VNL 780 for Load Solutions Inc. Seems like a new carrier in the area, I've never seen this company before.



International 9400 Daycab with a chassis for ACS Logistics.



Columbia for WJS/BC hauling an ex-P&O/Nedlloyd box, which is absorbed by Maersk.



Finally, I caught a pristine Volvo Daycab for RS Rush. Their fleet is often looking tip-top among other GTA Intermodal carriers.



VNL 630 hauling for Canada Cartage. As Rob mentioned before, it's unit number indicates that it's an O/O.



Lastly, an ex-Tim Hortons Columbia for Winscar Transport Inc.

I seem to be back - but I don't how long for.
Good update - I have seen LSI out here near the Ford plant but never hauling containers that I remember.
Canada Cartage seems to be bucking the new equipment trend. Lots of scruffy owner-operator units seen now. I saw a USED BR SMITH!!!! International 9200  daycab still in BRS paint with a Canada Cartage decal on the door. That would be one tired worn out tractor!

Not sure who these are:

Volvo from GN?


Mack from someone I couldn't actually read. He stopped beside the hydro pole and went to Timmy's and grabbed a coffee.

I think that's Whack-A-Mole Trucking, or something like that. Or is it Wharton-Something? I seen it around here but it's not a huge presence.

Not much updates for cans ATM but I caught some neat B-train set ups.

Here's a Volvo Daycab for Musket hauling empty MSC 20s during the weekends. It's not often that you see them hauling this b-train combination.



A Volvo Daycab for Challenger hauling a chassis set of double 20s b-train.



Columbia sleeper for ATF hauling a 40' Hapag

The Muskett is sure interesting to see the shorty in the lead, nice catch!

Sharp Peterbilt for Highland Transport



CNTL











TransX



Something you don't see often, a front axle FLD120 for TransX. Wow, is this a modification or was this really manufactured?



I'm personally surprised that Amar acquired some really new equipments. Plus, their logos have changed. I haven't caught an official Amar truck yet. Here's a rental truck hauling their newest equipment.



Toheed Transport Solutions



Tri-Point









Carmel



I'm conflicted with this photo as I was hesitate to bring this up because the cars were blocking. But that looks like an exotic car, what is it?



Virdi Trucking. Seems like a recent addition to Intermodal trucking.





Seaport 8) 8) 8)



Delta



QuikX



I really like this Volvo. Not often do you see old Volvo daycabs customized with a moose bumper.  8)

SGW



Rail Connect



Ace Group  8) 8) 8)



Adams Cargo





Airport Cargo  8) 8) 8) A personal favorite of mine. Nice color, twin exhausts, sharp visor. Looks pretty sharp for a local can hauler.

Quite the update here, the FLD 120 set forward axle is not custom, it is a factory build that was offered but never really took off.

Looks to me like you caught a Bentley.

Very good pictures; the container sector of the transport industry is so much interesting because it's endless diversity of cans
and equipments. About the car, I agree with JJG it's a Bentley.

JJG- Back in the 90`s in N.Y. our company leased a bunch of FLD120 day cabs w/o all the farings from Ryder. They were great trucks. Twin screws and singles w/350 cummins and 9 speed road rangers.
The car is either a Bentley or a Rolls.

That is cool, I know I have caught a few out here as well over the years but they certainly were the under-rated FLD. The FLD was a fantastic truck all around.

The car has a Bentley grill in it as the Rolls Royce grille was a bit more defined, sharper lines on the surround. They seemed to have shared much of the same sheet metal.

It's either a Bentley S1 or S2, both were based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. At the time, most of each brand shared platforms, but Rolls Royces had (and continue to have) their trademark upright bar grille, whereas the Bentley grille, as seen in the photo, is less pronounced. Rolls Royce is now owned by BMW, while Bentley is owned by VW, but Bentley's are still produced at the Crewe factory in the UK, however they have taken on a sportier appearance, whereas BMW has kept Rolls Royce more of an old money luxury brand.
