Are you handling ocean freight?  Whether an import or export container, our knowledge and access to port information is the key to your successful container move. 

Part of the complexity of transportation is that freight comes in a variety of shapes and sizes.  We help our clients by providing a wide spectrum of trailer options ranging from the basic flat deck, to more specialized pieces including low pro, curtain sides and step decks. 

With our 40,000 square feet of temperature-controlled warehouse space, we have everything our clients need to store and handle their freight.  We also offer many value-added services such as bonded space, internationally compliant crates, and cross dock facilities to ensure your move goes smooth.

Our custom crating services are in compliance with policy directive D-01-05: CWPCP as established by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

Some projects need to be handled with extra care, or the sheer volume of freight may require additional expertise.  No matter the shape or the size, we know it is our clients’ priority for us to fulfill their transportation and warehousing requirements.
