Marine Transportation

A water access solution for you.

Your equipment, your containers.  We pick-up and deliver at a discounted barge rate.

Barges are reliable and fuel-efficient

Using the barges to service water-locked communities means we can offer a cost-effective alternative to transport and do not need to rely on scheduled ferry services.  We also offer barge contracting and barge leasing.  Our new barges can be customized to ship any product, just let us know how we can meet your shipping needs.

Barging Facilities

We operate barge loading and unloading, offering three three convenient locations for marine shipping: Powell River, Gibsons and Richmond. Click here for location details.

Dangerous Goods, Fuel Transportation

A dedicated, essential service, we specialize in receiving and off-loading gasoline tankers and worry-free shipment of your hazardous and dangerous goods including gasoline, chemicals, pesticides, explosives, oxygen for patients, waste products, biomedical items, oil, used transformers, acids, dyes, other caustics and more.  Each product needs to be identified as a dangerous good and appropriate paperwork must accompany the transfer.  A good understanding of dangerous goods is required by all City Transfer drivers and barge loaders as proper identification and placarding is the law. We offer overnight, scheduled delivery of any type of dangerous good.
