The blue Century is leased to Challenger; the old daycab is from AceGroup.

And a few more from mid-April

Air & Oceanland Inc
are based in Brampton.


Here is a T660 from HUTCH with a Cronos reefer box. They are based in Mississauga.

MTMX
is the Transforce Intermodal carrier along with P&W Intermodal. They have closed their yard in Oakville and moved to a yard on the site of the former CP Obico Terminal. Here is a MTMX truck on the way to pick up a container.


Another Trump truck.


Unusual Container of the Week
Uniworld with a K Line.

Note the number 45 at each end of the can. The can is 45 feet long. The standard long can is 40.
These were for domestic repositioning but I believe they were an experiment that wasn't successful.
Domestic containers are 53 feet long. So the 45's are too short for domestic use and an awkward size for shipboard loading.

And, one more.

MTMX has closed their yard? When was this the news? They use to be located beside MDS and Musket area IIRC.

I went past there a couple of weeks ago and the yard was empty.
The place in Oakville where they were located wasn't a good spot for a freight yard.
Lots of neighbours; neighbours who would complain and be listened to.

I think the location they are situated at now is perfect for them. Though I cannot visually see them on google, are they taking a segment of CP Obico? Or all of it? Can't imagine how they would function since MTMX is a relatively large carrier with stackers and lots of containers, as per last time I visited them. Their location is pivotal and is much closer to major terminals via the 427.

Anyways, some updates.

That's a lot of can haulers you just put up here, cool, looks like most from the same spot on similar days!

I think the Century is an ex J.E. Fortin, not a Robert?.

The AJ Container Express FLD looks like an old Active unit.

Charlie and Jim (JJG) are correct in my opinion.
That is the only time we ever see Fortin trucks down here though; just when they are being reused by the can haulers.


Speaking of re-used trucks, the antecedents of this Paul's Freightliner are pretty clear.


Not quite so sure about this Air and Oceanland Columbia

I never heard of J.E. Fortin before. Sounds like a carrier that rarely comes to the GTA.

It's amazing how a lot of ex-company trucks are making their way into the Intermodal scene. Many of them are recognizable.

The blue Columbia is an ex Gordon Trucking Company from the US west coast, now bought out by Knight I think!

J.E Fortin is located in St. Bernard de Lacolle and haul freight mainly between Québec and New-York State. It's the oldest Québec trucking company (90 years) mainly involved in Refrigerated transport. It operates also TTX a flatbed specialist carrier
located in Granby 100 kil. east of Montréal.

Here is another former Fortin  hauling containers I shot back in 2012.

I always thought that Fortin was to Montreal what GZL is to Toronto; a produce hauler, based near the border, that rarely if ever left it's territory.
