APA has a document discussing "caster" loading.  It may not be exactly what
you are looking for, but it may lead you in the right direction.

Subject: Floor Loading on Plywood


Hi all,

I am involved in a job where motorized concrete buggies and scissor lifts
have to operate.  The
existing steel floor plate is not strong enough to resist the concentrated
loads without permanent
deformation.  The contractor wants to use plywood sheets (4' x 8') end to
end over the floor to move
the equipment.

Does anyone know of any design information on the behaviour of plywood
sheets under point loads?

thx,
