Tankers (3)

This 8 wheeler FM12 Volvo with 4 axle trailer is at Palmerston North and is operated by Rural Fuel.

These two Freightliners, one a 2004 and the other from 2000, are in the blue livery of Alexander Bulk Liquids before they changed to the bright yellow colour scheme they use now.

Although it is in Shell livery this 2005 Scania R420, operated by Provincial Transport, doesn't appear to have the word Shell anywhere on it.

28 wheels support this Freightliner Argosy of Freight Lines as it rests for the night at Copthorne Solway Park in Masterton.

Heading North and decelerating as it approaches the Paremata roundabout is a DAF CF and trailer loaded with BPs finest fuels.

A Mack Trident that first hit the road in 2008 operates for Fluidex with a B-train of unknown liquid.

Fulton Hogan are in the business of road construction, amongst other things, but I'm not sure what this short tank on the 4 axle Volvo F12 is used for.

This photo I did not take. It is a copy of a promotional postcard for Kiwi Dairies in the Taranaki region of NZ's North Island. Taranaki is a large dairying area, and the Kiwi Dairies plant at Hawera is the largest milk processing plant in the Southern Hemisphere. Their tankers travel far outside the Taranaki area to pick up raw product for this plant.
This Nissan CG380 tanker and trailer set up is the most common configuration for milk tankers in NZ.
The mountain in the background is Mount Taranaki (also known as Mount Egmont) which reaches 2518 metres.

An Isuzu Giga and tank trailer parked in BPs yard at Seaview near Wellington.

In the same yard as the above photo was this pair of Hookers rigs with their BP tankers. On the left is a Freightliner Columbia and on the right a Mack CX688.
This photo and the one above, were both taken in 2010.
