A Load of Powdered Eggs?

ACME News photograph, dated June 12, 1943

A large crane loads an amphibious DUKW (aka "Duck") with boxes of rations and other invasion gear in preparation for an assault somewhere in the Pacific. The versatile DUKW was able to take on cargo offshore, move toward the beach under its own power, and then drive directly up onto a beach to unload.
