We get more gargo space with cabovers. Thats why they are used in Europe.
At least here in Germany the total length of a truck is limited.
If it is a truck with a trailer maximum length without a special permission is 18.75 meter.
If you have a semi trailer it's 16.50 meter.

Should be the same all over Europe.

That's why we use the shorter cabover trucks to get more usable cargo length.
