Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

The Crane Fruehauf Speedliner is a fairly new design that makes extensive use of aluminium, particularly for the profiled front header section with its neat recesses for curtain poles and ratchets.

Foldout front top corners give extra weather protection and all steel parts are either galvanised, zincplated or stainless. Other notable features are the slim roof rails,double-thickness curtains with protective wear strip, and the simple sliding pillar design.

A 4.2m Speedliner Light weighs under 6.4 tonnes; a 438m Max version offers 106m3 of load volume. The judges awarded high marks for innovation and payload/capacity potential, commending the Speedliner as a high-quality c-urtainsider with many admirable features.

Tidd Trailer's StreamLiner is another well-proven dry freighter with a smooth, eye-catching exterior that gives blue-chip clients like Argos, Booker and Walkers Snack Foods fuel savings with image-enhancement.

Central to the design is its one-piece GRP roof and integral radiussed cant rails, all colour impregnated and with continuously bonded front and sidewalls. This sealing method cuts out the leaks sometimes associated with bolts or rivets.

The StreamLiner is available as a singledeck straight-frame or twin-decker with fixed or moving floors, It earned high marks for build quality; structural strength and innovation: the judges were also impressed by its load restraint system and R&B tail-lift installation.

Wilson Double-Deck's innovative Flexdeck with dynamic second floor will interest manufacturers or groupage firms who need lots of taller floor space with good side access. It can be supplied as a straight Floor movement is controlled via a single ram and cable system; the aluminium floor can be locked in place at 150mm intervals, At 102 tonnes the Flexdeck is heavier than your average trailer but its two decks can take up to 42 metric or 53 Euro pallets. Users can benefit from maximum each-way productivity and lower distribution costs.
