A Few Fun Facts About Highway Transport
At Highway Transport, we love attention to detail!
Highway Transport Mack trucks have two signature bulldog hood ornaments, and only true Highway experts know the difference between them. A gold bulldog ornament indicates that the vehicle is 100% Mack, whereas a silver bulldog ornament indicates it isn’t. Typically, you’ll see Highway Transport tractors sporting the silver bulldog.
