Transports are sent by well organized organisms which strive for optimum coaching and spatial simplicity. Like bisons in a herd, they trot straight to their objective. That speed and precision stands for the image of a black-brown beam perpendicular on the street. Brick cladding in a draughtboard pattern form the long basic silhouette and binder between garage and office as if they can never be separated from each other. It forms the head and tail of the building as one inextricably bound whole with a large logo as a billboard front on the head. Patios stand as light perforations centrally arranged by the long axle of offices with maximum view to the neighbouring parking forest of lorries. A long reception counter characterizes the internal organization of the transport as a train of assignments and distances.
