These pictures are from Walter Mulder who took these pictures starting in April 2002 at the Lethbridge Truck Terminal in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Lethbridge Truck Terminal is owned by Dean Paisley of Lethbridge. He took over the delivery of UPS in Southern Alberta in Sept, 2000. Walter is one of the courier drivers that came to work for him at that time. Dean owns all the tractors in these pictures, the van in these pictures will be Walter's after only two and a half more years of lease payments. :)

Five nights a week Lethbridge Truck Terminal pulls the UPS trailers from Calgary to Lethbridge, were they sort and sent one of their own trailers on to Medicine Hat, were three courier drivers take care of that City and surrounding area. The rest is handled by eight capable courier drivers operating from the main terminal building in Lethbridge. Four take care of the city, while the other four do the surrounding area. Walter's area is west from Lethbridge to the BC boundary, and South to the USA border. A beautiful area to work in, including Waterton National Park.

When you see the UPS ads on TV showing that the guys in the brown suits go anywhere, that is not true, the guys that go anywhere would be the independent contractors like Lethbridge Truck Terminal, and they have blue suits.

Most of these pictures were taken at the terminal between 7 and 8:30 on a nice Saturday morning.
  Here are a couple of pictures of the freight coming in on Highway 3.
Some pictures of Mike hauling triples.
Purolator is now contracting for UPS where UPS does not provide service themselves. This did cost me and many other independent contractors their jobs.

I now drive for the contractor for ATS (ANDLAUER TRANSPORTATION SERVICES) on the Lethbridge-Medicine Hat run.

Who says we're getting old? I got a job offer today involving a substantial raise doing basically the same thing I have been doing now for a good number of years. :)
Looks like in August I will be going back to Lethbridge Truck Terminals. Pincher Creek/Crowsnest Pass run at $22.00/hr
Then there are two pictures of 119, with the body wrap (featuring a Volvo). I drove that truck till about a month ago, when the engine gave out. The engine was too small for the work I did. The reefer was too small for the box also. They are looking for a tandem for me now, as I don't want to get my class 1 licence. You can see me driving the truck in the last picture during a snow storm, courtesy of Global Television.
Unit 247 is quit typical of what our company dries now. The boss seems to like Volvo.
These remaing pictures are courtesy Lethbridge Truck Terminals.
