Well we have seen this truck on here before with the FedEx graphics ... but I found him at the TA on 95 at the 89MM and got out to chat with him. His name is Steve and he was with Passport prior to the FedEx purchase. He said they are glad that FedEx sold it back and the company has been doing really since. The joke was "FedEx couldn't figure out how to get the car in the envelope" ... I laughed and told him I was one of the agents who used to set the loads up when I worked at FDCC. Anyways - this is a company owned trailer and the first trailer to get the Passport wrap on it. The FedEx ghosting is clearly visible still.

Great pics and the back of the trailer looks cool but they dropped the ball on the graphics. I like the new logo but their old units were so cool this new one is just not up to par.  Like they give a crap what I think, but just say'n could be a lot better. ;)

If you google "Passport Transport", they have a new webpage now and it has pictures of the trucks. There are STILL all green truck and trailer combo's with the passport logos (I think 2 trucks, the drivers owned the trailers and were not forced to repaint when FedEx Custom Critical bought them). Also - they have a Facebook page with a lot of pictures on there - I checked it out last night, they have wrapped almost all of the white trailers now with different graphics.

Caught a pair down in Middletown DE a couple of days ago. The Pete was rolling through town on 301 and the Western Star was tucked away in a cut out taking a break.

Awesome! From what I understand, they are leaving the few trucks that are still all green that way and calling them the "classics". They do get the new feather logo on the door of the cab though. The other one is the Peterbilt that is all green with the trailer! Great catch!!

I figured the Passport group would want the old scheme back sooner or later. Good to hear 8)

Somehow that Volvo just doesn't have the same appeal as the Petes done up in the old scheme. :(
