Whats with the Swift Trade Show trailer?  Thats something I've never seen.

Going off topic here, but intermodal and the way its assembled confuses me.  For instance, in the 2nd pic their's a JB Hunt riding in TOFC style.  Utilization and efficiency of equipment/services has alot of improvement awaiting for it in the world of intermodal IMO.

The JB Hunt equipment going into UP French Camp is TOFC as there are no JB Hunt chassis there.

I see it's in a block of UPS trailers. Is Swift doing some work for UPS?

I see UPS (Parcel not Freight) pulling Swift trailers quite a bit on I-95 in MD & VA.

I'm not sure if this trailer was with the UPS ones or not, but this photo was snapped in May 2018. I was just lucky enough to get a photo of a Swift trailer on a train, because this is not the easiest thing to do. Several years ago or so, you could find these trailers on trains, but now it's difficult. It's easy to find the Swift Intermodal containers on trains, but difficult to find one on a chassis, on a train.

Also, sometime last year, Swift started adding the trailer number to the sides and front of trailers that were built before 2014. I think this might have started around trailer 152950, and goes into the 182 series. Those trailers in that series have the number on the sides and front, which might have started in August 2014. I've seen the numbers added to trailers that were built in 2008, and 2010.
