Skidloads And Conveyors
"When an enemy port fell nearly intact, every T.C. [Transportation Corps] shortcut came into play. Big crates were skidded behind tractors; boxes were rolled over conveyors. Everything was unloaded with planned hurry, for all ships were 'pre-stowed' to accelerate discharge, and every item was code-marked for delivery to Ordnance, Signal, QM [Quartermaster], or other army organizations."
