The Canadian armed forces’ (CAF's) 2nd Canadian Division Support Base Valcartier in Quebec has received new logistics trucks from Mack Defense, the Canadian Department of National Defence announced on 14 January.

In July 2015, the Canadian government awarded two contracts to Mack Defense, valued at a total of $834 million, to deliver over 1500 trucks, 300 trailers, 150 armoured protection systems and in-service support. Of the more than 1500 trucks purchased, around 450 will be based in Quebec and will be used by CAF units, including Reserves.

The trucks come in five variants ranging in use and size from regular cargo to cargo trucks with a material handling crane. The cabs can also be swapped out for an armoured cab for use in high threat environments.

The trucks can carry up to 9.5t payload and will be used to transport critical equipment, personnel and supplies during domestic and international CAF operations.
