I can answer this one for you -- NYK Line. Nice snag on the 3x20' -- do you know if the front container was Blue Sky Intermodal?


here is a Cascadia day cab with an unknown reefer on a tridem chassis

Re: The Cans of British Columbia - It's a busy port.

VANCOUVER PORT CARGO HITS RECORD VOLUMES IN 2018
From the Toronto Globe and Mail Friday March 1 2018
Quote:
Container volume increased 4.4 per cent year over year.
The port notched 3.4 MILLION TEUS - a new record.
For every 10 containers that come into Vancouver full, 8 leave full.
That touches back to the special grain crops - a lot of peas and lentils for India go out in containers.
Loads of lumber, B.C. seafood and Prairie beef and pork find their way into containers."

That's a nice update to know. However, we need better infrastructures and equipment to account for these increased volumes. It doesn't help that CN Milton could not be established because of NIMBY-ism.
