I was wondering is it possible Boeing could offer the largest twin freighter in the world B777-300F? I know there has to be few adjustments to make but what do you think about it? Your comments are appreciate.

Look like we had the same ideal. But here's the problem, this aircraft could hurt 747F sale and as stated before, it could only be use as a package freighter.
As Stitch said, they could offer it, but I don't see the benefit. In order to sell it, they would need to develop it and I believe that it would be such a small niche market, the only think that would end up happening is that it would take away sales from other lines.
Boeing offers the 747-8F, 777F, 747-400 conversion, along with conversions for the smaller planes. Also, I would imagine that most companies that want to carry a load as large as the 777-300, they already have 747Fs of some type and they also really like having the main nose door so they can put VERY large stuff in them.
One way I could see them come up with the 777-300 (highly unlikely) is by the US Air Force demanding something larger then the 777-200, but smaller then the 747 for their new tanker.
Of course, I am not directly involved in the aviation business anymore, so these are just my opinions.
Why sit at home and do nothing when you can travel the world.

I could imagine they already think about that very seriously.Some days ago i mentioned such a airplane in another discussion here as a possible new version of the B777.
It makes perfect sense as it could operate very economically with lots and lots of light parcels in it.And this market is completely seperated from the B748F-market, so there won´t be that much competion or overlapping.
