Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

DAIRY CREST Transport has begun operational trials with nine tandem axle curtainsider semi-trailers fitted with Maxaret MDR anti-lock braking equipment.

The new trailers will be used for dry freight operations at 38 tonnes gcw and are the first in the Dairy Crest fleet to be fitted with anti-lock braking.

Previously the company has only specified load sensing on its trailers, although its 180 tractive units are all fitted with the Maxaret CR system. Wheel sensing on the Dairy Crest trailers is from the leading axle.

Dairy Crest's decision to fit the microprocessor controlled MDR system, which is made by Anti-Skid Controls of Coventry, has allowed it to achieve cornpatability between the anti-lock braking equipment fitted to its tractive units and trailers.

The trailers are built on Crane Fruehauf and Carrymaster chassis arid will shortly be joined by eight Maxaret equipped refrigerated van trailers.
