International container shipping services operate much more like a large marine taxi service these days, than in the past when they ran regular point-point schedules. Ships master's often receive instructions to change direction in mid-ocean and go to a different port, based on the requirements of the day, and where they happen to be at any one time. This does mean that the road transport operator must keep tabs on what is happening, using all the technology possible, to ensure that loads are dealt with in a timely manner, and keep clients happy, and demurrage charges at bay.
The new Auto-Logistics/PTS Group's livery of white & orange is being introduced progressively, as new units such as this 9-car Fuso arrive on the fleet, up and down the country.

One of the first new heavy-weight units (although pre-the new white/orange livery) in Auto Logistics' new fleet renewal program, is pictured below. New units not only present a good look on our roads, but offer fuel economy and low particulate emmission rates that could only be dreamed of a few short years ago, along with superior stability and braking systems.
