We continue to look at the TNL brand and a selection of trucks from the 1980s through to the 1990s.

TNL has seen some major changes over the last decade with possibly the biggest being a change of ownership with TIL (Transport Investments Limited) taking control.

TIL also own Hookers Pacific and this connection has seen a slight change of livery on the TNL-branded trucks. Orange has been incorporated on the roofs of the cabs and on some flatdeck semis and chassis, resulting in the TNL units looking almost identical to their North Island counterparts.

The model of owner/operators and company-owned units within TNL has remained under TIL ownership which ensures it remains a varied fleet of most makes and models.

What may not remain, however, is the TNL logo as TIL has been adopting its own logo on recent fleet additions, causing speculation that the TIL signage may eventually replace that of TNL, which may bring an end to the Iconic brand.
