They could be ideal

In the right circumstances they could be ideal - and economically viable. Delivering bulk goods to distant places with rubbish infrastructure e.g. the arctic, amazonia, large deserts and ooh, how about Siberia? Wind conditions will limit their use, but surely they'd be more efficient and flexible than running 40-ton lorries across ice-covered lakes, and then being cut off in the summer.
