40 Foot Jumbo Containers 

Following the successful introduction of the 40 Jumbo box with TNT, other freight forwarders followed in quick succession. Mayne Nickless offered a nightly dedicated service between Sydney and Melbourne, they operated under several brands including MMets, Intermodal and Interlink.

The early TNT, Alltrans, Intermodal and Railex have the branding printed onto etched metal plates attached to the sides.
