but wouldn't it be nice, if the power would come through the connection with a constructur, assembler, storage container etc.?
this would force you to keep the belts short.
I really like the truck station and the idea of transport a huge amount of items from one place to another. but there is not really need to use them.
When a belt would cost power, then you think twice if you build a spaghetti of belts through the map from all nodes to you massive factory.
