The Australian Landing Craft ALC40 was devised in 1943 by cutting the ends off two ALC20's and welding them together. They were manufactured at the Ford Motor Company factory at Corio Bay, Geelong, Victoria. They were also assembled at Boggy Creek at Pinkenba in Brisbane.

In 1942 there were three models of Australian Landing Craft (ALCs). The suffix after the ALC denoted their load capacity. So an ALC40 was a 40 ton capacity Landing Craft. Two extra models were introduced in 1944.
