Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

P&O FERRYMASTERS has established a new commercial base in Poland to take advantage of the explosion in freight transport across Eastern Europe, The office in Chorzow, near Katowice, will handle 1,000 full trailer loads (FTL) in 2008, rising to 5,000 by 2010.

Katowice sits in the centre of a major steel production area, close to a new railway hub and 20km from Poland's largest inland port. Herman Bream, P&O Ferrymaster's freight management division director, says: "Strategically, Poland is very important and we expect Katowice to become an important hub in our future rail strategy. It is key to the new emerging markets of the Ukraine, Bulgaria and Turkey."

P&O is targeting steel transport in particular as a key business growth area in the region, having invested in 200 new coil carriers— which gives it the largest coilcarrying fleet in mainland Europe.
