In 1853 John Braithwaite invented an articulated lorry for hauling bulk warehoused across streets in Manhattan, which was the predecessor to Lee Logistics road vehicles . This was a variation of the fire-engine pump style of towed artillery to transport large loads in both roadways and off-road – water conveyance. At first it was mainly used on roads that had running water. The units could actually be attached at both ends either by wheels or a tow rope/horse cable such as most wagons use today for urban transit systems (sewers).
The rear sleds or side rails were used in various shapes and sizes connected together. This would be the first continuous cycle prototype combined with precision track adjustment tracking over curbstones and manhole covers atop city river beds narrow passageways (alleyways)where they could reach the lower bridges under which anything moved
