Very interesting, indeed!  Looks kind of awkward on the chassis though.  New dedicated account?
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Surprised they've made it 7 months and still look practically new!  ;D

When I got to work this morning 2 of these were sitting on the yard. I'd heard we got some but had never seen one before.

I have seen one of these, and was beginning to think maybe I was seeing things since I haven't seen one since.

I'm told they presently have 11 of theses units with 300 more on order. They have been running specific lanes mostly for Wal-Mart.

The reefer unit & fuel tank take up the first 3 ft of the container. That leaves 50 ft inside. They can load approx 42,000 lbs loaded out to the 48 ft line.

They carry a little over 150 gals. of fuel which is enough to run it all the way across the continent.
