Western Freight Lines

The Overland Express


Western Freight Lines trailer. Western merged with Overland to form Overland Western Express based in London, Ontario.
This Overland Express trailer shows the logo and color scheme used by Overland before the merger with Western Freight Lines to form Overland Western.
Here is a picture of the terminal building at 961 Middlegate Road in Mississauga Ont. The terminal is presently vacant as the latest carrier to be there, Province Cartage went out of business in the fall of 2001. The first carrier who was located there was Western Truck Lines. This is the carrier that was merged with Overland Express of Woodstock Ont. to form Overland-Western, later TNT Overland, now TST Overland. Western, in the late 60's, ran Fords, Super Duty models powered with Detroit engines. They bought some WT-1000 slab (day) cab tractors shortly before the Overland merger. These were the WT-1000's with the large F O R D across the grill. The next carrier I recall using this building was Krause Cartage, who hauled lumber into the USA. They had a strike and closed their doors. After that, McKinlay Transport was in there for most of the 80's. Central McKinlay maintained their terminal in Milton as well. Today they have a secondary terminal in Brampton, near the Chrysler Bramalea plant that they are the house carrier for. Province cartage and their Canada- US sister company, Sureline Systems, were in 961 for the 90's. Robert Archer Collection.
