highway-bound freight constantly moving, the men and women who haul these goods need to be kept comfortable, fed, and well rested.

In this eye-opening documentary, discover how today's truck stops, serving millions of truckers national wide, are now bigger and better than ever. Journey to Iowa and tour the world's largest truck stop, the Iowa 80, which offers fuel, food, parking, private showers, a movie theater, a dentist's office, and even a barbershop. Watch how massive 18-wheelers power up their elaborate living quarters by plugging into truck stop utilities, and find out how 20,000-gallon underground diesel storage tanks are installed. Finally, take a look at the future of trucks stops, including how the industry is preparing for the imminent use of biodiesel.

Big rigs need big services and Modern Marvels goes behind the scenes for a look at the rarely seen world of Truck Stops.
