In July 1948...

"A scheme was now proceeding at the Temple Meads goods depot at Bristol, the largest covered accommodation of its type in this country, in which transship traffic, fed by slip conveyor to sorting pierheads, would be conveyed in unit loads to destination wagons by means of electric elevating platform trucks, working in conjunction with stillages."

"The railways, he said, had already provided specially constructed stillage trucks to cater for 1-ton loads of tin plate on stillages"

Nothing found, as yet, to determine who manufactured the trucks eventually purchased.

However the CM article goes on to say for maximum space utilisation stacking pallets vertically would require fork lift trucks, these evidently were not bought and freight was moved and stored mainly at ground level. This probably was proposed by Lansing Bagnall.

Agreed the same - listings combined.
