Jade Transport - Winnipeg, MB
« on: July 30, 2007, 02:26:29 AM »
I wandered by their yard the other day, and asked if I could snap a few pics.
They were very friendly and accomodating people, and I was was given a tour of the the facility.

I think they told me there were 57 trucks in the fleet, and except for four or five owner operator trucks, 52 are Peterbilts, and company owned, all are Cat powered.

This is one of my favorite fleets, (not because I'm a Pete fan), because every truck in the fleet is different, no two are exactly the same.

The first pic of the tanker, and the first truck in the slideshow, are a match, the bosses rig.

That's a very sharp fleet.
What products do they haul; mostly edible oils?

I think they have some food grade, they also haul lots of asphalt in construction season out of a place called Mcasphalt in Winnipeg-when my dad drove for them he had a regular run hauling pig guts from a processing plant in Neepawa,Man, to a pharmaceutical plant in Sioux City, IA.

Jade has an amazing fleet and I didn't snap hardly any truck pics while out in Manitoba.

They haul all chemicals ; methanol, caustic, food grade, etc (I followed a B train of casutic soda on the way home for a bit)

Another nice carrier ; Trappers is even hauling Loblaw/Western Grocers turnpike trailers with Pete day cabs!

Great catches guys! I myself am a big fan of this fleet. I sadly don't see them much at all down in OH....but I did photograph one of their 389s at MATS back in 2011 (seems so long ago! ;D)

Whats with the lift axle?  First Jade truck I've seen with that.  Works in Canada mostly and decided to come down to the states for a change of pace?
