Walt posted a Teamsters link on another thread.
I found this article
Canada: Turmoil Up North

Allied has laid off about half of its 600 workers in Ontario, after giving up the Chrysler (Windsor) and GM (Ingersoll and Oshawa) traffic. Both Jack Cooper and Cassens are struggling to move the traffic they acquired.

AWC has hired a number of the laid-off Allied workers as drive away workers to get Chrysler vans across the Ambassador Bridge to Detroit for Cassens. Cars and vans are still piled up around the plants.

Furthermore, Jack Cooper has a substandard, percentage pay Teamster contract in Quebec, and the company wants to extend that contract to its new work at the Ontario GM plants.

This would undercut the Teamster contract with Cassens and the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) contract with Allied and AWC. It could also open the door to the Jack Cooper drivers leaving the Teamsters for the CAW.


That explains a sighting I made earlier this week of a Volvo in Allied colours but with another name that I didn't catch on the cab door.
Allied must be dumping their unused equipment.

From September...
Allied Automotive unloading imports.


A nice looking Freightliner that I've seen a couple of times recently.
The name is a little hard to read but it looks like Carhaulers Canada

Cassens has about 10 Ontario plated trucks (Internationals), the original when they set up in Ontario back in 2001.
The rest of the Canadian fleet is Illinois plated.
The Canadians have to do the domestic work.
An agreement between the US and Canadian teamsters limits the other from working 50 mile IIRC from the border. I also believe an exception was allowed about a year ago, but has recently been stopped. It allowed a relax in the border agreement on a load for load basis. This allowed a US truck to load out of an Ontario plant, and deliver directly to the dealers stateside.
The agreement has been around for a long long time. The independants dont have such an agreement, thus they have bunks, and carry on work as any other 'normal' trucking operation in North America.

I passed this Pete car hauler in Milton ON on Sunday 2-5. He might have been on his way to the large car auction centre located there.

Laberge Transport has a yard in Oakville. The driver of this Freightliner was on the racks - it appeared that he was loading vans.

Thanks Jim. It sure looks a lot different than the old Auto Haulaway trucks used to. Was their yard on Highway 4 near the Ford Plant back when you lived down that way?

Carrying on - Quebec based car hauler Transport Leberge opened up a yard in Oakville last year.
This single axle Sterling with a 4 car trailer runs from there.

The driver was adjusting the straps on a vehicle loaded on the deck.
 
They don't seem to be moving Fords at that yard though. Maybe it was just available space in the GTA for them to use.

The Ford shipping compound is hard to take pictures of. There is a lot of foliage and a fence to make foreground clutter.
I see trucks from UNITED ROAD in there loading at times.


Most of Ford's prodcution seems to be shipped by rail.
The CN yard is always full of these 89 foot autorack cars.
