Rail Freight for Crane Mats
One of the frustrations with transport logistics recently has been the extreme costs of trucking in Canada because of the flooding problems we had in November 2021. All the highways were closed going north from the Lower Mainland (Vancouver). Truckers couldn’t get to the Lower Mainland and then they couldn’t move north. One potential solution is Rail Freight. Here we are loading 60 Crane Mats 12″ x 48″ x 20′ long on centerbeam 72′ rail cars. Rail cars can take at least 200,000 lbs (sometimes more). These Crane Mats will be going to a terminal close to our customer and he will pick them up there, saving trucking through the damaged highways.
