    Innovative new trailer is Ontario-made and designed
    New trailer allows for 30% more cube space than a standard 53' trailer

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Walmart Canada recently unveiled its latest transportation innovation, a 60-foot supercube trailer that allows the retailer to ship up to 30% more product than a standard 53-foot trailer. Designed and built in Ontario, the supercube trailer was produced in partnership with Innovative Trailer Design.

    "Innovative and efficient transportation solutions are essential to achieving Walmart's sustainability goals," said Andy Ellis, senior vice president of supply chain and logistics for Walmart Canada. "This new trailer allows us to deliver more products to our stores, using fewer trucks, thereby reducing our impact on the environment."

    The supercube trailer was unveiled at the recent Fall 2012 Transportation Sustainability Conference. Held at the Walmart Canada home office, the conference was attended by representatives from various industries including retail, transportation and logistics and energy, and included presentations on fuel innovation, natural gas and transportation innovation. ............

    I would hate to have to deliver that to the Crenshaw store in LA.

    Not likely it would present any problems since few States allow those older 57' Dry Van Trailers and California isn't on the list.

    it may be legal in canada, but there is only a hand full of states that alow bigger then a 53 in the US. even in the states that allow the long 60 foot box the wheel base would make it illegal . if the trailer is 60 feet long there is at least another 10 feet of truck in front of the trailer.
