I previously caught this "pumpkin" from Pauls on a dreary wet day in April.
Again on a bright June morning.

The AMAR Cascdia is a pretty snazzy rig, the paint job is definitely different, but it looks nice. 8)

Lets see what we've got recently......

From the small southwestern Ontario town of Tupperville comes W.R. Perry Trucking. They load export grain products into containers for overseas shipping. They must be going to grab a couple of 20 foot empties.


Yer typical Toronto can hauler Columbia day cab - this one is from Air Oceanland


Clement Cartage from Mississauga


S&R Trucking Volvo returning a Beacon 20 box - Beacon is a leasing company.


MTMX Cascadia sleeper with a 20 foot MSC drycan


Another of yer  typical Columbia day cabs - APRA is the carrier who operates this one. I'm sorry I didn't a better shot of that can though.


NBT Volvo, possible a retired Sunbury?, with a Triton 40 foot box.

July 2018,
How about a CNTL Columbia day cab with a Yang Ming can.

a nice shiny Yang Ming can - it might be on it's maiden voyage.


and, a Penske rental Freightliner who picked up a Maersk reefer from Musket's CY.

Interesting combos Rob, the container business is certainly full of variety!

The CNTL Columbia is nice, I've always thought their paint scheme was particularly sharp.
The can it's pulling looks unusually clean, maybe it's been recently painted or is fairly new.

Some Summer-Fall Updates.

A typical Musket resting for the weekend. Those two cans are likely owned by MSC, a major partner/customer for Musket, which are going back to Montreal to be shipped oversea for re-use. Very likely because Canada lacks oversea exports.



I believe it's Trans-Globe Logistics. A rare carrier to be seen with a JB Hunt container. Maybe it's a long-hauler? If you note the JB Hunt container chassis, it's configuration is unique as they are located on the driver side (i.e. service and supply glad hands and power plug).



Another rare carrier. Pioneer, a heavy hauling carrier hauling a container. A very rare and unique combination. Looks very sharp though. Interesting to note that the container fits perfectly fine on the lower step deck. Perhaps it's just exactly 40ft?



Virdi. A common sight in the GTA. Their fleet seems to be gradually growing and they do dry vans as well.



Scott-Woods. Another heavy hauling carrier that's hauling presumably off-hire containers to customers. Off-hire means that Steamship Lines (SSL) no longer uses these cans hence these cans are commonly stored in termination depots. People can buy used cans at low prices for storage purposes. Or they can use them as shipper's own container (SOC) which means they have ownership of the container and can be used for shipping goods overseas.



Lastly, this sharp Peterbilt for Seaport. I remember I took a photo of this truck before, looks like the O/O installed a new bumper with lights on it.

The Pioneer Freightliner is sharp, and the red Pete is cool to, really like the headlights. 8)
I believe you're right on the container that Pioneer is hauling is 40ft, we haul containers on our Landoll that has a 38ft lower deck, and the containers have about a 2ft overhang, so 40ft seems spot on.

Triples!
Musket had dropped this B Train on a side street near the terminal and the tractor went back to the yard.

This gave me the opportunity to get a clean shot - unfortunately I only had my cell phone.

WHOAAAA! This is the first time I've seen this type of B-train equipment! And Max-Atlas is making them now? Lead 40' chassis with a fifth wheel!!! Is the 40' chassis extendable? ROB I MUST SEE MORE OF IT PLEASE!!! Let me know if it can extend to 45' or shorten to 20'. This is just like that chassis combo that MTMX has!

Found it! https://max-atlas.com/trailer/cccobl4010-3as-01/

Not unusual to see Musket ship these containers. It seems mandatory for them to adopt using these b-train equipments since Musket stores a lot of MSC empty boxes.
