Private equity firm Fortress (FIG) will own 52% of BOX(SeaCube) post-IPO. Fortress is the selling shareholder here. Note that Fortress attempted to bring their container properties public in early 2008 under the name SeaCastle. The market cap at the time was to be over $2 billion. Thankfully, it got shelved as that market cap would have been under hefty pressure from the get go. SeaCastle would have had over $3 billion in debt on IPO, brought on by leveraging containers as well as via the leveraged buyout nature of Fortress acquisitions. Post-IPO, BOX will have $700 million in net debt.

That Volvo is one of the newest additions to Musket's fleet. Looks like it only runs between Toronto and Montreal as I don't see it on local roads.

Here is one of their new Volvos.

More November 2018 updates.....

Ontario Transway


Carterm on a very cold raw morning. This driver has a faithful co-driver keeping watch.


Carmel with a Dong Fang container


IWD parked outside McDonalds. Driver came back to the truck with his lunch.


Virdi with a daycab


Rexway with a 20 footer.


Highland - these guys used to be much busier when CP Ships were in business. Then CP Rail lost the Orient Overseas business to CN. Now they seem to be just another container hauler.

So, I haven't been looking for can haulers recently - taking a break and looking for more variety.
But, this morning I saw two from a new (to me at least) fleet ATM Freight Management.
(where's Zeprome...do you know this carrier?)
Also, this Freightliner from EGGR from the Montreal area.


I've seen and posted them before but here is their website.

Nope. But by personal observation, I've seen ATM do mostly container reefer drayage.

Some updates. I haven't been taking much photos.

Best Choice pulling a B-train of K-Line cans which are now merged with ONE.



An old Mack still hauling cans for Western Canada Express.



A very sharp Pete for Carterm Intermodal Logistics (CIL)



A rather sharp Western Star for MTMX



A late evening shot of this super sharp Pete for Passport Trucking.



This Freightliner for IBL is still rolling. A close family-friend of mine knows this driver. Great to still see him and his truck serving the GTA.



Another sharp Freightliner for Rowcliffe. Never seen this truck but nonetheless, it's refreshing to see these splendid giants.



Just a collection of these new galvanized container chassis I have found at a local tire depot. A lot of local carriers are obtaining these CIMC container chassis. One thing that irks me are the rear side lights because it seems to be difficult for the driver to see the rear of the chassis. This is because the lights are designed at a 45 degree angle away from the driver's view. Never haul these chassis before but that's my first impression.
