Management announced today that they have purchased 10 new Freightliners and have integrated them into their current LTL, Truckload and Dedicated fleet operations. The roughly million dollar purchase will allow CW Henderson to add capacity for customers throughout their province of Ontario service area.
Bruce Mann, Director of Operations for CW Henderson explains, “We typically purchase new Peterbilts when we add to our fleet but with the Canadian dollar where it is now, it was definitely not the best solution this time. The late model, low kilometer Freightliners purchased are powered by the Cummings ISX15 450 HP engine. They are a proven engine and conform with our sustainability policies to lower emissions and fuel consumption.”
According to Cummings Engines, “Each element of the ISX15 is manufactured to maximize fuel economy, performance and durability, while delivering the lowest operating costs of any engine in its class. Integration and optimization of every system from air handling to exhaust after treatment results in the most reliable engine on the road. The ISX15 was the first engine certified to meet 2014 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations – a full year ahead of schedule.“
Bruce Mann, Director of Operations for CW Henderson, is pleased to announce the purchase of 20 new 53’ dry vans to add to their fleet. The purchase included a mix of tandem and tridem vans with payloads of 53,000 lbs and 63,000 lbs respectively.
The new trailers all display CW Henderson’s “Over One Hundred Years of Service” commemorative decal, a claim not many carriers can make today. The dry van purchase follows the recent purchase of 12 new Great Dane trailers equipped with Carrier reefer units. Bruce Mann explains, “The type of freight we carry demands pristine equipment and we take great pride in our ability to deliver exactly that to our clients. Each purchase accomplishes two things. We retire some of our older equipment and add capacity for our growing customer base with the additional units purchased.”
Both purchases were made from Dockside Trailers, near London Ontario. All equipment purchased is air-ride equipped, plate-trailer constructed and food grade compliant. A high percentage of CW Henderson’s customers are in the grocery and food categories.
