How big a truck?
Generally, one buys a given number of bd-ft.
A 40' semi 8'W by 6'H would be 72x8x40 ~ 23000 bd-ft
If'en you're talking framing dimensioned lumber, that would equate to
roughly 72/1.5 x 8x2 x 40/10 ~ 3000 sticks
While I suspect different mills may use different bundle sizes; I found
one that ships all framing lumber tuba-4,6,8 in bundles of N-wide and 21
high w/ bundles of 294, 189, 147, respectively. This works out for
bundles of roughly 49"W x 32"H.
I'd expect roughsawn to be roughly same size bundles w/, obviously,
fewer pieces per each. Roughly standard bundle sizes expedite shipping
so nobody is going to do something that is very far off the norm.
