Clarke Road Intermodal fleet is an excellent alternative to over the road service to handle truckload freight between central Canada and the Maritimes. We have dedicated fleet to handle P&D and drayage in Ontario, Quebec, Halifax, and St. John’s. We have a large fleet of Dry and Heated intermodal equipment. Having access to our own equipment as well as third party containers leads to better flexibility as well as availability.
Our fleet operates between Canada - USA. The advantage of having a company owned large fleet, is that we can cover almost any load using our own equipment. In Canada, our highest focus remains the Maritimes and Central Canada provinces. In the USA, we focus primarily on the Eastern Seaboard and US mid-western states. Our fleet of intermodal containers is key to providing heated service in the winter months.
We have a large fleet of company owned Tandem and Tri-axle air ride equipment with average trailer age of 2 years or less. In addition to Clarke owned 53’ high cube containers and chassis, we have access to a pool of 45’ and 53’ railway and ocean containers. We provide regular and expedited service with a mix of company drivers and owner operators. All power equipment is rotated regularly to meet the fuel conservation program. In addition, we have strict maintenance guidelines to maintain equipment readiness and to reduce equipment breakdown. These initiatives help improve driver satisfaction and retention.
