Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Operating a fleet of 33 vehicles, John Jempson and Son Ltd, Rye, Sussex, specializes in the delivery of cattle and poultry food. But as this is seasonal work and other uses have to be found for vehicles during the rest of the year, the company is reluctant to operate straight tippers and up till now foodstuff has been carried in bags. This difficulty is now being obviated with the use of a swapbody bulk delivery outfit, the first of a new type supplied by the Ashford depot of J. H. Sparshatt and Sons Ltd.

Mounted on a Scammell Routeman Mark II 17ft wheelbase tipper chassis of 24 tons is a Tamplin swap-body system, comprising a bulk tipper which is interchangeable with a flat platform. Loads of 14 tons can be carried by the tipper which, when not needed for foodstuff work, is demounted and replaced by a full-length platform for Jempson's general haulage.
