The flow of goods across the seas is increasing everyday allowing many organizations to expand their sales around the world. Trans BC Freightways is proud to offer a wide range of services in connection with this type of work. Our crew has become highly experienced and skilled at dealing with hauling, loading, and unloading oversea shipping containers. Our terminals are ideally located in both New Westminster and Delta, allowing us easy access to both of these major shipping ports. These terminals house a variety of equipment that is always available at a moments notice. From container chassis and dry van trailers, to forklifts and a whole host of other moving equipment, we are sure to have everything in place to meet any of your specific needs.
A major concern with container hauling is the time restrictions imposed by the port authority. Part of our successes in hauling oversea containers is that all most all of our drivers have port passes. This allows our equipment to easily move in and out of these facilities. As a regular customer of these locations our management and crew have developed strong relationships with the port. Combining our crew’s experience and plethora of equipment nearby, we can ensure you have the greatest amount of time possible to either load or unload your cargo shipping container. If an issue does arise with the port, we are able to effortlessly problem solve situations on the good or address legality that come with moving goods across the border.
