Conestoga Roll Tarp Drop Frame Trailer (2011-02-01)


The Conestoga is a new generation of tarping system. Named for the covered wagons of early pioneers, The rolling tarp system provides the security and protection for the loads best carried on a flatbed trailer. Instead of climbing over the trailer and tying down a tarp, the Conestoga allows a driver to cover and uncover their loads in seconds as they walk along the trailer. The innovative tarping system is faster and safer for the drivers and provides better protection for transportation. The versatility of the Conestoga also increases profits by allowing drivers to spend more time on the road and increasing backhaul options.

New Trucks (2008-07-01)


Green is now more than just our company colours! Last month the first new tractors built to our environmentally-friendly specifications were delivered. The Freightliner Cascadia and Peterbilt 387 both qualify for ‘EPA Smartway’ certification due to their aerodynamic design, side skirts, low rolling resistance tires, and Auxiliary Power Units which virtually eliminate idling time. The Detroit DDC 60 – 14.0L (455 HP) engines in the Freightliners and the Cummins ISX 450 (450 HP) in the Peterbilts are equipped with exhaust re-generation and meet the latest emissions standards. Newer technology has also been employed to ensure these units exceed normal standards for safety. All of them are equipped with Bendix Disc Brakes to greatly improve stopping distance and take the worry out of brake adjustment while Stability Controls (Bendix in the Peterbilt, Wabco in the Freightliner) reduce the chance of rollover in an emergency situation. Driver comfort is always a top priority and these new models have upgraded interiors with refrigerators, in-dash Sirius satellite radios, and heated seats added to the list of amenities installed in previous models. In the next few months watch for the arrival of our next-generation trailers that will also receive the ‘green’ treatment and upgraded safety standards.
