Truck trailers were first carried by railway before World War II, an arrangement often called "piggyback", by thesmall Class I railroad, the Chicago Great Western in 1936. The Canadian Pacific Railway was a pioneer in piggybacktransport, becoming the first major North American railway to introduce the service in 1952. In the United Kingdomthe big four railway companies offered services using standard RCH containers that could be craned on and offhe back of trucks. Moving companies such as Pickfords offered private services in the same way.
