Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

ALL BUT TWO manufacturers are co-operating with the Road Haulage Association in a new survey of operators' needs for 38-tonne tractive units.

Only Foden and Renault Truck Industries have declined to support the survey, which will be undertaken by CV Marketing Support, and will look at the needs of 200 hire or reward and 100 own account firms.

Foden considers that its policy of custom building lor ries would make its participation unnecessary, but no specific reason is known for Renault's decision.

The other 11 companies selling 38-tonners on the British market are to fund the survey, the second which the RHA has conducted in this market sector, and which follows two others on the tipper market and after-sales service.

CV's researchers will not necessarily approach the same companies as it did in its earlier research of the 38-tonne

market, but RHA technical manager Mike Kneen told CM he anticipated that there would be sonic overlap_

The earlier survey was conducted before 38-tonners were legalised in May 1983, and this survey is expected to be based on operators' experiences.

The RHA has still to decide when it will publish details of the survey, but Mr Kneen said it was likely to be ready in about three months, and soon after at the annual conference in Portugal.
