When you see a box and a cone, you have de-attached the trailer, and as it is invisible, there has to be an box and cones to find it again.
The cone shows you where to reverse to so you can attach it again. You can also attach the trailer in trailer manager.
Basic, you should never de-attach a "NO Trailer". While it is de-attached, the game don't know which cargo to haul, while it don't know what your "NO Trailer" can haul, which is also why there is no cargo to haul, when no trailer it attached.

Yes, it is a wooden box and cone, because you are about to buy an invisible trailer.
To see that (the invisible trailer), while it is not attached to truck, there has to be something to see.
Else you will never find it where you had it de-attached. :-)
Each box has a name that will tell you what this invisble trailer will haul from transport center.

i think i understand. Can you tell me the process to just have a truck without the trailer? sorry for being dumb eg like just the left side of your sig pic, but without the draw trailer

Double post merged.

omg.... ignore me. Im so stupid. I didnt spot you need to add the cargo box in the truck modifier. (i was just in the trailer section). Im all sorted now. sorry to be a pain!

nice mod btw. just what ive been looking for.

@Flemming V

As i compare the lengths of the container boxes, I have notices something - the 1+1, short 1+2 and short 2+2 trailers are around 600mm longer than the 6x and 8x rigid body. At some stage (Not urgent) would it be possible to harmonise the boxes of the truck chassis and trailer for the containers with the long 1+2, 1+3, long 2+2 and the 2+3 being unchanged with regards to their length. then maybe at some stage with the containers possibly a new template for them so we can have BIC codes on the 2 containers, currently they share the back doors so would have the same BIC number on the back doors along with the same volumetric data.

or are these meant to be more like intermodal swap bodies rather than oceanic sea containers???

Also, the containers are missing the twist locks off the chassis of the trailers and the truck, again not urgent but it would be nice to at some stage have them added. (they've been missing since version 1.1)
