Hmmmm.....3 weeks into January and no can haulers yet.  ??? :-[

Anyways, GT Group who are based in Montreal and have a small terminal in Toronto are not one of the regulars down here.
Neither is the ITALIA container.
Got a "Crappy through the dirty windshield on a dull day" shot of it.

Pearce Cartage of Hamilton with a Freightliner daycab.
He had an empty B Train set of chassis.

Earlier in January - up on The 401, an unknown can hauler with a China Shipping 40 footer returning to Brampton.

The Italia container is a rare sight. GT Intermodal, which is based in Etobicoke, does Montreal-Toronto hauls.

If I'm not mistaken, the unknown can hauler is Seaport.

I've seen Pearce Cartage from time to time but not this truck.

They are based in Hamilton, nice to see some southern carriers making their way to the heart of Intermodals.

Nedlloyd! That's a rarity! IIRC, it was absorbed by Maersk. I still have a Nedlloyd keychain somewhere in my home...

Never heard of CCL, another fallen SSL?

That green box, it looks so familiar but I never known what SSL that is. I seen that box in depots just rotting there. CN and CP use to have some of those boxes stacked as garages.

That CP Rail box, the style is still in use. There's an older style that featured a beaver. I never knew that Sunbury use to haul containers.

Lots of unknown carriers. Quite nostalgic to see some old trucks and cans.



I don't know much about Union Air Transport but I still remember the distinctive Nedlloyd symbol.



The other side, I wonder if the numbers still work?

Wayne,
Zeprome -
Thanks for the additions.

Union Air Transport - Customs Broker and Freight Forwarder.
I didn't know it was affiliated with Nedlloyd. I thought P&O took over Nedlloyd but haven't researched it yet this morning.
Zeprome - you couldn't get a 677 number to work with a 416 area code.
677 was Malton. Still is for that matter.
That keytag is a neat find.

Rob

Nedlloyd and P&O merged in 1996  and finally Nedlloyd took over P&O in 2004.

The green container is Terra Transport, a defunct Canadian company. Those are quite rare - all photos are appreciated!

CCL=Costa Container Lines. Italian company that was purchased by Hamburg Sud.

Nedlloyd did combine with P&O to create - you guessed it - P&O Nedlloyd. Maersk, trading under the name Maersk Sealand at the time, purchased the combined company 12 years ago and then changed their trading name back to Maersk Line.

Terra Transport was the CN Newfoundland division during the 80's. The division closed in 1987.

Was Safmarine a separate SSL that wasn't absorbed by Maersk as well? I get confused when the dispatcher says get a Safmarine box when it's literally a Maersk.

I'm not sure if there's anymore terra containers. If I get lucky in termination depots, I might try to catch one.

To my knowledge Safmarine is a subsidiary of Maersk.

Safmarine is indeed a Maersk-owned company. As you mentioned, their containers are basically interchangeable and the Safmarine boxes sport the familiar Maersk prefixes. When Maersk bought Safmarine, CMBT (The Belgian Line) was owned by Safmarine already, so up until recently you'd see the odd SCL (Safmarine and CMBT Lines) or CMBT box mixed in with the Maersks.
