In 1983, Westran was founded as an origin reload site with access to the Burlington Northern Railroad (now BNSF) for forest products mills and their customers. Along the way, we built a solid reputation for integrity and innovation with both customers and carriers. We have also grown to provide transload services to other transportation modes. With over 35,000 loads sent, our experience will benefit your bottom line. A cost efficient trucking system was needed to transport products from B.C. Interior mills to the coast. High volumes were regularly shipped to Vancouver and relatively low volumes were going back. To solve this problem, we designed a trailer lift system that, in less than 10 minutes, combines two complete "Super-B" trains for the backhaul to the mills. In 1987, Westran became the first B.C. reload to have new centerbeam cars built for its use. We incorporated several design changes in these cars which became standard for the industry. More recently, Canadian and U.S. patents were granted for our development of a tie-down system for lumber and panel products on bulkhead flatcars. The design, which eliminates product chafing, gives new life to equipment made obsolete by centerbeam railcars.
Westran Services is located just off Highway 1, an extremely convenient site for truck arrivals and departures. If required, Fraser River barge access is available less than half a mile away. Our premium facilities and emphasis on customer satisfaction have earned us the respect of forest product manufacturers and distributors throughout North America. They rely on our ability to provide a seamless transaction in dealing with railroads, trucking lines, customs documentation, and railcar supply.
