A lorry is a large flatbed truck, covered or open, for the transport of goods. The word was used for certain types of freight that carried out rail cars long before vehicles were invented, and this was around the beginning of the 19th century. Some dictionaries suggest that this is due to the English dialectal word “lurry”, which means pulling, dragging or loading – and that it has been around since 1571 !.
