Although I update this album frequently there are new COFC photos of some of the containers on CN Train 148 between Chicago and Toronto added. I chased the train on Sunday afternoon and was able to get some shots at a point called Scotch Block near Milton ON.

The MT ANNEX near my wife's workplace is closed and no more (or very few) North Queen Street can haulers. CP has closed it's OBICO yard and shifted all intermodal operations to Bolton.
My main local can hauler now is Musket Transport who run mostly Volvo tractors. There are still a variety of beat up Cartage company tractors for local deliveries to be seen.

Here is a Musket from Friday morning. A 20 foot dry box is loaded on an adjustable chassis.

Question.

Why do Canadians spell T-I-R-E, the American form instead of T-Y-R-E, the British form, and yet spell C-O-L-O-U-R, the British form, instead of C-O-L-O-R, the American form?

Jim.

I just looked it up on Wikipedia, if it has much credibility.  Evidently Canadian English borrows some spellings from American and British English.  Weird, you could spell a word one way and then walk across a bridge and correctly spell it another way.

No different than the American north and American south.  LOL!


BTW, according to Wikipedia (again credibility), the Aussies do the same thing.

Today, people are taught the American spelling of words. However, when I was in grade school in the late 1950's and early 1960's the British heritage was still thought to be important. We were members of the British Commonwealth and, until 1964, flew the Red Ensign as our national flag. We sang GOD SAVE THE QUEEN each morning and then Oh Canada. I was taught that Canadian English had evolved from The Queen's English. You are right - we never spelt tire as TYRE, we never spelt airplane as aeroplane and since we drove mostly American cars (Fords, Dodge, Pontiac etc) never called the Hood the bonnet or the trunk the boot.
Over time all the British influences in our culture have disappeared and Great Britain is just another country in the world.

**edit** To Remain On Topic

The US and Canada are both vestiges of England, however we became independent.  The US and Canada have much more in common, both culturally and otherwise than Canada and England have in common. 

Either way it seems that England is becoming more influenced by North American culture than the other way around.

That's a neat perspective, and good reference for modelbuilding purposes too. I found the trace of the ZIM container's recent travels interesting, I didn't haul a lot of them when I worked for J&F but sometimes we would get empties to bring to Canada as backhauls from eastern terminals. An 8' container was OK to haul on regular flatbed, just not a high cube!  :o

A new carrier has joined the local (southwest Mississauga) can hauler community.
Marex had a yard down here and they were eventually moved to Brampton several years after Travelers Transportation had bought them out.
That yard had sat vacant since then until sometime this (2013) summer when a small company with the logo MDS moved in. MDS are the initials for Maritime Delivery Service. They only have about 10 tractors.

This is an infrequent sighting; a Hapg-Lloyd 20 foot reefer container.

Musket, the trucking company, doesn't move many of these Hapg-Lloyd containers.
Note the tridem chassis and the Hapg-Lloyd power pack. It is still hard to shoot around all the snow drifts this year.

Great catch, Rob! Rare indeed. I am always curious about what commodoties ship in 20 foot reefers rather than 40 foot. They seem very common in Australia and New Zealand, extremely rare in the Americas, and less rare in Europe and Asia. I caught my first HL 22R1 recently as well  8)

MSC Reefer
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/bluejaysfan/Intermodal%20Pictures/zac-tranz3-18-14_zpsdf0d08c3.jpg~original)

The carrier is Zac-Tranz who were based in Montreal. They have apparently bought out a Toronto company Air-Oceanland.
The container is a reefer but it has been leased from Seacube. They apparently own the CRLU reporting marks which was Carlisle Leasing.
It's always hard to keep track of all the players in the intermodal game; locally, nationally and internationally.

Caught this one recently and did a trace:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/bluejaysfan/Intermodal%20Pictures/TMTNYKcontainer_zpsc78853e8.jpg~original)

March 7 given to NYK in Manilla Phillipines.
March 9 loaded on feeder vessel LINDAVIA
to Kaoshiung Taiwan arriving march 11
March 19 loaded on ZIM ANTWERP to Vancouver.
Arrived in Vancouver March 31 and was unloaded April 1.
Transferred to CN April 2 and loaded on a train for Brampton which left on April 3.
It arrived at CN B.I.T. April 7.
It was unloaded April 8 and released for local delivery April 9.
It wasn't returned until April 17 and on April 23 was being moved back to CN B.I.T. when I shot it.

I'm not certain what the cargo from Manilla to Toronto would have been.

I speculate that it is P&W Transport - MTMX Logistics from Oakville (the pics were taken in Oakville) coming in from New Jersey.
All those containers probably arrived by road from Port Elizabeth. The local delivery is handled by drayage companies that are arranged by the Freight Forwarder or clearing Customs Broker.
Sorry, no, can't read the number.

I'm going to take a guess here.The "too much sun" container is a CPSU judging by the marking on the front of the container.

So yes,it's a fallen flag since CP Ship was bought by Hapag LLoyd..

nice shots rob ;)
most of the canadian intermodal activity uses tri-axle chassis; it appears to be the standard. Whereas, here in the US most drayage servies use only dual-axle.

I ve heard that the tri-axle chassis are more stable and easier to drive (i.e. favored over dual-axis especially in 20 ft. containers)  because the tri-axle distributes the weight of the can evenly?

It traveled to Vancouver on the Frankfurt Express and was sent to Brampton on CN.

The CAN HAULERS OF TORONTO went on strike:
Story:
BRAMPTON, Ont. — Truckers represented by the Container Trucking Association of Ontario (CTAO) have returned to work, after signing an “unprecedented” deal with the industry, the group announced.
The deal was signed at 6:30 p.m. yesterday, following a nine-day strike.
The CTAO said the new deal “includes a fair percentage increase in rates for the first time in over a decade and is unprecedented in the North American container trucking industry.”
The agreement also addresses wait times at terminals, the group claims.
“Both parties came together in good faith and we thank the CEOs who have signed today, we applaud your leadership, courage and cooperation,” said Patrick Rhodin, CTAO president.

Hi Rob!

Long time lurker of this forum, quite happy to say the least and is hoping to respond to these posts.

For Maersk boxes, they are usually stores in CN MISC (Mississauga Intermodal Service not-sure-what-c-stands-for) and Seaport(frequently place for carriers to p/u Maersk containers). I don't know if Musket has taken up Maersk as another SSL to work with, they often only transport MSC containers since they are in contract with MSC. Lately I have been seeing CN fleets moving them from CN MISC to CN Brampton, most likely to be shipped to other terminals where empty Maersk containers are low in supply.

If you don't mind, I might be able to take some photos in the Mississauga region and post them here as well. I seen some rare containers, old and relatively new in the area.

Keep on posting these pictures :D

CN MISC is at Bramalea Rd and 407. You can park across the street or at nearby strip buildings couple blocks from the entrance to take photos. No trains to be seen outside.

You can't go inside CP Vaughan but you could park outwards by Hwy. 50 and Rutherford. There's usually a lot of intermodal trucks running on those two roads I mentioned plus there's a truck stop there. If you are lucky, you could take some photos of the CP train outside the perimeter.

I see that guy fairly frequently - the last time he was having coffee at the same Tims as myself. I think he must own that A-train: everyone else has moved to b-trains. (And it makes the whole unit a "period piece.")

I have observed that much of other trucking companies have transitioned to B-trains as well. Obviously, B-trains are better for hauling 20's and I even seen a seaport truck hauling 3 20's (single lead B-train 20' and double 20' 8-pin chassis).

However, there are some noticeable A-trains around the area. Usually a Mack sleeper working for Seatainer, with it's axle forward, pulls A-train 20's.

Recently, there's been a new company that's rather expanding quite fast much like Andy Transport called Passport Trucking which mainly hauls B-train 20's. That and Cooney Transport (which seems to be relatively new in our area), Best Choice, does B-trains as well.

Yeah it's rare to see A-trains nowadays. B-trains are simply easier and better.

Lots of foreign trucks and companies that I don't see often or at all. That ZIM box has me intrigued. Looks like it's used for residential purposes. Those MSCs boxes are probably beating the cut-off and making to the vessel before it departs.

The few well known ones like Robert and Clarke are a common sight to be seen around here. I usually see Roberts pulling double 53's or single 53' trailers. I do wonder where the OCEANEX cans go to though. I think occasionally I do see them in CN and CP terminals.

It looks like CN has got some outside carriers to pull its cans. I know some like Lotus that does that too.

Hwy 50 has lots of can action because of CP vaughn. There are other container yards as well. Hey Zeprome there's a container yard off hwy 50 and albion vaughn rd across from the Toyota dealer. Is that part of CP vaughn or is it an independent terminal? CN Brampton has a tone of action as well off Steeles and Airport rd.

I do not know if it allows more weight but I do know that it's a lot more stable (3 vs 2 fifth wheels). Generally, an additional axle (triaxle vs tandem) allows for more weight. Also the design of the chassis (straight neck vs goose neck) probably allows for more weight. Also, IIRC, law dictates the heaviest container should be the one closest to the cab.

That intersection you mentioned must be where Best Choice is. For most northern companies (Musket vs Best Choice location wise), usually that's where MSC cans go but I now usually see 20's MSC for CN MISC. Best Choice is mainly composed of Chinese employees and is independent but partnered with MSC. They also have You will often see BCs and Musket shuttling MSC boxes to CN BIT. Their 8 pin chassises (Musket has 8/12? Pins + 45' stretch chassis) are frequently used chassis you would often see.

Musket's yard on Royal Windsor Drive came when they took over Melburn Truck Lines. Melburn had been produce haulers and got into hauling containers from the New York City and Philadelphia area piers. Best Choice started as an airport cartage company. They expanded into local cartage for containers. Adams Cartage was much the same. They had their yards in Malton, off Torbram Road. CP Vaughn was originally opened as a domestic container terminal. CP closed the Obico terminal a few years ago and transferred the overseas containers to Vaughn as well.
CN is planning on closing B.I.T. and opening a new terminal near Milton, west of Bronte Road (old Hwy 25) but the local residents are fighting the move. B.I.T. is choked with trains and containers. CN needs more space.


That intersection you mentioned must be where Best Choice is.

I was in the B.I.T. the day it opened. 1979 or 80, don't remember exactly which.
 It was before the days of domestic cans, everything in and out of there was piggyback trailers.

I got some more but the other photos are terribly taken as in being obstructed by other trucks and that I "chopped" some of them. My personal favorite of the bunch I posted is the double Evergreen B-trains.

It's a shame that there's rarely any A-trains nowadays.

The Challenger trucks with the B-trains, there were actually two parked side by side. I wanted to take a photo of the twins but I was afraid to ask.

I actually want to modify each post and provide details for each photos, their specific carriers as well, just like what you did Rob. But it's a hassle because there's so many of these trucks and their carriers :)

Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on March 12, 2016, 02:16:57 PM
Yes, you are correct.

Musket chassis are very versatile. I really like their equipment and can really make hauling containers profitable. The 12 pin chassis with ability to extend from 40 to 45(some from goose neck 20) with a genset makes is a very useful and profitable equipment.

Yup, I saw Jamie's post about chassis. But those chassis are boring and not as versatile. Nowadays, to get the best return from a trip to the terminal is to use extendable chassis with 3 axles. Returning to yard empty handed because of size requirement sucks.

The thing about Challengers is that they use a mix brand of flexi-van, max atlas and hyundais.

As for the size, I guess they specialize each haul with either a 40' or duo 20's. No Extendables as of yet but a rather welcoming sight in our region. It's just that much of the local fleets here aren't as "fresh" looking compared to Challengers.

Correct. I was about to answer Rob's question.

Looks like these carriers are shunting some empty boxes around. Not surprising to see if they are being returned to Hunts Refrigeration.

Or they are using them for exporting dry shipment since there might be a lack of 20RF units else where.

I will be keeping an eye for any MDS fleet you catch Rob. Be on a look out for a Volvo with a different hood color from the body because I know that driver since I was very young.  8)

Jim.

Dong-Fang is a shipping company that lease boxes, much the same like Triton, TEX, TAL, CARU, etc.

I think they are much more active in Asia-waters since they are based in Hong Kong.

Also Rob, the second photo featuring a Freightliner Columbia pulling a TAL-lease box is actually Ace Group. Just a clarification.

An End of the Month Update for May 2016

Air & Oceanland Century daycab with a Maersk reefer.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Trucks/IMG_1105%202_zpsjmcfh1ce.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Trucks/IMG_1105%202_zpsjmcfh1ce.jpg.html)

A Very sharp W900 that I think was from Quebec. I can't actually read the carrier name and it isn't one of the twenty-odd carriers regularly seen.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Trucks/IMG_1179%202_zpsb99c8hnl.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Trucks/IMG_1179%202_zpsb99c8hnl.jpg.html)

The short 20 footer chassis behind this Freightliner daycab must be older. A closed tandem fixed length. Modern chassis are usually tridem extendibles.
This is almost like the lead trailer on an old A Trian. Maybe the broker who is leased to Carterm owns the chassis too.

The Air & Oceanland Columbia seems to come from the IDEAL fleet  ( http://www.ideal.qc.ca/en/transport.php ) a Québec
City and Montreal transport and warehousing outfit. It's surprising to see that truck in a second life in the Greater Toronto
region, it came there probably through Ryder used truck auction the IDEAL fleet being leased through Ryder.

I like to further add onto what R. Buron said, the third truck featuring an International day cab that's working for Seaport is likely from Cooney Transport.

I apparently googled for Cooney Transport and found the picture in HanksTruckForum.

Hmm, so familiar, I wonder what is HanksTruckForum?  ::)

The Columbia with the USAC can looks t be an ex Old Dominion tractor, would that be from the US then, imported into Canada as a resale or are they based in the GTA

I see lots of O-D trailers here but haven't found any tractors yet.

Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Rob Archer on June 02, 2016, 04:12:34 AM
I'd agree with the Cooney Transport heritage for the International.
Jim: I'm inclined to agree with Rene on the Columbia - I saw a newer Ideal running around here on Tuesday and the paint scheme looked similar.
That's not to say there aren't lots of used American tractors up here working on their second or third lives.
Thanks for the comments guys.

WCT....
This Cascadia was passing my Tim Hortons this morning. It was slowed and then stopped in traffic.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Trucks/IMG_0193%202_zpsdimqzdqd.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Trucks/IMG_0193%202_zpsdimqzdqd.jpg.html)

It was pulling a bare chassis. I saw some of the lettering and the slider holes caught my attention.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Trucks/IMG_0194%202_zpssxqzq2tc.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Trucks/IMG_0194%202_zpssxqzq2tc.jpg.html)

If you look at the first set of tires there are pin holes with stencilled notes.
The one closest to the tractor shows B Train Quebec
The next shows B Train Ontario.
I gather the chassis must be slid to different lengths in Ontario and Quebec to be legal.
This also must be the rear trailer in a B Train setup.

Hmmmm......... ??? ???
(oh, there will be more pictures of various can haulers posted soon)

That's a nice catch on that WCT. The lesser known of the GTA Intermodal carriers, WCT is a relatively small. I'm very surprised to see a FRESH truck with a GREAT looking SLIDER equipment. Of the many carriers, WCT remains a mystery to me, where it's located, how large it's fleet is, etc.

Here's some more details on the equipment: http://www.max-atlas.com/trailer/ccbr3240-3s-00/

A slider, unlike an extendable (there's a difference!), allows for more weight to be allowed on the road. One of the most noticeable users of the slider series is Musket Transport.

My dad thinks W.C.T. stands for World Cartage System. I did a search, WCT doesn't seem to have it's own website despite having a presence in the GTA.

And the June 2016 Update

No real order other than I took them in June:

The Proctor Freightliner had a container chassis and container when we saw him at the Great Lakes Truck Club meet.
(http://i1208.photobucket.com/albums/cc369/cdntrainphotog/Intermodal/ntrmodl-proctorcoe_zpsrqpwvabo.jpg) (http://s1208.photobucket.com/user/cdntrainphotog/media/Intermodal/ntrmodl-proctorcoe_zpsrqpwvabo.jpg.html)
This is one that should have an "A" train chassis set.

OCEANEX is a steamship company who serves Newfoundland from Halifax. I often see their containers on the Expressway train to Montreal but rarely see a truck from them. He must have picked up that shipment in the Hamilton area.

I couldn't read the carrier name on this Columbia. I thought it was a mismatched hood when the truck went past but after downloading the pic I saw this paintjob seemed planned.

I'm wondering if perhaps it could even be the lead trailer in a B-train, and the tridem slides past the rear and shows a pin for the second trailer? I may be way off on that, but you never know.

Nice catch on that really awesome Procters Cartage Freightliner. I think it's the same one that I caught in TruckWorld 2016. Your opinion about A-trains would definitely be well suited for this classic truck.

The blue Freightliner Columbia with the Maersk reefer and gen-set chassis is from Air and Oceanland. I don't think I ever seen that truck in Terminals before so I assume it only does long-distance hauls.

Oceanex usually hauls their own containers I seen 53' and 40' OCEANEX containers to CN Brampton. Definitely a rare sight.

That Ex-CN Columbia is 888, it must be a new carrier. I seen that truck couple times.

The second last picture of the Freightliner Columbia, I cannot recognize that carrier. I never seen that truck either but interestingly, it's quite decked out. Notice the additional marker lights on top of it's passenger door, the horn at the top of the truck, and additional flood lights at the front of the bumper.

I'm not sure which one you are talking about.

Is it this one?

(http://i1208.photobucket.com/albums/cc369/cdntrainphotog/Intermodal/ntrmodlmtmx_zpsda9xcxyu.jpg)

I believe you would be talking about this equipment: http://www.max-atlas.com/trailer/cc29-3s-00/

There's also this: http://www.max-atlas.com/trailer/ccbl29-3s-00/

It's a heavy duty slider chassis, assuming by it's name would mean it allows up to IIRC 52,000lbs payload for a 20ft, not sure what the GVM is. It can extend, some can be used for B-train leads and others without the 5th wheels, when extended, are used to distribute the weight of the container better.

St Germaine Transport with 2 20 footers on a step deck. I'd be willing to wager that SGT isn't getting paid much to haul these but it beats running empty. Then again, maybe they are rushing to get the cans  to and on the ship before it sails from Montreal.

Never heard of Vasco either and can confirm there's some new carriers. Should of taken some photos especially of that unknown carrier with the yellow Columbia 8)

MSC containers are often notorious for bad conditions, so it's probably being transported to Montreal for the ship or repairs there. Fact is, I observed that most containers that's transported on flat beds are MSCs.

I spotted Highland and/or MTMX (don't remember clearly) with the B-train (40' head chassis with 20' chassis tucked under the front chassis container), pretty much the same as taken from British Columbia Cans thread.

I haven't been able to take the chance to take a picture cuz those equipments never come close to my area but only on the major highways.

Rob, I have a feeling you might have a better chance of catching that B-train since your location is relatively close to P&W/MTMX and all the other local carriers in the area (Musket, MDS, etc) especially since that compound is hugely congested with CYs.

That remains an odd size ciontainer - it's hard to tell but it looks fairly old to me.

Interesting Rob, that 45' can on a 40' chassis, looks like they didn't even extend it or it is a B-train lead chassis? Cool but strange! You catch lots of them, I should really start to take more picture of them too, usually I let a lot of them go if they don't have "appeal" but they may to others??

We have quite a few 45' Maersk's make their way through here. Most of the time, they are in similar shape to the one you show. If you take a look at my thread, I know there is at least one picture of a Maersk 45' and it looks identical to this one.

Most commonly, we get 45' Evergreens and those are on a pretty consistent basis. Once in a while, 45' MSC, but that is usually pretty rare.

Jamie, I never seen a 45' for MSC. But if it exists in Baltimore then you are in luck!

Here's a 45' CMA I caught the other day.

Nice shots! Jamie, I've never seen a 45' MSC either -- are they leased containers? If they are in the MSC livery, I'd love to see a photo.

I may be completely mistaken. I thought I have seen a 45' MSC box in the yard at my previous company, but I just went back and didn't see any pictures. I know we had a 40' flatrack, but maybe I am making up the 45'. Sorry about that. lol

I'm just 99% certain that MSC does not have any 45HC, if any, in service... or at least in North America.

But that's alright, apologizing is only for Canadians. 8)

Very nice photos. I definitely recognize the blue Western Star, it's one of the more frequent sightings in the area where I work.

After much talk about B-trains 20s and 40, yesterday I saw Musket with a similar combination. 20 B-train head with 40' chassis. Was carrying 3 20s.

See if you can catch this. I'm hoping to catch one with that combination soon!  8)

Interesting catch with that MSC 40' Dry box on a reefer chassis.

Jaimie - that was a "Sunday Shuttle"
I saw them move a 20 foot ragtop container on a 40 foot reefer chassis the other day.
AND...today , and again I couldn't get the shot; a drayage carrier had a B train with a 20 foot lead that was empty and a 40 foot dry can on the back chassis. I just saw the dam* thing in the traffic and used some foul language about pictuires not taken.

This went past with the reefer loudly humming.
I traced it through the NYK system and foiund that it was being taken for loading.
Air & Oceanland is doing the move from Musket's CY . After loading it is being taken to CN for furtherance to Vancouver by rail. There it will be loaded on a ship and taken to Japan.

Great shots.  8)

That's a very lovely chassis the Air and Oceanland Cab is hauling there. Those are 12-pin heavy duties sliders, pretty much the best or king of all chassis, that is if you can afford it. Rare to see this chassis on the road. Most commonly seen with Musket fleets especially during weekend shuttles and long hauls to and from Montreal.

The ex-Wilson truck line Volvo's logo looks like it's from Worldwide Container Transport, also known as WCT.

The MTMX 8-pin chassis is often a frequent sight, quite possibly because it's flexible for carrying an extra 20', which is understandable since MTMX is pretty far from major central terminals.

I'm surprised to see a VNM 780 model, can't tell if they replaced the hood. Do they still produce VNM with large bunks? Or is that an awesome O/O that kept it's antique truck running well?

Kind of surprised to see Air and Oceanland hauling an NYK reefer with a tandem gen set. Reefers with goods inside are usually quite heavy, requiring tridem axles to fit hauling regulations on the road. I seen some exceptions from noticeable carriers like GZL trucking that frequently hauls Dole Reefer containers with tandem genset chassis.

Post by: Rob Archer on September 15, 2016, 04:26:20 AM
And, some more.........all taken in the past few days.

We'll start with the POTD from 9-14-16. This was a city broker from Clarke with a 53 foot domestic container. It is likely going to CN since it is on a CN chassis.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/POTD/IMG_1144%202_zpshk4ahjct.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/POTD/IMG_1144%202_zpshk4ahjct.jpg.html)

Then some INTERNATIONAL container haulers -
Uniworld Logistics with a 20 footer. It is a reefer can but doesn't look like it was on a reefer chassis.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Uniworld-9-13-16_zps2q6uqieq.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Uniworld-9-13-16_zps2q6uqieq.jpg.html)

Now here's one for ZeProme... On Route. I couldn't anything about them on line. I took this one Tuesday and then yesterday saw a Volvo daycab with an MT chassis. They must be one of the newer carriers.

And, finally, for this mini update a Freightliner from Carmel with an MY 20 foot chassis.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/carmel%209-14-16_zpshk7spjql.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/carmel%209-14-16_zpshk7spjql.jpg.html)
Flexi-van leaser? I would call this an older style of chassis since it is non adjustable and not a B Train type.
It looks well maintained - not all rusted.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on September 15, 2016, 08:59:15 AM
I don't know too much about On Route either. It's not a frequent sight, seems relatively small.

Now about the Carmel 20' Straight Neck Chassis, that one is extendable but cannot become a lead B-train. If you look closely between the Flexi-Van logo and the chassis#, you will see the slider pin sticking out. The reason why it has the option to extend is because it allows better stability on the road, but very rarely do I see carriers extend the straight neck 20' chassis.

And yes, that chassis model is one of the most earliest and oldest form of 20' chassis. Still in production, and it still uses the old rims, the dreaded 5 bolts or "star" pattern. Not sure what the proper name is.

RS Rush is a lovely sight. Most of their fleet is relatively new, truck and chassis, and they do have couple female drivers, very rare amongst the GTA intermodal carriers. The other carriers that do have female drivers are much larger like Challenger and Schneider.

I've been to Seatainer yard before. It's one of the biggest container yards mostly consisted of tons of terminated lease boxes all piled up. You can't mistaken it from afar, just north of CP Vaughan.

I'm not sure what the main differences are between Seatainer and Gusgo, but I assume it's similar to Challenger and Elgin. Couple other examples like WJS transport and Best Choice, Carmel and Carterm, etc. Both companies have their yards beside each other. Seatainer's CY handles mostly empty and termination boxes while I assume Gusgo CY's is normal day to day operations.

Here are some more from the southwest corner of Mississauga in September 2016.

I did see a T600 from On Route with an empty chassis. They must be dropping off at one of the local CY's - probably Musket's. There was a big lineup of trucks waiting to get into Musket's yard.

Two Freightliners from MTMX leaving the Petropass cardlock truck stop. Both were loaded with Hamburg Sud containers.

Post by: Zeprome on September 22, 2016, 04:57:19 PM
Honestly, I can't tell either. It's quite likely that it is a lead b-train though I have observed for this model that some of them are not equipped with fifth wheel nor some of them are extendables. It's slight modifications and frankly, I'm not surprised to see intermodal chassises with unique quirks that looks very second-handed/amateurishly manufactured. I seen a flatbed-gooseneck chassis like 48' long modified with chassis pins on the lower deck, only suitable for hauling 40's.

There's some even more antiques on the road. Ever seen a non-gooseneck 40' chassis? Some with 8-pins? Back then, I heard HCs were prohibited from loading onto this chassis because it would cause stability and height clearance concerns.

Hutch Transportation, looking very sharp as usual. Their equipments are very nice.

Stretching a little beyond Toronto - we are on Highway 403 in Hamilton; eastbound returning to Mississauga.
This can hauler was in the westbound lane heading towards Brantford.
Didn't catch a carrier name but an unusual tractor for hauling containers.

Then, we have Your Morning Zoom...a Columbia from I.W.D. being zoomed by an old International dump truck.

And finally - the paint job on this Volvo reminds me of a "store bought" lemon merangue pie. It is apparently from Rythem trucking. Zeprome...what can you tell us about this one?

That it's a VNL630 model.  8)

At first I thought it was an ex-Sunbury truck but it's missing the distinctive stripes.

That aside, I do not recognize this truck nor Rythem Trucking. Must be a small carrier. Interestingly, it identifies itself with the Container Trucking Association of Ontario(CTAO).

It's hauling a reefer box, not certain if it's getting power from the under-lying genset. Looks like a flexi-van lease chassis(the logo on the reefer gives it away). The chassis seems to be not extendable, has tridem axles which is perfect for hauling reefers.

Also Rob, I saw that Intl Lonestar Daycab at a CY before. I regret not taking a picture of that, was definitely a foreign company to me.

Post by: Zeprome on October 07, 2016, 10:29:37 PM
I don't think I've ever seen that old CN Mack on the roads.

ACLs are stored at Conforce 1, a division of Seaport. Conforce 1 is couple street blocks beside Musket. Conforce 1 stores mainly off-hire containers but also not exclusive to some MSCs.

Great to see some northern-located carriers reaching that far down south, good catches.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Rob Archer on October 09, 2016, 06:34:45 AM
How about some of the CANS for The Cans of Toronto?

Sometimes the picture ends up being mostly container.
Sometimes it's the container that catches my attention more than the tractor. One can only take so many pictires of Musket grey Volvos after all.

So, here are three:

BISU 4001487
This is a mystery right off the bat since I cannot find which company has BISU as reporting marks.
 (http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Trucks/bisu4001487_zpsmw3hgp3v.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Trucks/bisu4001487_zpsmw3hgp3v.jpg.html)
I thought it was "Blue Sky", a leasing company, until I entered the container number. That number came up as a 40 footer.
I double checked the picture and and the marks are BISU not BSIU.
hmmmm
I shot it since it was a 20 footer dry box riding a reefer chassis.

CSLU ( can't read the number)
This 40 footer drybox caught my eye since it looks new and clean. Most China Shipping cans I see are usually rusted and battered.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Trucks/china%20ship%2040_zpsz39q3te5.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Trucks/china%20ship%2040_zpsz39q3te5.jpg.html)

TGHU 7029003 - definitely a leaser. I was trying for the tractor; another small drayage company; and got the container and chassis.

Well Rob, you have such a great hot spot for taking Musket photos. However, I have yet to see a 40 plus 20 b-train chassis combination from you. 8)

I'm going to take a wild guess for the BISU. Perhaps Bermuda Container Shipping?

You ain't wrong about China Shipping. Most containers are very tattered.

The TGHU looks like it's for MSC. You can tell by the white chalk markings on the passenger side near the rear bottom of the container.

Post by: Zeprome on November 04, 2016, 04:46:35 PM
I haven't touched this thread in a long time. Should be posting a lot more in this thread since I do work in this industry...

International for Oakwood Transport just entering a CY.

(http://i.imgur.com/qHwVVHE.jpg)

Oakwood is a large carrier that usually hauls B-trains 20s and also cars. This truck caught my interest since it's rare to see this truck on the road. Oakwood has A LOT of sharp trucks in it's fleet.

Columbia for Sun Express Transport Inc.

(http://i.imgur.com/Ocqq0is.jpg)

I believe that this carrier primarily deals with Intermodals. Relatively small, it's most common and signature truck in it's fleet is the blue Columbia. I'm just surprised that this carrier has a relatively new-looking Max-Atlas chassis, which is uncommon IMO among small carriers.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Rob Archer on November 04, 2016, 05:44:12 PM
Well, I like your two additions to the thread.
Oakwood is based in Ingersoll Ontario.
I'm not sure if I've seen that Columbia before though.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on November 04, 2016, 07:31:42 PM
Columbia for Best Choice

(http://i.imgur.com/Mm9TMhJ.jpg)

Best Choice is a mid-sized Intermodal carrier and one of the carriers for storing MSCs. Much like Musket, BC has their own terminal located far north whereas Musket is due South. It's common to see them do weekend shuttles to and from CN BIT much the same like Musket.

FLD120 for Passport Trucking.

(http://i.imgur.com/OWuHBmm.jpg)

Passport Trucking frequently hauls double 20s. I don't think I ever seen them haul anything else other than 20s.

Columbia for Col-Bray Transportation Solutions

(http://i.imgur.com/mJBHP34.jpg)

I think this carrier has recently entered the stage. Not sure how big they are but they are based in Brantford, On. Seen them haul doubles before.

Western Star for Canada Drayage

(http://i.imgur.com/pDC4Le9.jpg)

I assume that Canada Drayage is similar to Canada Cartage. Here's a Western Star hauling a CP container. Similar to CN, CP has  outside carriers for drayages, except CP does not have their own fleet.

FLD 120 Daycab for Apra Transport

(http://i.imgur.com/Xkx0Mie.jpg)

Apra Transport is a small-sized carrier with it's own yard and stacker. One of their equipment is rather interesting.

(http://i.imgur.com/P2VQkF2.jpg)

Upon closer look, it's like a step-down flatdeck. Designed only for hauling 40's, the chassis is probably 43' in length. This equipment would be absolutely perfect for moving homes, can't say the same for loading at typical docks.

On a second thought, I think the height of that low-deck might not be any different from typical chassis. It's probably the same as any other typical 40' chassis except the front is elongated and that there's no gooseneck for container to sit on.

Columbia for National Courier Group Inc.

(http://i.imgur.com/ahW6Kju.jpg)

It's hauling a HUB group container. Don't know the size of this company fleet nor is this fleet a frequent sighting in the GTA.

International for SIM

(http://i.imgur.com/1N3ewcG.jpg)

SIM (AKA, Simtrans, Simard) is a very large carrier located in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Dryvans and Intermodals, you cannot mistaken SIMs because it's presence in the GTA is very large and occurring. On the 401, you can see them hauling dual 53's.

One of the most easily identifiable truck of their fleet, you cannot mistaken this green International for another company. Also looks rather sharp.  8)

Cascadia for Highland

(http://i.imgur.com/WNEXXF6.jpg)

Terrible shot of this truck... stupid cars, Highland is mid sized fleet that hauls vans and Intermodals. They frequently haul to and from Montreal.

Columbia for Bravo? (I don't remember and I can't see the logo) Or is this MTMX? Actually I don't know. :(

(http://i.imgur.com/FRGxHEm.jpg)

Not one of my great shots, I had to take this because it's rare to see a b-train combination of 20 and 40.

There's one thing that bugs me about that photo. If the truck were to make a tight turn, would the containers touch each other? The space between the two containers is abnormally close.

One of the most frequent sightings of Simard features the golden colored Volvo. It seems that Simard of Toronto has acquired some Golden Volvos, both daycab and highways from Sheehan's.

(http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzY4WDEwMjQ=/z/bW8AAOSwA3dYF44s/$_27.JPG)

Post by: Rob Archer on November 05, 2016, 02:54:07 PM
Simtrans is the Toronto operation of the Simard Group who are a major carrier in Montreal.
 http://www.simard.ca/
The Vancouver operation is Simard-Westlink. It seems to me that Westlink was a Vancouver forwarder/warehouse operator.

Highland Intermodal has roots in Canadian Pacific. They were formed in 1967 as the full load division of Smith Transport which was a subsidiary of the CPR
Canadian Pacific also had a shipping division - CP ships.
Highland hauled containers for CP Ships between Toronto and Montreal.
CP Ships was taken over by Orient Overseas and Highland and the CPR hauled OOCL containers. They LOST that traffic to CN.
They don't seem to have as many trucks as they once did.
http://www.hankstruckpictures.com/archer_highland.htm

Canada Drayage is the laest incantation of C Truck which was the trucking arm of CAST Shipping. CAST was a non conference carrier that specialized in the Britain Canada (and later to Rotterdam) lane.
CAST was a big Laidlaw account back in the 70's and 80;'s.
Most of their containers were 20's and they were moved on A Trains.
Canada Drayage is a subsidiary of FASTFRATE. ( Merci a Rene  :) )
http://www.cditrucks.com/en/
http://www.fastfrate.com/en/

Best Choice started out hauling air freight and ocean LTL deliveries back in the 80's.


Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on November 05, 2016, 05:28:38 PM
Wow, such rich histories of the companies you mentioned. I never knew that Highland had a root in CP. I have noticed that there has been a lot more Highland activities in the GTA especially along the 401. They might be making a come back soon.

You ain't wrong about OOCL. My dad use to do a lot of related OOCLs shipments to and from CP Obico. It's rare to see OOCL going by CP lines now. Only CN and selected carriers, mainly MDS. Very rarely do I see OOCLs in CP Vaughan, nor are there any empties stored there.

Best Choice use to be located around the Airport until it had an unfortunate fire that burn down the entire warehouse. Before it was one of the carriers for MSC, Lynx Transport was the carrier for MSC. I don't know much after that. I'm not sure if WJS was acquired by BC or that BC created a subdivision like Challenger and Elgin.

A Matched Pair

Oakwood Transport, based in Ingersoll Ontario, has a car haul and container division. I thought they were all owner-operators.
Yesterday A Freightliner with a flat top bunk pulling a train with two twenty footers went past.
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc502/CdnBusPhotog/Trucks/oakwood%202_zpsux9hc0d7.jpg) (http://s1215.photobucket.com/user/CdnBusPhotog/media/Trucks/oakwood%202_zpsux9hc0d7.jpg.html)

So, I was surprised to say the least, when another basically identical Freightliner went past pulling a train of two twenty footers.

Most of their containers were 20's and they were moved on A Trains.


 They did have some 40 footers as well. I remember that none of them were built with a gooseneck tunnel, so they could not be hauled on the drop frame chassis.

I saw an On Route this morning - the Volvo daycab. He was hauling an OOCL box but his 40 foot chassis had former CPPZ markings with an On Route decal over top.
No pic.
Oak Wood from Ingersol had at least 3 sets of empty B trains going into a yard, including a International Lonestar but I couldn't wait for them to return.
Musket and Hensall Global pics later.





I don't know too much about On Route either. It's not a frequent sight, seems relatively small.

Pretty sure it's the same truck I drove side by side south-bound from Woodbine to Steeles onto 404. It was heading towards DVP, IIRC.

Hmmmm.....3 weeks into January and no can haulers yet.  ??? :-[

Anyways, GT Group who are based in Montreal and have a small terminal in Toronto are not one of the regulars down here.
Neither is the ITALIA container.
Got a "Crappy through the dirty windshield on a dull day" shot of it.

The Italia container is a rare sight. GT Intermodal, which is based in Etobicoke, does Montreal-Toronto hauls.

If I'm not mistaken, the unknown can hauler is Seaport.

I've seen Pearce Cartage from time to time but not this truck.

They are based in Hamilton, nice to see some southern carriers making their way to the heart of Intermodals.

Post by: Zeprome on January 29, 2017, 09:08:28 PM
Nedlloyd! That's a rarity! IIRC, it was absorbed by Maersk. I still have a Nedlloyd keychain somewhere in my home...

Never heard of CCL, another fallen SSL?

That green box, it looks so familiar but I never known what SSL that is. I seen that box in depots just rotting there. CN and CP use to have some of those boxes stacked as garages.

That CP Rail box, the style is still in use. There's an older style that featured a beaver. I never knew that Sunbury use to haul containers.

Lots of unknown carriers. Quite nostalgic to see some old trucks and cans.

(http://i.imgur.com/sqHzWrd.jpg)

I don't know much about Union Air Transport but I still remember the distinctive Nedlloyd symbol.

(http://i.imgur.com/rGPrP8q.jpg)

The other side, I wonder if the numbers still work?

Wayne,
Zeprome -
Thanks for the additions.

Union Air Transport - Customs Broker and Freight Forwarder.
I didn't know it was affiliated with Nedlloyd. I thought P&O took over Nedlloyd but haven't researched it yet this morning.
Zeprome - you couldn't get a 677 number to work with a 416 area code.
677 was Malton. Still is for that matter.
That keytag is a neat find.

Rob

Post by: Ruffin51 on January 30, 2017, 01:30:47 PM
The green container is Terra Transport, a defunct Canadian company. Those are quite rare - all photos are appreciated!

CCL=Costa Container Lines. Italian company that was purchased by Hamburg Sud.

Nedlloyd did combine with P&O to create - you guessed it - P&O Nedlloyd. Maersk, trading under the name Maersk Sealand at the time, purchased the combined company 12 years ago and then changed their trading name back to Maersk Line.

Was Safmarine a separate SSL that wasn't absorbed by Maersk as well? I get confused when the dispatcher says get a Safmarine box when it's literally a Maersk.

I'm not sure if there's anymore terra containers. If I get lucky in termination depots, I might try to catch one.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto

To my knowledge Safmarine is a subsidiary of Maersk.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Ruffin51 on January 31, 2017, 10:36:51 AM
Safmarine is indeed a Maersk-owned company. As you mentioned, their containers are basically interchangeable and the Safmarine boxes sport the familiar Maersk prefixes. When Maersk bought Safmarine, CMBT (The Belgian Line) was owned by Safmarine already, so up until recently you'd see the odd SCL (Safmarine and CMBT Lines) or CMBT box mixed in with the Maersks.

Rob, that's not RS Rush. That's Adams Cargo.

In other news, I saw that RS Rush acquired some very sharp Western Star 5700 day cab the other day.  8)

Rob, your proximity to MTMX is great, try to capture the 40' chassis (as the lead) with 20' chassis b-train combination (as the rear). Often times I see this unique train during the night on 401 on my way back to home and it's super rare to see it!

EDIT:

They are common sights and a stable of small trucking firms. Really does it's job.

My only grudge with the FLD120/112 is the short turn base and since Volvos and Daycabs have spoiled me, I don't like driving a FLD120/112.

That's an interesting observation. DSquare is a relatively newly seen carrier in the GTA in which I started noticing couple weeks ago. I like that paint on the DSquare truck some aesthetics makes the Columbia unique which is quite rare on "working-class" trucks.  8)

That's what I thought it said.
The Google Search kept taking me to StartRek.
Now that I found them, with your help, I see they are located on Anson Drive in Mississauga.
That building looks vaguely familiar - I worked out of there for a few months back in 1980.
We were looking to run a bonded warehouse and were told by Customs we had to be On Airport.
So we found space in the new(at the time) warehouse on Northwest Drive.

It's nice to still see some oldie FLDs on the road. If anything, their persistence presence is a testimony that old trucks are quite reliable. I mean, I seen some junky highway FLD120s hauling a full load of scrap metals that requires 6 axles! Even more impressive is their resilience when climbing up the hills on 401.

Paul's, Adams and RS Rush AFAIK has recently acquired some pretty new day cabs. Of them, I think RS Rush has a sharper fleet consisted of the Western Star 5700, which is very rare among the Intermodal carriers in GTA. Oh, their Volvos are pretty top-niche too. Been wanting to catch a RS Rush truck when I'm buying parts at Freightliner/Volvos...

A Late April Update....
In NO Particular order.

This is Musket Transport's Container Yard. It is one of three in southwest Mississauga.

Good catches. I'm surprised that BC is going down to Musket to p/u some NYK. After IBL moved, NYK distributed its boxes to Musket and BC IIRC.

Here's a sharp unknown O/O Pete. I've never seen this truck in the Intermodals but it's refreshing to see some sharp trucks hauling cans.

An early May update

There was a Columbia from MDS pulling a contaioner. I'm sure I have shot the truck before so didn't take its picture again.
The chassis he was hauling looks old though. Dayton Spoke wheels aren't too common anymore.

Post by: Zeprome on May 02, 2017, 05:29:52 PM
It's interesting to know that MDS still uses the old and basic generation chassis with the Dayton Spoke wheels. The odd thing to know is that the landing gear is often positioned at the passenger side, I suppose to encourage PTI?  Being partnered with OOCL they exclusively use the ex-SSL chassis. I think the orange colour is default norm in which they inherited from OOCL. I don't think they have 'better' equipments like Musket.

I know an O/O from MDS that at one time hauled those 33' extendable bridge master chassis which is only suitable for hauling super heavy 20's. I remember how he remarks that stability is great but fuel economy wise is terrible since the can is further away from the cab which captures more drag from the incoming wind.

I wonder what the acronym MDVE meant at the back of the chassis. Maritime Delivery "Something" Equipment?

So, so far in May there was one nice day. Rain Rain Rain....

Here is a Musket heading to their yard with a B train with 2 20's loaded.

Lots of familiars and interesting updates. Some of the carriers have acquired new galvanized/silver chassises which are absolutely stunning. I recognize most of them, but I don't recall seeing that Volvo (and that company logo) with the Triton container before.

I seem to be back - but I don't how long for.
Good update - I have seen LSI out here near the Ford plant but never hauling containers that I remember.
Canada Cartage seems to be bucking the new equipment trend. Lots of scruffy owner-operator units seen now. I saw a USED BR SMITH!!!! International 9200  daycab still in BRS paint with a Canada Cartage decal on the door. That would be one tired worn out tractor!

JJG- Back in the 90`s in N.Y. our company leased a bunch of FLD120 day cabs w/o all the farings from Ryder. They were great trucks. Twin screws and singles w/350 cummins and 9 speed road rangers.
The car is either a Bentley or a Rolls.

That is cool, I know I have caught a few out here as well over the years but they certainly were the under-rated FLD. The FLD was a fantastic truck all around.

The car has a Bentley grill in it as the Rolls Royce grille was a bit more defined, sharper lines on the surround. They seemed to have shared much of the same sheet metal.

It's either a Bentley S1 or S2, both were based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. At the time, most of each brand shared platforms, but Rolls Royces had (and continue to have) their trademark upright bar grille, whereas the Bentley grille, as seen in the photo, is less pronounced. Rolls Royce is now owned by BMW, while Bentley is owned by VW, but Bentley's are still produced at the Crewe factory in the UK, however they have taken on a sportier appearance, whereas BMW has kept Rolls Royce more of an old money luxury brand.

I had seen this tricked out tractor all summer 2017 but never got a decent shot of it until the summer was nearly over. Wednesday September 20 and the light was fading but I finally got it.
I believe from what I saw on Facebook the owner is not running it over the winter but painting and fixing it up.

Thanks, Rob!

The Sea Axis container is unusual for two reasons. First, it's a Euro pallet wide "SEA CELL" design, type 4EG1, which we don't generally see in North America. Second, as you found out, Axis is no longer in container leasing. My best guess is in the transition period from GE Seaco to HNA Seaco, Axis held the rights to market the Sea Cell for a short time. I believe HNA Seaco now markets the product. Here's one I caught in Antwerp.

Another Update to the Can Haulers of Toronto.

Near the MT Annex on North Queen Street on the last day of February.
Intermodal Inc - Mack with with a CMA CGM 40 foot dry box.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/ANjEDEMNM2kRmN/14711612.1/900/p/intermodal_mack_2-28-18.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/ANjEDEMNM2kRmN/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=14711612#14711612)

Another Mack - daycab leased to Wincar with a 20 foot dry can. The striping on the tractor looks like it was on with TransX at one time.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/ON2k2jM2Q3INTQ/14711619.1/900/p/wincar_2-28-18.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/ON2k2jM2Q3INTQ/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=14711619#14711619)

Here is a Freightliner Columbia operated by a small company Genonah Trucking. The hood is likeky a replacement with the different paint. When adjusting the picture I saw the tractor had ghost markings for US carrier IWX.

And, another for Ruffin. Best Choice is the drayage company but the container is a rare catch. It is from JAY who are based in India. I don't recall a JAYU container before. Charles - if this is a rare bird I'll send it to you for your blog.

Are they narower than the standard or high cube containers we see more often??

Post by: Ruffin51 on March 02, 2018, 01:43:01 PM
Rob -- Jay is super rare!!! Probably leased to CMA CGM. Great catches lately man!

Pascal -- The corner castings and height are identical to standard containers. The extra width comes from the extrusion corrugations as you can see if you look closely - they don't just in to the inner space of the container at all so they're just very slightly wider

Here's a interesting can I found last year.

(https://i.imgur.com/VyuGaMO.jpg)

Rob, perhaps you know something about GMP and this container? What is it? The prefix NONU is probably the same as XXXU which is the designation used for an independent box sold to a buyer. That means that the box is no longer under lend-lease or steamship line ownership.

It might be a regular box but the front seems different from the rest.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: partsman88 on March 17, 2018, 01:32:04 PM
It's definitely not your typical can, I'm curious to find out about the 3 ports on the front too.

As far as NONU goes I found 3 results from RR's comprehensive listing of can companies:
http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/rsList.aspx?id=NONU

2 were marked with a special designation for CSX, and the third is a 40' painted over from another company.

I agree with you, hard to tell who's using it and for what. Nice find though.

Also Google turned up this but I'm not sure if we can trust this listing:

GMP was a drayage cartage company but now that you mention it I haven't seen them around.
Containers have all sorts of second life uses. They are very versatile.

The name on this carrier makes me smile - in an ironic way - Ontario Best Carrier.

Post by: Zeprome on March 18, 2018, 08:49:17 AM
Frankly I don’t think any carrier should be calling themselves the “best” carrier. That said, the name was probably a vision and goal of the past. Sure they will strive to provide “better” services but there are many better carriers in the market now. You’re right about their second life uses. Not uncommon to see these boxes lying on the ground for storage purposes. However, I question the many off-hire boxes in gigantic yards. Probably won’t be moving for centuries. I know containers can be transformed into living spaces but I heard that brand new containers are worth the cost especially when it can be produced more cheaply and better. (E.g. China)

Note the number 45 at each end of the can. The can is 45 feet long. The standard long can is 40.
These were for domestic repositioning but I believe they were an experiment that wasn't successful.
Domestic containers are 53 feet long. So the 45's are too short for domestic use and an awkward size for shipboard loading.

And, one more.

I went past there a couple of weeks ago and the yard was empty.
The place in Oakville where they were located wasn't a good spot for a freight yard.
Lots of neighbours; neighbours who would complain and be listened to.

I think the location they are situated at now is perfect for them. Though I cannot visually see them on google, are they taking a segment of CP Obico? Or all of it? Can't imagine how they would function since MTMX is a relatively large carrier with stackers and lots of containers, as per last time I visited them. Their location is pivotal and is much closer to major terminals via the 427.

Anyways, some updates.

Charlie and Jim (JJG) are correct in my opinion.
That is the only time we ever see Fortin trucks down here though; just when they are being reused by the can haulers.


Speaking of re-used trucks, the antecedents of this Paul's Freightliner are pretty clear.

I never heard of J.E. Fortin before. Sounds like a carrier that rarely comes to the GTA.

It's amazing how a lot of ex-company trucks are making their way into the Intermodal scene. Many of them are recognizable.

J.E Fortin is located in St. Bernard de Lacolle and haul freight mainly between Québec and New-York State. It's the oldest Québec trucking company (90 years) mainly involved in Refrigerated transport. It operates also TTX a flatbed specialist carrier

Here is another former Fortin  hauling containers I shot back in 2012.

I always thought that Fortin was to Montreal what GZL is to Toronto; a produce hauler, based near the border, that rarely if ever left it's territory.

On surface, it may look like it�s uncared for. Just because the chassis is very brownie-rusty, does not mean it�s not maintained. The areas where the two metals touch each other upon sliding would warrant some greasing, however it�s not sustainable since grease would fall off and that sliding chassis does not require much greasing to work. For the best optimal sliding, some sliding chassis have a coat of plastic-wax between the two sliding metals. The most important places to grease are pertaining to the usage of slack adjusters for brakes and landing gears. The body could use a new coat of paint but it�s expected to see these brownie chassis persist for so long simply because it�s pointless and expensive to re-coat a new paint over these equipments. You would need to chip/chisel off excessive rust, remove portions of airline/power lines, lots others procedures. Plus, these equipments are pretty cheap and easily replaceable.

It's one of the older 20' chassis models for sure but looks relatively well-maintained, i.e. that's not rusted and that the frame looks solid. What's nice about it is the simplicity and height. Modern 20' chassis allows for a better weight distribution and stability but at the cost of higher height. Some docks, especially at places without the possibility of off-loading/loading at a dock, require a lower platform for off-loading.

If you compare the two 20' models, you will notice the difference.

Length: 49'8"
Width: 8'1"
Height: 8'5"

Maximum Payload:
Tandem Chassis: 46,000 lbs
Tridem Chassis: 58,000 lb
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on May 16, 2018, 09:44:06 AM
Of all the intermodal boxes, the domestic 53� design attempts to maximize payload capacity through maximizing the space available and permitted on the road and rail. The special XHC designation indicates that the box is much bigger in width and height compared to standard ISO boxes. Typical chassises are not as suitable for carrying this type of container which leads to the XHC chassis which takes account of the lower gooseneck tunnel and additional width. 53� requires to have the gooseneck tunnel bars on the chassis to be flipped downwards to compensate for the 53� lower gooseneck tunnel. You will see some 40�-53� chassis equipments with thick bars on the gooseneck and some with slightly extended width platform at the rear twistlocks.

The gooseneck bars can be seen here which allows for compensating for the gooseneck tunnel of a container. It’s a bit difficult to see, it’s the red bar left of the grey-ish extended part of the gooseneck.

a nice shiny Yang Ming can - it might be on it's maiden voyage.

Post by: Wreckerman on July 23, 2018, 10:34:59 PM
The CNTL Columbia is nice, I've always thought their paint scheme was particularly sharp.
The can it's pulling looks unusually clean, maybe it's been recently painted or is fairly new.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on September 16, 2018, 08:44:27 PM
Some Summer-Fall Updates.

A typical Musket resting for the weekend. Those two cans are likely owned by MSC, a major partner/customer for Musket, which are going back to Montreal to be shipped oversea for re-use. Very likely because Canada lacks oversea exports.

(https://i.imgur.com/OVlZMPw.jpg)

I believe it's Trans-Globe Logistics. A rare carrier to be seen with a JB Hunt container. Maybe it's a long-hauler? If you note the JB Hunt container chassis, it's configuration is unique as they are located on the driver side (i.e. service and supply glad hands and power plug).

(https://i.imgur.com/1NRYsQy.jpg)

Another rare carrier. Pioneer, a heavy hauling carrier hauling a container. A very rare and unique combination. Looks very sharp though. Interesting to note that the container fits perfectly fine on the lower step deck. Perhaps it's just exactly 40ft?

(https://i.imgur.com/uxeKr6z.jpg)

Virdi. A common sight in the GTA. Their fleet seems to be gradually growing and they do dry vans as well.

(https://i.imgur.com/fn5nKCF.jpg)

Scott-Woods. Another heavy hauling carrier that's hauling presumably off-hire containers to customers. Off-hire means that Steamship Lines (SSL) no longer uses these cans hence these cans are commonly stored in termination depots. People can buy used cans at low prices for storage purposes. Or they can use them as shipper's own container (SOC) which means they have ownership of the container and can be used for shipping goods overseas.

(https://i.imgur.com/1QoY72H.jpg)

Lastly, this sharp Peterbilt for Seaport. I remember I took a photo of this truck before, looks like the O/O installed a new bumper with lights on it.

(https://i.imgur.com/ii0UCuP.jpg)
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Wreckerman on September 16, 2018, 10:44:17 PM
The Pioneer Freightliner is sharp, and the red Pete is cool to, really like the headlights. 8)
I believe you're right on the container that Pioneer is hauling is 40ft, we haul containers on our Landoll that has a 38ft lower deck, and the containers have about a 2ft overhang, so 40ft seems spot on.

A  new carrier first time spotting is CANA BRIDGE.

Triples!
Musket had dropped this B Train on a side street near the terminal and the tractor went back to the yard.

WHOAAAA! This is the first time I've seen this type of B-train equipment! And Max-Atlas is making them now? Lead 40' chassis with a fifth wheel!!! Is the 40' chassis extendable? ROB I MUST SEE MORE OF IT PLEASE!!! Let me know if it can extend to 45' or shorten to 20'. This is just like that chassis combo that MTMX has!

Found it! https://max-atlas.com/trailer/cccobl4010-3as-01/

Not unusual to see Musket ship these containers. It seems mandatory for them to adopt using these b-train equipments since Musket stores a lot of MSC empty boxes.

I see coiled air lines hanging under the lead, a regular B train lead wouldn't have that, and the pup's 5th wheel seems a long way back from the centre of the tridem.

The more I stare the odder it looks.
It's either extendable or the wheels slide, which I haven't seen before.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on October 09, 2018, 05:24:13 PM
Based on the Max Atlas website, the chassis equipment only allows the fifth wheel to be extended.

The coiled air lines are a common feature among all extendable chassis. Ones that aren’t are fixed accordingly to the frame.

It’s an extendable, the dolly frame is fixed. The interesting thing is that it’s air suspension, which is an uncommon feature for container chassises.

Should we be expecting quadrupled 20s soon???  ::) I would really want to see that!

Example: a 359.

Yes; they have a few. The picture I wish I could have taken was one of the new Volvos with 3 or 4 stacked new container chassis heading to the Royal Windsor Drive yard.

Moving along - this is kind of an interesting container.

Private equity firm Fortress (FIG) will own 52% of BOX(SeaCube) post-IPO. Fortress is the selling shareholder here. Note that Fortress attempted to bring their container properties public in early 2008 under the name SeaCastle. The market cap at the time was to be over $2 billion. Thankfully, it got shelved as that market cap would have been under hefty pressure from the get go. SeaCastle would have had over $3 billion in debt on IPO, brought on by leveraging containers as well as via the leveraged buyout nature of Fortress acquisitions. Post-IPO, BOX will have $700 million in net debt.

But, this morning I saw two from a new (to me at least) fleet ATM Freight Management.
(where's Zeprome...do you know this carrier?)
Also, this Freightliner from EGGR from the Montreal area.

I've seen and posted them before but here is their website.

Nope. But by personal observation, I've seen ATM do mostly container reefer drayage.

Some updates. I haven't been taking much photos.

Best Choice pulling a B-train of K-Line cans which are now merged with ONE.

This Freightliner for IBL is still rolling. A close family-friend of mine knows this driver. Great to still see him and his truck serving the GTA.

Another sharp Freightliner for Rowcliffe. Never seen this truck but nonetheless, it's refreshing to see these splendid giants.

Just a collection of these new galvanized container chassis I have found at a local tire depot. A lot of local carriers are obtaining these CIMC container chassis. One thing that irks me are the rear side lights because it seems to be difficult for the driver to see the rear of the chassis. This is because the lights are designed at a 45 degree angle away from the driver's view. Never haul these chassis before but that's my first impression.

It's probably a more interesting picture that reality - they are likely empties being returned to CN.
It does make for a cool picture though.

Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on February 26, 2019, 08:21:35 PM
From what I have witnessed, assuming that if these are empties, they are transported to Montreal to board a vessel. Maersk and MSC, which are two primary SSLs that Musket services, majority of the boxes are transported by CN lines. Since CN runs on reservation systems, loads have more priorities over empty boxes. It’s also simply more efficient to transport empty or light-weight loaded containers by trucks and leave the heavy lifting for trains. There’s also drayage for really right scheduled loads, for instance those that miss the cut-offs at terminals or have bookings booked with requiring outside carriers to transport. Then, there’s New Jersey/New York port where I’ve heard there’s no established rail corridors (except for Buffalo which is what’s Seaport does) which requires transport by trucks.

It’s also interesting to note how various carriers designate their chassis equipments. Like, 20-40-45-03 indicates the length a chassis can extend while the “03” indicates it’s the third chassis in their line up. I wondered how dispatches and truckers would coordinate especially if they used lease chassis such as flexi-van or trac-lease because each chassis designation is presumably difficult to identify without asking the driver “do you have a 40’ with 3  axle chassis”? Based on adam’s cargo chassis number, I assume 2410 means it can extend 20 to 40 and is the 10th chassis with the similar specification. Under this system, communicating with dispatch is relatively easy because they know what chassis it is without further inquiries, which can painstaking given some language barriers.

Post by: Zeprome on February 28, 2019, 07:32:36 PM
Difficult to assert. The 40’ and 20’ MAERSK container could both be empty or lightly loaded; even the Maersk 40’ chassis it’s front axle raised up. The alternative to taking the trains which frees up space for heavier loads. Also possible that both containers are very time-sensitive do boarding the train is not an option.

Seatainer and Gusgo are two similar companies and I believe are entirely comprised of O/Os. If you guys aren’t aware, 427 is undergoing an extension which will bypass many of the intermodal terminals near Vaughan including Seatainer.

Hmm, also a CN truck going down to Southdown? I would be amazed to know if it’s shunting cans to and from Musket, especially empties. Usually that’s what Musket does regularly, though it’s possible their increase in activities between Montreal and New Jersey ports warrants for this type of cooperation with other fleets.

Ruffin, those b-train combinations are usually used to ferry containers to and from Montreal and Toronto. Sure, they have to drop the rear first, then shorten the lead chassis to be compatible for loading. Then unhook it and then put the 20’ to the dock.

Rob, that’s Sun Express, one of the more iconic truck for that fleet. Also that’s a stunning photo of duo Muskets.

Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on May 13, 2019, 09:46:57 AM
I have seen Musket haul 2x20’ loads before, but never a 3x20’ with loads. Possibly because of the weight factor. It doesn’t seem like there might be much spare cargo weight allowed on the road.
Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Rob Archer on May 17, 2019, 04:36:58 AM
From what I observe - Multi containers other than 2 x 20 footers are empties.
I thought they would be shuttling them to the rail yards but Zeprome says they send some of those to Montreal.
Toronto is an inland port and 95% of the containers arrive by rail.


And, this week's can hauler is...a Volvo from Carmel. I think it must have been Bison before.

Title: Re: The Cans of Toronto
Post by: Zeprome on June 06, 2019, 09:24:47 PM
Ruffin, I’m not sure myself. All I know is that I never hauled doubles or even triples before and much of the cargo weight is pertaining only to the maximum net weight of a container. For instance, most 40’ HCs have roughly around 63,000lbs of payload allowed. 20’s are roughly the same though it’s definitely a killer even with Tri-axle chassises. You can fit more in but terminals will reject if it’s over the max gross weight. Their stackers/crane can approximate the weight upon lifting.

I saw roughly I think 11 Musket trucks including the unusual non-grey Volvo’s ferrying containers to Montreal last weekend. They didn’t seem to bring anything back this time.

It’s always very nice to see varieties of trucks especially since Musket seems to have acquired some relatively new and different trucks. Not sure if they are O/O but goes to say the uniform shades of grey are starting to be more colourful now.  8)

So many can hauler fleets are scruffy - these guys do stand out.

Nice Bright Summer Morning pictures.

"Only" a tandem chassis as well. Most seem to be triaxle now.

So; it's been about a month since we last updated the CHOT files.

Carmel Volvo with a 20 foot dryvan leased can.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/M1NM5zTM2YNzNU/16350539.0/600/p/carmel_can_hauler.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/M1NM5zTM2YNzNU/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350539#16350539)

I shot this on the QEW from the Tim Hortons but the summer shrubbery makes for a cluttered shot.
This is a CP domestic reefer can. The tractor is either leased to or arranged by Canada Drayage

The two Canadian railways are fighting for market share. CN took over the TransX trucking operation to increase it's refrigerated business.


Here's a picture that I screwed up. The retailer Canadian Tire has a small private fleet operation of Volvo daycabs for the Toronto region. It is the used container with the CDAU markings I should have focused on.
 (https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/j0yTyjNTTOy0Ej/16350541.0/600/p/Cdn_Tire_Private_Fleet.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/j0yTyjNTTOy0Ej/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350541#16350541)

Then, same day, I didn't get a good shot of this Spartek Logistics tractor as it went past.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/YM3TTYMNTTTNcg/16350542.0/600/p/spartek.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/YM3TTYMNTTTNcg/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350542#16350542)

Pauls from Mississauga is a large drayage carrier. This Freightliner daycab had dropped a container at one of the yards and heading back for more.

August 2019 action....

Sunday the third; just up the street from Musket's Container Yard.....
One Volvo leaves with a Cronos reefer can
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/MM2Mz2AR2I,NNM/16350550.0/600/p/musket_loaded.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/MM2Mz2AR2I,NNM/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350550#16350550)
while another goes for it's load.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/jMMAOLjmUEOQjj/16350551.0/600/p/musket_mt.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/jMMAOLjmUEOQjj/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350551#16350551)

The following Friday evening this Volvo came up the street after leaving off it's container.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/zO3MN4ywzwTMGT/16350552.0/600/p/volvo_mt.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/zO3MN4ywzwTMGT/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350552#16350552)
while the next (Saturday) afternoon a Kenworth W900 owner operator for Musket went to the yard.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/z40DcJEEDjMjLk/16350553.0/600/p/musket_bobtail.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/z40DcJEEDjMjLk/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350553#16350553)

We saw this CNTL Volvo headed west on Highway 401.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/MzmMQjM2,YMjxc/16350554.0/600/p/cntl_volvo.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/MzmMQjM2,YMjxc/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350554#16350554)

Back to Southdown Road
Adams Cargo International with a container for drayage. They've been hauling containers locally since the 1970's.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/jEDzTYYYG,mOyx/16350555.0/600/p/adams_cargo.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/jEDzTYYYG,mOyx/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350555#16350555)

Here is Canada Cartage with a regular Canadian Tire domestic container at the store.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/2EDMzOMDMwwMMM/16350556.0/600/p/ccs_cdn_tire.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/2EDMzOMDMwwMMM/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350556#16350556)

Most of the Musket tractors are gray Volvo sleepers but this white daycab shuttles the containers between their three local yards.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/UNRjw4YM4NMTTk/16350557.0/600/p/musket_daycab.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/UNRjw4YM4NMTTk/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16350557#16350557)
It wears their older logo on the door.

A Musket driver stops for a coffee on his way out of town.

And this update ends with a beat up old International that I thought was an ex- BR Smith tractor.

The O/O W900 for Musket is sharp, and the CNTL Volvo is typically snazzy. 8)
For some reason, the old beat up IH looks cool, too.

I can't believe Canadian Tire still have those old Navieras de Puerto Rico 53' container... When I worked at Canadian Tire's eastern Canada dc, they already had them and they were  beat up...

Rob does Canadian Tire run any 60' cans in Ontario yet? Hoping I'll catch one up there. Looking forward to seeing those CN cans too, I've only caught one down here so far. Nice find on the CP reefer can too.

An update..........

We'll kick this update off with

Ontario Transway
with a MSC foot drybox.
  (https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/O3Q5,zNNOQ,QOM/16352425.0/600/p/Ontario_Transway.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/O3Q5,zNNOQ,QOM/albums/Can-Haurs-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16352425#16352425)

Carmel Transport with an exciting White Volvo with a Seacube reefer can.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/AM0wC5UQj4N5wd/16352424.0/600/p/carmel_1435.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/AM0wC5UQj4N5wd/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16352424#16352424)

Continuing with the Volvos; Lasta Transport with an empty B train set pulled to the side of the road while the driver grabbed a coffee.

(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/QTNjYIMYYj1QY3/16381498.0/600/p/lasta_volvo.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/QTNjYIMYYj1QY3/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16381498#16381498)

Here is an International LT from Paul's.

Then, again from Paul's, a Freightliner Coronado pulling a OOCL container
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/1Y2jVYLNYM3TNj/16381502.0/600/p/pauls_coronado.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/1Y2jVYLNYM3TNj/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16381502#16381502)

but, Volvos rule this update like this red one from Seaport International.
(https://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/jTy2YAL0O2IIEz/16381504.0/600/p/seaport_volvo.jpg) (https://www.slickpic.com/share/jTy2YAL0O2IIEz/albums/Can-Haulers-Of-Toronto/photo?view=16381504#16381504)

and one from Musket slowing about to turn into their yard with a 40 plus a 20 B train set.
