Intermodal shipping refers to moving freight via two or more transportation methods. The containers used can move seamlessly between trucks, trains, and ships. Businesses may prefer intermodal shipping in Canada for domestic needs, such as moving freight across the country in both directions. Our intermodal services are capable of moving various goods with multiple levels of transit times depending on the date you need your cargo to arrive at its destination. With Frate Express, our premium rail service is a priority rail service that allows you to ship more weight capacity with substantial cost savings and with transit times that are comparable to Over-the-Road.
Less than truckload (LTL) shipping is ideal for businesses looking to move smaller amounts of freight from point A to point B. Less than truckload (LTL) works for companies as a cost-effective measure, where they only pay for a portion of the trailer their freight occupies. We can help ensure your LTL shipping in Canada meets the requirements and has the documents necessary for easy transport. Once shipments arrive to locations in Western Canada we are flexible with our intra-west deliveries. We offer LTL shipping at all our terminals in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Regina. We also offer LTL shipping to all Eastern provinces ensuring seamless delivery of all shipments.

With our fleet of 20′, 40′ and 53′ container chassis and over 500 trucks on the road, we are fully equipped to serve your drayage (container transport) requirements throughout Canada.
