I would like to thank John Groot, Dick Green and the guys at Summit Logistics in Burnaby for letting me take pictures at their yard


Over the past year or so, Summit Logistics has been replacing their highway fleet from International tractors to the new extended day cab Kenworth T-800's
Here is one of them with a trailer that seems to be unique to Safeway Canada
Here is a lineup of some of their highway tractors
The center trailer is a 48 ft and the ones on either side are 42 ft trailers
Rear view of the extended cab on the T-800
Some of the city tractors
This driver lucked out when he was able to put polished aluminum wheels on his steer axles A city driver just finished doing a pre-trip on his tractor
Trailer F914 was one of the first with air ride suspension A Van-Kam Freightways trailer at the dock with a few Safeway trailers
International city tractor just hooked up to this city trailer for the day These trailers came from the Calgary yard when they were down sizing. Note the white wheels.
Demoted Safeway trailers now used for yard service
Some of the buildings at the Summit Logistics yard Another International city tractor and city trailer getting ready for the day
Some yard service trailers used for storing pallets This trailer came from Calgary. Note the pintle hook. The Calgary operation would hook two 53 ft trailers together and bring them as far as Banff where a BC tractor would switch trailers and continue back to BC. This International was near the shop with some new wheels and tires

Nicknamed the Taj Mahal. This International truck is used for servicing the reefer units on the trailers A yard goat taking one of the shorter 42 ft city trailers to another dock One of the newer trailers with the new white "S" Safeway logos
