Motor Truck Transportation Cheaper for the Short Hauls of Wffl Develop and Serre Large Proportion of the Province of Alberta Witfc Good, Put Service (By tht Twck Co., Ltd.) Within the past few years transportation o! freight, express mid pnssetiger by auto- mobile trucks has grown enormously. Experience slrows this method of to be more economical and service- able and by far a faster method of transports fiat for short hauls than the railroad. Motor truck transportation is now in permanent use in mnny of the leading commercial centers of country. in the United States of America. In nil cases where the transportation com- pany has been properly organized and managed it has provided nn economical and faster ser- vice for the v.'holesalcr, retailer, manufacturer, and farmer, and has been of vital importance iri developing the districts in which it This kind of transportation is not a new thing, but it is somewhat new to the motor world. All commodities or goods that arc ship- ped have to be hauled some given distance to the railroad, and then hauled from the railroad. These hauls have been made by horses arid'wagons. Motortrucks has'e proven themselves capable of hauling these goods hot only to the railroad point, bul for short distance hauls, direct lo the point of saving the extra handling charges of delivering the goods or and quicker to their destination.

Had u. heen necessary to Itaul this number of animals by railroad cars, or approximate- ly 250" trainlonds of 21 cars each, would have been required. The to- lal road mfleafe representwl in the haulage of this livestock hy trucks including the return trips, 13 estimated ut no less than 110 miles. This livestock was liaul- ed by ovming their trucks, ana by Gl truck companies operat- ing over scheduled lines through- out tbo state. 'Return LNdl they lost several pounds in weight apiece.- In some instances they were so hot anu> tired that they had to be kept at least a day at the expense of the packer befbro they were cool enough {o slaughter. Then trucks and trailers were tried in the work, principally as ail experiment- Five ton trucks wltn huge iloublo decked bodies, carry- Ing as many as 40 hogs on two lei-, els Instead of one were employed, as well as large eight-ton trailers, hauled by motor tractors. The quick delivery, the saving of the- weight lost ty the driving on. the hoof, and the directness of the de- livery resulted in saving of 43 cents for every hog moved by trucks as compared with the rail method. As hogs are moved across the. Mississippi river, each hog slaughtering day, the motor trucks (bus save 5130.00 cacS day per truck. The Transportation Company has its trucks, and trailers cleaned that it can handle certain commod- ities on its return trip, therefore making a protitablo trip both ways. This is one reason why the Truck Transportation Compauies can op-1 erale cheaper, ejid morn profitably than ilia individual or small com- panies not running'on a regular schedule.

As Iho road htulage increased so rapidly that In mauy instances the stockyards managements wore entirely unpre- pa'td for the great number of trucks which -would Una up at the unloading chutes. On the busy days as high as 500 or COO vehicles jrtng their loads to several of the Etochyard gates. Several years ago tine number of ifulmals brought In by means of trucks was so small compared to the number at present handled in this manner that the oid simple unloading chutes .were sufficient. But with the present have become entirely inadequate, and the entire unloading scheme has to he revamped. Perhaps the best examplo of these changes may be seen at the Omaha stockyards, where thcro has beer. Introduced a. special platform at which three Irucks may discharge their antmala of the loads of the different ve- hicles' mixed. In this work all sorts of vehiclCH hz.Tt' been used, from the small roadster, with Just enough room In the rear for one or two calves, and the- small two wheeled trailer, cap- able of holding one cow when haul- ed behind the ordinary passenger" car, to the large two and three-ton (racks which make a specialty of hauling livestock as a business. These large trucks haul as many p.3 eight cattle, 30 calves, 30 sheep or 30 hogs to the load, and, pro- vided the country roads permit of the use of such trucks the year round, it -i- more economical to ship In .large numbers than in loads of one or two animals. The converted, passenger cars and the small trailers 'have been used by the owners of small farms, but even they are 'now seeing tho wig- dom of having their animals haul- ed by Hpeclallsts In the work. The tendency Is toward the use of the larger Innlead of the smaller trucks, and there are many com- panies, adme with special double- bodies for hogs, which do nothing else .but haul livestock as a buslmH. Pound! of Pork and Sheep Are Saved The work may lie rilvlderl Into two classifications. The first and raoet Important Is the haulage from Hie farm within a radius of from 50 to 60 miles of the stockyards direct to those yards where the livestock 1] either slaughtered or shipped farther east.
