Can Haulers -- Jersey Style
« on: July 25, 2007, 01:11:35 PM »
Container haulage is a big business in north Jersey & many outfits have their finger in the pie. Caught these trucks today either going to or coming from the Croxton rail yard in Jersey City.

Great pictures Charlie! Quite interesting to see that even though they are coming from NS Croxton, most of these are drayman that are based on international shipments. I've seen a few of these companies pulling these import loads down the turnpike and down 95 in MD. Of the trucks that I can see the placards on, most are guys that specialize in the international loads. Most of the trucks look they are pretty well kept too! Great shots!

Great shots charlie.  That superliner looks great, and is it just me, or in that last picture, the container appears to be leaning to the left, like too much weight to that side or it didn't set properly.  Might just be the angle, and that coe appearas to have seen better days.  Where's 70'strucker, he should like these? :wink:

Charlie,I'm surprised that H&M is not represented in your pictures...

How far is the Croxton yard from Kearny??

There were trucks like the Pineapple out of Denver along with Carol Smith and his big black pete w/ a KTA600, The Monfort gang (Monfort Lane) ,Cantrell out of Mo. w/his wicked 359 3408 cat and all his friends, Frank Frazer and his small bunk, big KTA 600.

Might have been sittin' in a pothole. Lord knows we have 1 or 2 around here.  :roll:

As for the coe having seen better days. How right you are.  :-( This truck is 21 years old but used to be part of the Carretta fleet from Paramus NJ. Back in the day Carretta was probably 2nd only to Monfort in name & vehicle recognition across the USA. Take a look at one of their Pete COE's when Carretta ruled.  :-) Thanks Chris Sissick for the cool pic.  8-)

As Jamie said 6 miles. I think H&M trucks go the other way out of the rail yard and take Route 1&9 back to their yard since it's south of Croxton. Wouldn't make sense to pay a toll for that short ride.

Those are nice by can hauling standards.

Port Jersey Trucking has been around a few years. There used to be a container hauler named Transloric Trucking that painted there trucks like that. They had a cramped yard on Tonelle Ave just north of the eastern end of the Skyway.
My favorite stretch of road as a kid was always 1&9 between Port Newark and the junction with RT 46.

Just shot what came my way over the 1/2 hour i was there. Kinda surprised at the lack of broken down tractors myself.  :-o

I know it's a little before your time but a look at Fred Griun's collection on Hank's must be like a trip down Memory Lane for you. IIRC that area hadn't changed much through the late '70's.

We made several trips a week through the area, but I can't place any of the locations, such as the Fort Lee Diner. I'm guessing there were a lot more changes to the infrastructure along that corridor between the 50's and the 70's then there have been since then and there may ever be.
