Cool Transport - based out of the Los Angeles, CA area

I believe they are still in business --one went by as I was getting situated in my spot along the 605---he was headed north--truck and trailer

They were from Mercer.  I mainly remember them pulling dump trailers, I can't picture the tanks, but that was a long time ago.

Refiners Transport and Terminal (later to become BMI) out of Oregon Ohio.

I had forgotten about the BMI era.  Refiners got pulled into the Leaseway conglomerate fold in the late '70's and the trucks changed from dark blue to Leaseways corporate light blue with the white and blue stripes, similiar to Anchors rigs.  BMI may have been one of the earlier modern day holdong companies.  I seem to recall that they had a few other carriers besides Refiners in the mix, but I can't recall who.

Ray Molder, Gundry and Refiners were all merged into BMI near the end. Most of the old Refiners managment and many of the terminal managers and drivers went on to become part of Advantage tank lines (The Kennan/Advantage group) One of the onwers is a former Refiners sales person. They currently are the largest Peto hauler in the US.

What about Frontier Delivery Service out of Buffalo?
Does anyone remember them?
Green Macks and Brockways.

Not sure but I think they may have been bought out by ARG

Does anyone remember Goddard, I believe they were out of VT. They ran red mack CH sleeper models, another one swallowed up by QC.

Learned the other day by surprise, that Hoerler Milk Transport of Janesville, WI got sold to  Lowell C Hagen Trucking out of Whitewater, WI.  Rehaul operation and all.  Pretty sad to discover this.  All their Freightliners and their trailers from the tankers, to the couple reefers and dry vans are all relettered.  Spotted in the Hoerler yard are some white International 9400i sleeper trucks.  Don't know alot of details unfortunatly.

Always figured that Hoerler would do the buying not the other way around.  The Hoerler yard is postioned near the Blain's Farm and Fleet headquarters/warehouse and the DMV on Wright Rd.

Dec. 23, 2008 The end of an era at GM Janesville.

Merrill Transport from Portland, ME.  Operated in Northern New England from 1940's until they were bought up by Superior Carriers in the late '80's I believe.  Had 4 or 5 terminals in ME plus one in VT.  Big user of IH power with 230 Cummins(!) at the end of it.  The last batch of tractors were 1984 White/GMC's with 315 Cummins in them.  Mostly hauled diesel, gas, and a lot of black oil for the many paper mills back then.  For years and years they hauled all the fuel oil for the power plant on top of MT. Washington in New Hampshire.

MERRILL!   They use to run right down the state Hwy that went right in front of my parents house.  I remember them well.
