Highland Transport
« on: September 02, 2019, 12:01:34 AM »
I was looking for a thread to post this on but could not find one on Highland, only one of Transforce taking it over so I thought this would be better, to start one here! This is taken off a flyer or brochure I obtained years ago, quite likely at a Truck Exhibition or a show maybe but wherever it came from they are werehiring, these trucks were featured in the pamphlet Flat deck division

it doesn't give a date but I'm guessing mid 80's? The can division

and this one from the van division

I had it in the Transforce carrier spotlight as a sticky

Like so much; my main updates were on the Main HTP website.

That's a very nice old brochure. Never seen it before.
I don't know if that Freightliner at the bottom was the best truck to use as an illustration though.
Spoke wheels with no front brakes.
Doesn't that go back to the early 70's?
Maybe they were implying they would hire older equipment.

I did catch that too Rob, had a bit of a chuckle over that, more then likely the one putting the brochure together hasn't a clue about trucks......those were the first ones that came into his camera view as he decided to get it ready to print!

I have seen some intermodal trucks still wearing the Highland name.
Here is my R.I.P. for Highland with lots more pictures to be added.

Nice....what a catch on that Sterling, a double dose of history, fallen fag, fallen name plate! Great memory!

Check back soon....moe pictures have been added.
More are being added.

CP Transport and CP Express and Transport were blue tractors with white lettering.
Maybe that's why Highland was white with blue lettering.
Then; it appears the colour code was no longer enforced.
