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. 

Many of these containers were in continuous use from the mid-1970s through to the beginning of National Rail Corporation in the mid-1990s.

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