Hazardous Transport Vehicle TEMPLATES

Road Transport: trucks

The TEMPLATE for trucks is very similar to the railway car on in structure; the only difference, at this moment, is the addition of a GSM phone number to potentially reach the car/driver directly.

The main differences are in the Descriptor definitions (primarily types and load volumes, compare the railway car Descriptors).

Truck specific Descriptors

Since the descriptors for railway cars and trucks are largely the same, the different interpretations (value ranges and defaults) can be expressed as ALTERNATIVES in the descriptor definition:
