Album Info:I've been a Swift fan since 2005, and some of the trailers that have the Swift at the front, or in the back on the right side, or the Swift at the front on the left side, was first introduced in April 2008. It was applied to trailers from 080000-080499. Those were manufactured by Great Dane. It was also applied to trailers 081100-082299. Those were manufactured by Wabash National. Then in October, this design was changed with trailer 082300 which was also manufactured by Wabash National, where the Swift design is in the center of the trailer. This same design is now used today, on all of their new trailers.

Title:  Swift Transportation
Description:  This trailer even though I don't have the trailer number, was manufactured by Great Dane, in either August or September 2008. Also, the trailer number is between 080300-080499. The way that I can tell, is because the Swift logo is at the front. Great Dane trailers that have the Swift design at the back, are in the 080000-080299 series. The Wabash National trailers that also have this design have trailers 081100-081699 having the Swift design at the back, and trailers 081700-082299 having the Swift design at the front. For some reason the Swift design on the left side of these trailers was always at the front, instead of having both the front and back, like how it is on the right side. This design was used between April and October 2008, and was applied to 1,700 trailers.

Description:  Trailer 108057 was brand new, as for being built this month. I think Swift has around 115 of these 108 series trailers, and these trailers are somewhat interesting as for when they were built. Some of these trailers were built earlier this year in February, and then they stopped for a little while, and then picked back up this month. I have trailers at least from 108000-108049 being built in February, and then trailers 108057-108110 being built this month.

Description:  This trailer was manufactured by Wabash National, but I cant remember the number. It was a 141 series, which means that its a high cube type. These high cube types are usually used in the western part of the country, because of clearances. Regular trailers are 13"6. This one here, is 14"0.

Description:  Trailer 112036 was manufactured by Wabash National, in November 2010. Wabash National must have been pretty busy that month building trailers for Swift, because trailers at least from 111549-112366 were built that month. Also too, Swift has been busy adding more new trailers. They are now into the 133 series,and the 133000s are manufactured by Great Dane, Wabash National, and Hyundai. Then, trailers 133050 to at least 133868 are manufactured by Hyundai. I think that this is the first time Swift has purchased trailers from Hyundai. Swift also has more new trailers in the 135 series. These are manufactured by Great Dane, and Ive seen them as high as 135283.

Description:  Trailer 150874 was practically brand new, as for being built in April. This trailer was manufactured by Hyundai. You can easily see the Hyundai logo on the front of this trailer, but another easy spotting feature with these trailers, with being able to tell that they were manufactured by Hyundai, is that the www.swifttrans.com is below the 53' marking. Trailers manufactured by Wabash National, and Great Dane, have the www.swifttrans.com above the 53'.

Description:  I wish it was easy to find the newer Swift trailers on trains, but sometimes I also snap them parked. It s easy to find the Swift Intermodal containers on trains, but sometimes a challenge to find them on a chassis on a train. This year, Swift has been painting some of their newer trailers in an American flag design, honoring veterans. This one here, 173245 is practically brand new, as for being manufactured by Hyundai, in June.
