Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Tyburn Road Tank Services, part of the Powell Duffryn Group, has placed an order with the Svigal Company at Terrenoire, near Lyon, France, worth £20,000 for three liquid petroleum gas tanks for rigid vehicles.

The first of the vehicles—which are to be used for metered deliveries for Mobil Oil throughout Britain—was formally handed over to Mobil last month. The others will be delivered shortly.

The terms of the Mobil order stipulated that the first of the vehicles should be in service by June this year, said Mr Ken Loosley, head of Tybum's technical research and development department based at Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire. "Because of the nature of the vessels we were faced with a nearimpossible delivery situation which led to inquiries being made in Britain, Eire, the USA and France where Sovigal assured delivery of the tanks on time.

The first tank is mounted on a Ford D900 chassis, and has a carrying capacity of 6.25 tons. The other two will be mounted on AEC Mercury rigid vehicles and have a carrying capacity of 7.75 tons.
