New Pete’s On The Street

I gotta be honest, I like the way this Peterbilt 337 looks wearing the New England Motor Freight colors and I’m the last person on earth you would call a Pete fan. Plus I think it’s fun to sound out the acronym NEMF. This rig stands out to me as NEMF runs a large fleet of Volvo and Mack products with more than an handful of older International 8100’s still slugging it out.


When I saw this truck parked outside of the ONCenter earlier this week it brought to my attention that the Goo Goo Dolls with special guest Run River North were in town. I was a little PO’ed that I didn’t know this until it was too late. To top it off they were performing an all acoustic set! Gotcha! I could have cared less. A brand new Peterbilt 579 for Upstaging Inc does this heavy hauling for the tour.



I liked the NEMF truck so much I followed him down the street to grab a side profile shot. Click to Enlarge.

    I find it funny that they call themselves New England Motor Freight, when they are based out of NJ and don’t usually run freight in New England. I remember their old yard in Norwalk CT before some shipping conglomerate bought them out

    You may also find it interesting that one of the owner’s of NEMF is also the wife of one Sir Paul McCartney! And yes, the main terminal and head quarters is in Elizabeth, NJ right by the port entrance, a VERY busy place for trucks.
