K.A.M. Trucking Inc. was started in 1983 by Karl and Mark Zavitz. In the beginning we had two trucks one a 1979 Freightliner and the other a 1974 Kenworth K100 along with two Timmins B-train log trailers. For five years are main customer was Ontario Paper, but as opportunities arose we purchased a small company out of St. Catharines, Ontario. With this acquisition we acquired approximately 6 trucks and we were able to attract our longest running customer. Over the years we have continued to provide dedicated service to that customer while at the same time creating a niche for ourselves in the refrigerated transportation sector of the business. K.A.M is based out of Wainfleet, Ontario and we have grown to approximately 50 power units and 70 trailers.

Truck: 2000 Freightliner Century
Truck #: T - 40
Description: This is the pride and joy of the fleet. T-40 has a C-12 Cat and aluminum wheels all the way around along with the extra stainless pkg. However what makes this tractor special is the unique back-pack option. The idea of the back-pack is to provide the driver with an extra spot to hang clothing when you are taking those long trips and storage is at a minimum.

I took the time this summer to polish up a few of the trucks in order to get some good pictures of them. This is what I've come up with to date.

Zavitz Brothers LTD was owned by Homer and Keith Zavitz. They ran the eastern seaboard (mostly NY). There were yards in Wainfleet and Mississauga. The company was sold in the mid to late 1980's and renamed Zavitz International and they went out of business a short while later.
This is a picture of my dads 1979 Freightliner when it was new. It had a 3406A CAT and a 42 sleeper. In 1982 K.A.M. Trucking Inc. was established at which time my dad and uncle began hauling logs for Ontario Paper. At this point the bunk was removed to allow for the extra clearance for the Timmins B-Train. The truck was sent to Paling in Hamilton, Ontario where the bunk was removed and the frame was shortened. There are more pictures of the truck at the top of the page.
Both of these pictures were staged. If you look closely at the picture of the fleet you can see that each truck is pulled out a little further than the one before it.
This picture was taken in Monitouage, Ontario which is between White River and Marathon. The truck in the picture is unit # 118 with trailer C-109. I am assuming that the picture of this Mack F-model was taken in New York City. If anyone has another opinion please email me. This was my Dad's first truck as an Owner-Operator. It is a 1974 Mack R-model that was purchased from a Broker at Zavitz. The picture was taken by my Grandfather (he always wrote on the back of pictures, excellent habit!) and if you look to the left of the picture you can see the employee parking lot for Zavitz.
A Freightliner on the New York State Thru-Way with a set of doubles. This picture was taken in the mid-eighties. I noticed this trailer sitting in a field just off Cataract rd. on the south side of Hwy. 20 in Fonthill, Ontario. It is a Fruehauf refer unit # C-402. The refer has been removed along with all but one Zavitz decal.
Tractor 118 backing up to C-301. I think this picture was taken soon after the truck was painted since it has such a gloss to it. All of the B-models were painted "in-house" at Zavitz Brothers. This picture was taken at the yard in Wainfleet. You can see the scale house in the right hand side of the picture.
