Petes at the pier

Several nice Peterbilts showed up at the Fairview Cove container pier this week, all with drop deck trailers.

First up was this chromed and shiny one from Bedford, NS based Salto Freight Systems Inc:
Carrying one container on his Lode-King trailer.
With nice fender skirts and other trim.

Then a blue one from D.A.LePage Transport Ltd from Brantford, ON:
Well illuminated cab,
and slick Fastrak tarp system on a Wilson trailer. The tarp system, with aluminum bows, is demountable, including the front bulkhead, which includes a man door (partly visible in the photo below).

And finally a sign of the season, a salt streaked emerald green and black one, looking almost white, operating for Clarke Road Transport, Flatbed Division:
Winter salt keeps the roads free from ice, but makes an almighty mess of shiny trucks.

Clarke in based in Halifax, and has flatbed terminals in St.John's, NL and Milton, ON, and runs nearly 200 trucks in  LTL and TL divisions across Canada. It also has warehousing, expediting and other services, and is a major intermodal operator. Most trucks are owner operators.
