TIR stands for Transportation International des Routiers or something vaguely similar (I don't know French ).What it means is that a TIR marked vehicle must not leave dedicated transit routes (in countries that have such routes) or unseal/open its loading doors between start and finish of the journey. In return TIR marked vehicles sometimes get preferential customs treatment as well as lower/no duty and toll charges.This was a lot more popular & useful in the days when they still had border checks inside the EU and lots of countries (like, all of the Eastern bloc) used to operate dedicated transit routes.

Whats a Limted /public company mean?Really, i've always wanted to know
In theory, a LTD company has it's liability 'limited' to the assets of the company. (That is until they decide to come after you.....which they do )A PLC is listed on a stock exchange, and public shareholders effectively 'own' the company.

Any idea what STG 1 , 2 or 3 means on heavy haulage trucks?
You would think after 9 yrs they would have lost interest
In case Farmer Giles hasnt had his answer yet.
STG stands for Special Type General Order with the 3 different classes and relates to abnormal loads and specialist types of vehicles .. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2003/1998/contents/made
