Active Transport-Grant Haulage Combined
« on: November 16, 2007, 05:38:08 PM »
 Active Transport out of Milton ON runs a fleet of Mack Visions ,CHs and Freightliner classics which pull mostly multi axle flatbeds and dry bulk tankers.

A picture my dad took going by their yard yesterday.

One seen going through the lights by the fifth-wheel truck stop.

One of their classics at the fifth-wheel

This is a view of the Kraft flour mill in the Streetsville district of Mississauga. This mill is served by Active Transport.

Nice shot at the Kraft mill, it really puts into perspective how big those grain silos really are.

Here is an Active Transport trailer dropped at a construction site circa 2002.
It shows the "Sausage Dog" logo that Active developed when they were trombone trailer specialists.

Their Ontario PCV license restricted them to loads requiring a long trailer.

Some Active Transport pictures found in the Brian Alleyne collection on the Website:







I don't remember seeing that Pete on with Active; but they always ran Macks.

  Rob,
I first looked at Brian Alleyne's collection when Hank first put it up and I was so happy. He has some real great pictures of Ontario carries from back in the 80's. Iím not sure which  trucks are my favorites. The blue and white steel city trucks, the fully load lumber haulers or those beautiful gold Labatt freightliners and western starts

Went past the Active Transport yard and although they are still a mostly Mack fleet other makes are starting to make inroads including, but what else, Freightliners.

I've never seen an Active Western Star or Cascadia in their fleet. They must have just aquired them!! They look sweet in the Active transport colours. ;D ;D
