Specialized Off-Road Hauling in the Lower Mainland
Get In Touch With Us
When you’re involved in construction, the transport fleet you depend on must be spot on. Civil excavation and rescue projects of any size require skilled hauling services.
North Construction in Vancouver has the resources for hauling all kinds of freight, including aggregates and the expected heavy equipment. Their team has dealt with some of the craziest off-road conditions you can imagine.
Types Of Specialized Trailers
At North Construction, the nature of the work, including eco-sensitive projects, green energy generation builds, and ski resort development, demands specialized transportation and off-road hauling.
When it comes to the heavy types of loads civil construction projects depend on, it all comes down to two types of off-road vehicles: Articulated and Rigid Frame.
Articulated off-road trucks offer more versatility, better traction, and the suspension necessary for handling steep grades and those less-than-perfect conditions in unpopulated areas. This style of truck is beneficial in the wet and rainy conditions of B.C.
When job-site conditions are uncertain, short on space, or subject to change, articulated vehicles provide the reliable transportation you need to stay on schedule.
Why Rigid Frame?
If you’re transporting materials over long distances and time is of the essence, Rigid Frame trucks are the way to go. These vehicles are most effective when there is access to permanent or semi-permanent roads leading to the work location that are in good condition.
This isn’t to say that a rigid frame dump truck couldn’t handle some rocky terrain, but they are much better suited to areas with lots of space and predictable driving conditions.
Managing Off-Road Hauling Services
It’s not just about owning a fleet of trucks or gaining access to the right transportation equipment. Successful construction project management is about understanding the job’s parameters and having the experience to deal with the unexpected.
Knowing precisely what’s being loaded, how much there is, and the maximum capacity for each hauling vehicle ensures a smooth flow. There is always a delicate balance between the anticipated conditions, hauling weight, mileage, and the job duration.
With so much on the line in terms of budgeting and time allotted for work, every mile driven and every hour behind the wheel matters.
