Oil and Gas

Oil and gas equipment often lands at the Port of Vancouver.  It then requires transportation to Northern BC or AB.  Apex specialized rigging and moving team can be called in to facilitate this move.  We use our heavy haul specialty trailers and transportation expertise to ensure swift delivery and quality expertise.  As a team, we organize the load pick-up, routing, any traffic management, bridge analysis, and destination timing for offloading oil and gas equipment.

Our moving processes include:


There are times when large marine vessels must be moved to dry dock, whether for hull construction or hull repair. The shape and the weight of most vessels make it difficult to move on dry land.

Our experience in moving 2,000 ton ferry hulls out of dry dock and into the water, as well as removing and placing large vessels on to dry dock, makes us an invaluable team to work with in the marine industry.​

Bridges and Infrastructure

In some cases, such as with precast bridge assembly, it is more efficient to cast the bridge beams at the precasters yard and then transport them to site. The same scenario can be said for building bridges over waterways. Water is obviously not a very stable working environment, and therefore it is easier to build on land and then transport on barge, in order to the build the bridge properly, and allow for a faster project cycle time.
