TRIAL WHEAT SHIPMENT
BULK DISCHARGE PROBLEM
Arrangements for the handling of a trial cargo of bulk wheat expected to arrive in Auckland from Canada were referred to at a meeting of the Auckland Harbour Board yesterday afternoon.
Authority was given to 'he superintendent and engineer, Mr. D. Holderness, to construct such appliances as would enable the delivery of wheat in bulk and in bags to be carried out efficiently. It was decided that the question of charges be considered at a later date.
As • Auckland wharves are not equipped with suction equipment and silos for holding bulk wheat, the superintendent and engineer has been carrying out experiments with grabs to discharge, bulk grain into a large wooden tank oh a motor truck. /
