I can answer this one for you -- NYK Line. Nice snag on the 3x20' -- do you know if the front container was Blue Sky Intermodal?


here is a Cascadia day cab with an unknown reefer on a tridem chassis

Re: The Cans of British Columbia - It's a busy port.

VANCOUVER PORT CARGO HITS RECORD VOLUMES IN 2018
From the Toronto Globe and Mail Friday March 1 2018
Quote:
Container volume increased 4.4 per cent year over year.
The port notched 3.4 MILLION TEUS - a new record.
For every 10 containers that come into Vancouver full, 8 leave full.
That touches back to the special grain crops - a lot of peas and lentils for India go out in containers.
Loads of lumber, B.C. seafood and Prairie beef and pork find their way into containers."

That's a nice update to know. However, we need better infrastructures and equipment to account for these increased volumes. It doesn't help that CN Milton could not be established because of NIMBY-ism.

That reefer mount is provided by the SSL and provides direct power source to the reefer. Traditional genset chassis, usually by trucking companies, will have underslung generators that provides electricity to the reefer. Thatís also a rather unorthodox container chassis. Itís like a combo chassis that cannot extend but allows 2 20s, or 1 40 or 1 45. I know that Musket have several of these equipments used for ferrying containers.

Thanks Zeprome, so the blue T-K unit that sits up high on the front of the container stays with the container , correct? How do they stack them in tight with reefer units extending the flat front? Just not in the know, curious!

CAI is a leasing company (primarily red containers)and probably has a long term lease with  CMA/CGM. Eventhough CMA/CGM decals and logo is on the container and painted blue, the unit # is CAI number.

Gen sets that go on the nose of the container ("clip ons") are for use when on truck, rail or operating at a yard that does not have plug ins. When on the ship, the reefers are connected to ship electrical power and there are no gen sets attached to the containers.

Thanks guys for the info, makes sense they would remove it for shipping on the ship!
