There is so much to Canada's vast remaining wilderness that finding a way to transport your heavy construction equipment across the country requires a little creativity. Usually trucking services can help if your equipment does not have to travel very far. However, you might want to consider some of these other transportation options for moving your construction trucks from one coast to the next.
There are two shipping options by land. Your heavy equipment can move over the ground by trucking services, via wide load flatbed movers, or you can ship your equipment by freight train. Canada has one of the best railway lines for moving heavy items all the way across the country. The only out-of-the way areas are P.E. Island, and territories farther north. If you want to go entirely by land (and do not need to ship equipment to P.E. Island, of course), you can use a combination of the trucking services and the railways too.
Numerous international freighters dock in the Hudson Bay and Great Lakes, as well as the coastlines of Canada. By the very nature of their intended purposes, these freighters could load your heavy equipment and carry it to almost any part of Canada where there is a dock and coastline where the crew can tie off or cast off. Just make sure that wherever you plan to send your equipment by sea, there is a way to unload the equipment too.
This is, undoubtedly, the most expensive route to ship heavy equipment, but if you need the equipment sent to a logging site or oilfield that is fairly remote, then by air it may have to go. Heavy steel cables wrap all the way around the equipment. The cables attach to helicopters and the equipment is airlifted to your site. A military cargo drop plane may be used as well, since it has a large enough cargo hold, but because the plane cannot control how or where the equipment lands, helicopters are used more frequently. The equipment may also utilize any one of the other transportation methods to get it as far as possible by land and/or sea, and then the air lifts can bring the equipment the rest of the way.
Discuss Your Options with All Shipping Services
Many of the shipping services available to you work together or have contracts to work together to provide customers with the best possible shipping routes and options. It may benefit you to talk to more than one shipping and trucking service to see how they navigate the territories and distances you need your equipment to travel.
