This may be an O/O or something, but this is an albino Freightliner Cascadia for Con-Way Truckload with no roof logo or stripes. Looked kind of strange to me after seeing a lot of other rigs with all the colors...

Cool catch. judging by the number starting with a 4 it is an Owner Operator. Their latest trucks start with a 3**** and their O/Os always start with a 4. Maybe they have some kind of Lease Program going or something.

Thanks to roogie for the Photo!

Thought I'd add these new Great Dane ABF pups, this one was about 2 months from the factory. The 552*** series:

I see ABF has been going back to swing doors.

The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Looks like a ODFL Volvo, switching back from FL Cascadia's?

They already have a few in the system. I caught a sleeper and a day cab last summer and I caught another one this summer.  I wasn't sure if they were getting anymore, so I was glad to see that one.  There was another identical setup running with this one.

Nice catch on the Averitts city units as well. There was a rumor on another board that they would go with some Internationals. I hope they may pick up some Prostars or Transtars for shuttle/line haul.

I caught a ton of Prostar sleepers for their truckload division on this trip.  Unfortunately, I didn't see many trucks from LTL except for these and ones parked at their Knoxville terminal.

Saw a new UPSF Volvo, all brown, piggybacked with an ODFL Volvo heading towards Denver near Salina, Kansas.  Missed the pic due to a passing truck. :(

went back 5 pages and didnt see anything.   not so much "new equipment" but rather:
Holland (usf) has repainted many older sterlings to solid orange and has them simply lettered Holland like the newer volvos. the units are at their joliet IL terminal. ill try for a picture. it was raining today and i couldnt get a shot off.
sorry if it was mentioned already.
its a binder thing you just wouldnt get it...

It's unusual to see a carrier buying city tractors nowadays since the ROI and resale value on them is essentially zero.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

Sounds more like ex-Yellow twin-screw Sterlings. I've seen a photo or two of Yellow Sterlings transferred to Holland in the Midwest.
