Seen from the air, CP's mammoth new Merchandise Services terminal in Winnipeg dwarfs the automobiles and trucks on the large parking lot, and no wonder! The terminal, built at a cost of $1,450,000 can load or unload at one time 33 large highway, 33 local pick-up-and-delivery trucks, and 24 freight or express cars. Built-in mechanism in the terminal speeds parcels on their way at the rate of 180 feet per minute while safety features prevent loss, damage and misdelivery of parcels.
