|Reid's Transport of Rangiotu (near Palmerston North) have had some unusual (for NZ) trucks over the years, including an International Transtar II, but this Kenworth conventional is fairly conventional.|
| Renault trucks are sold by MTD in Palmerston North. This new model that Max has shot I haven't even seen yet.|
Looks impressive in the silver/white livery of Post Haste, the courier division of NZ Post.
|Big cab of a 500hp Volvo Globetrotter XL and trailer spread over 9 axles carries chemicals for Orica NZ.|
|Cat powered Western Star of PTS with a load of old truck chassis and axles.|
I wonder if they are scrap, or heading to aid a restoration.
|Peter Trotter of Levin supplies fertiliser and lime. Being carted here in a Mack, which the rego plate suggests has 400hp.|
|The New Zealand Lumber Company started in the late 1940s supplying and carrying wood products.|
Today the NZL Group has warehouse, storage and container facilities and large fleet of rigs like this International 9800.
|Crawford Carrying began in Seaview near Wellington. This Isuzu EXZ carries a 20ft container on a skeletal trailer that appears to have a flat deck section at the rear.|
|Another Crawford rig, this time a Hino with a container lift for loading/unloading its own containers up to 40ft in length.|
|The AF Logistics rigs must be fairly numerous past Max's house, I would imagine, given that Foodstuffs' distribution warehouse servicing the lower North Island, is in Palmerston North. An AF Scania rig, operated by Winiata Transport passes by.|
|420hp of Volvo FM12 wears a Hookers name on the door, but is not in Hookers usual colours. Maybe a company they have recently purchased?|
Driver appears to have spotted Max's camera.
|Seymours Transport operate stock trucks and have a base at Glen Oroua, near Palmerston North, but I think they originated elsewhere.|
One of their FH Volvo Globetrotters hums past.
|Car Distribution Group has in excess of 100 units operating in New Zealand, transporting mostly new cars to dealers.|
This Scania rig has a 5/8 load of Toyota products.
|Seymours Transport again. This time pulling a 5 axle trailer. These rigs can carry slightly heavier and longer loads under a special licence, providing they display an "H" placard, as seen on the front bumper of this Freightliner Argosy.|
