THURSDAY, APRIL T, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE nr» Blythevill* Warehouse, n«w wing in foreground . . . Fork lifts like thii one handle 41 Cons a day . . . Wa.rekou.sing Grows As Business in City Air conditioning units, beer, batteries, cereals, beans, bagging, seed, soap starch, synthetic rubber, insecticides ... Such runs the list of goods handled by a little-known, but fast-growing Blytheville industry — the Blytheville Warehouse. Blytheville declared an in-transit point on various items. CRACKING THROUGH the verbal barrier of transportation, this apparently is a means of getting certain rail freight service on specific products, which normally wouldn't be romed through the cily. That is, a manufacturer may store in Blytheville a product which may be en route from Indiana to Texas nnd normally wouldn't pass through this city. In Its more expeditious routing. There's no extra charge for getting it here ... if the ICC dictates. Why storage? It's simply that many products are seasonal. Even those which are needed in winter as much as summer — refrigerators, for instance — set! better in warm months. • • « IN' ORDER to keep the factory producing on an even keel year around, the manufacturer picks out key points for storage along the way. Thus, they may be moved quickly into the actual market area when the time comes. During 1954, the warehouse handled an average of 41.5 tons each working day. Tills year, it should become easily a 400-car shipper, putting it more or less in the same league with the compresses and Swift's plant. It is a locally-owned corporation with 12 stockholders. Ray Hall Is president; Kendall Berry, vice- president, nnd John W. Caudill, secretary-treasurer. J. G. Trieschmann is office manager and, according to Oettle, "does all the work."
