yesterday  11-30-09 I saw a DHL straight Box van truck on the 605--older model IH unit similar to those used by UPS.  Usually they only run parcel type vans.  Sorry no pic. Definitely still in business but they use a different contractor out of Signal Hill CA which in right next to the Long Beach Airport. They may have taken over Air Bourne's landing slot at Long Beach as they had previously used a contractor out of Santa Monica which is close by LAX.

Interesting info, Charlie.  I only caught a couple of glances, but I was able to tell that the trailer was in Freight livery and had the underride skirts and swing doors.  Didn't have a camera, or I would've definitely gotten a picture.
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Been seing a new "short nose" single axle Cascadia for FedEx Ground running around Portland the last few weeks.

I saw one down here too, Mike. Also been seeing a few single axle sleepers for Ground as well.

They've had the T300s for a while now. I have some pictures too. Holland's not in my area anymore though.

Ive never seen one before, and it was all white w. white wheels....pretty plain. It was either coming from Reznor or the Mercer Forge.

Guess we'll be seeing them all over the place in the near future.
