BOUCHERVILLE, Quebec – By order of the Quebec Superior Court, Tiger Group and Liquidity Services are conducting an online-only auction of a large fleet of late-model truck tractors, dry van trailers, refrigerated units, pickup trucks, dollies, forklifts, and other support and shop equipment formerly owned by Terra Nova Transport.

The transportation services company, which primarily operated in the Northeast U.S., Ontario, Quebec and Canada’s Maritime provinces, closed at the end of 2018.

The auction will include rolling stock that were in operation at the time of Terra Nova’s closing, including 76 Vanguard, Great Dane and Utility 53-foot dry van trailers; 25 Freightliner, International and Kenworth truck tractors; and 17 reefer and tri-axle reefer trailers manufactured by CIMC, Utility, Wabash, and Great Dane.

“This event represents a unique opportunity to acquire well-maintained transportation equipment at competitive prices.”
