Le groupe Erb reçoit le dernier camion International LoneStar fabriqué

Le 15 avril 2024, Wilmot, ON — On Monday morning, The Erb Group, a leader in cold chain transportation and logistics, celebrated a historic moment as they were presented with the last International LoneStar truck ever manufactured. The event, which took place at The Erb Group's Baden Terminal, was attended by representatives from International Trucks, Altruck, Twin City Graphics and members of The Erb Group's team to celebrate a milestone moment for The Erb Group and for the truck manufacturer, International. Wendell Erb, President and CEO of The Erb Group, graciously accepted the keys to the final LoneStar truck, symbolizing the culmination of a longstanding partnership between The Erb Group and International. Alongside the keys, a custom plaque was presented to honour "Another Cool Move" for The Erb Group, reflecting on the company's commitment to innovation and excellence in the transportation industry. In a symbolic gesture, Wendell Erb handed over the keys for the latest LoneStar to Carl Jantzi, a Cross-Border Driver who has been recognized at The Erb Group as 2023's Driver of the Year and has previously earned Owner Operator of the Year multiple times. The presentation highlighted The Erb Group's history with the LoneStar model, dating back to 2008 when the company was entrusted with the first-ever International LoneStar prototype for testing before it officially hit the market in 2009. This partnership has been grounded in shared values of safety and reliability, fostering a strong relationship between The Erb Group and International trucks over the years. From testing prototypes to receiving one of the last LoneStar Trucks, it marks a full circle moment for The Erb Group. As the transportation industry progresses towards increased sustainability efforts, discontinuing the LoneStar model marks the end of an era for the classic [caption id="attachment_3476" align="alignright" width="346"]Wendell Erb and Carl Jantzi Wendell Erb and Carl Jantzi[/caption] model. However, Erb remains committed to maintaining a state-of-the-art fleet, collaborating with suppliers to ensure a competitive edge for drivers and clients alike. Ahead of the presentation, The Erb Group's Senior Corporate Fleet Director, Jim Pinder, coordinated a lineup of all Erb’s International LoneStar models for employees and attendees to observe at the Baden Terminal, including the first prototype which was brought out from the company’s antique museum.
"Erb Transport is honoured to receive the last International LoneStar ever manufactured,” said Wendell Erb, President and CEO. “We celebrate the history of the LoneStar and the privilege of testing the first model ever produced as well as owning the last LoneStar ever manufactured. We were grateful to have a reason to celebrate together today."
