Here is the text about the Transport Mission:

M03 – Transport – The distance a discarded material may need to travel is an important part of the equation when deciding what to do with that material. ● Basic Mission Description: Load the all-Yellow Material Bin onto the Truck to be transported east/unloaded. ● Specific physical requirement, visible at the end of the match (score one or both):
Value: 50 The Truck supports all of the Yellow Bin’s weight.
Value: 60 The Yellow Bin is completely east of the Truck’s Guide.

UPDATE 14 - TRANSPORT 110 M03 Frequently Asked (10-12-15) The Transport Mission max score is indeed 110. This is the meaning you were supposed to take from “score one or both.” Think it through, and use high caution when throwing around the word “impossible” - especially in FIRST LEGO League.

In reply to emails that got sent to us about this mission: 
1) The rules do not specify the method for accomplishing Transport - "Yellow Bin is completely East of the Truck's Guide".  That is up to the team. But the update clearly states that you can get both sets of points and nothing is impossible. :-)

2) It also only says that the "Yellow Bin is completely east of the Truck's guide" as a scoring condition

>Just to be clear on #2, to get 110 points, the necessary condition is the bin is on the truck and the bin is east of the truck guide. It is not necessary for the entire truck (with the bin on it) to be east of the truck guide, right? The truck is allowed to straddle the end of the truck guide, right?
