I don't think the milk car was designed to put the milk cans on the belt as the mechanism does not have enough reach to place the cans on the belt. I raised the track , Fastrack, slightly and the cans get placed on the edge of the platform. It's a little crazy to watch, but with each ejected can, the row is pushed forward, one can at a time, and they stay on the platforms edge.
That is because the item you have pictured is only a loading platform it was not designed for unloading. The k-line unloading area was just a flat platform with a railing that was placed on the other side of the track.
Here's a video of K-line's Milk Depot on my semi-permanent layout. The fact that one can make it to the belt is a rare occurrence. As NelsonW mentions above, this accessory is meant to load the milk car.
