Swedish: led- (ledtruck, ledstaplare)

ledtruck and ledstaplare refer to certain kinds of forklifts used in warehouses.

I know that truck means "forklift" (among other things, but that's pretty clearly what it means here), and that staplare means "stacker".

But what information is the led- part contributing?

led- has many disparate meanings: a joint (as in an articulated vehicle, like a trailer truck), or a pathway, or something to do with leading/leadership, etc.

Which of them is at work here?

Tak for jeres tid,
