Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

AN 18,000sqft warehouse and depot for Norfolk-based Abels, the furniture removals specialist, was opened in Huntingdon last week.

It was officially opened by Department of Transport road freight head Martin Albu, who congratulated Abels on a fivefold growth in turnover in six years and a tripling of the number of employees since 1978.

Abels now has 60 vehicles and a staff of 180, and operates front its headquarters at Watton, a branch opened at St Albans a year ago, and the new depot. It also has operations in West Germany which rely on military contracts.

According to managing director Tony Abel, the Huntingdon base was selected because of its proximity to the national motorway network. It was developed from a transport operation taken over from Elphicks, a furniture retailer based in Huntingdon.
