@Arnook I have noticed - the flat racks are missing hooks for the straps to clip to.

Nice set though and I can't wait to see what is next!

@JUseeTV can correct me if i'm wrong, but I believe that the strap ends have those angled hooks that automatically "lock" on the edge of the platform once the strap is tightened (like on regular trailers). Therefore the solution that we see on the wood cargo is accurate.
For the chains, there are regular hooks, as visible on the screens

As for future updates, the 40ft tanks will come at some point for sure.
Other options are still to be considered, we will have to discuss those together with Julian.

Nothing to add there, hooks are angled and lock on the edge of the platform.

Those "containers" / swapbodies can be loaded both on trucks and trains via twistlocks and are about as long as standard trailers, they're used by a few companies but not as common as regular boxes

We've already discussed those options with @JUseeTV and so far they're not on the to-do list

Sounds really bad because this is a very popular solution for South / North travels that can't be possible to be done in less than 10h by Road. Many Italian and Alps border companies use this also to pass Alps Mountain. Same for Spain companies for passing Pyrenean Mountain.

They're also many variants of this, Dry 45ft, Curtainsider and even Reefer unit build by some very famous company like Chereau or Lamberet.

Sounds weird to read that since you build Flatrack who's definitely not a very popular solution in the world of the transport, they're mainly used for Maritime Port transfer between 2 platforms. For the rest it's a very expensive solution and not so flexible since a Flatbed trailer can do the same.

Only my opinion, keep on the great job on this pack, it's magnifiscient 🙂
