LATEST of the Liverpool traffic pools La is the Imported Green Fruit Cartage Pool, which has been formed by the Liverpool Cart and Motor Owners' Association in co-operation with the Liverpool Fruit Brokers' Association and the Fruit Importers' Association (Liverpool), Ltd.

Other local cartage pools in Liverpool are as follow:—Heavy meat; bacon and hams; butter, cheese and eggs; canned meat and wool. Each pool is operated separately, exercising threugh its committee of management autonomous powers, without regard to the others. The only liaison is through Mr. Allen Walter, the secretary of the Cart and Motor Owners' Association, who serves them all. Regular carriers of the particular commodities agree to pool their resources for cartage purposes and to convey them ex quay in exact proportion to their handlings during the pre-war year.

Each pool has its own banking account, from which carriers' accounts are settled, less a small deduction for management expenses. One of the chief advantages of the pool system of working, which has been operated so successfully in the Liverpool area, is that specialist carriers are able to preserve the identity of their own businesses and there is the assurance of the return to each member of his goodwill after the war. The committee of management of the Imported Green Fruit Cartage Pool is composed of Messrs, H. Parker, Albert Revell and S. Smithard.
