Van Kam Freightways has an impressive list of mining operation customers, some of the largest active mines in BC.
Van Kam is able to service any mining operator’s transportation and logistics requirements at any stage, whether in support of exploration, construction, start up, production life, to shut down or care and maintenance. Established in 1947, Van Kam is a BC family owned and operated business. We have been directly servicing the Northern BC region since 1984. In 2014 Van Kam constructed a state of the art 20 door cross-dock facility and service center in Prince George. This location can serve as a consolidation/staging area for running schedules of LTL into remote site locations. Other locations throughout the north are available to serve as consolidation points and provide warehousing and inventory management services.
Our drivers are highly experienced and accustomed to the severe weather related conditions experienced in the North. We can safely navigate off road/service roads to site consistently.
Unlike our competitors who may be strong only within a corridor of service points, Van Kam has a vast presence regionally, operating company owned terminals in all major cities within the western region. This translates into more direct service points than our competitors – so all LTL and TL freight can move from “cradle to grave” with a single carrier.
Our modern fleet of equipment includes:
- Step decks, flat decks
- Tandem and tridem 53′ dry trailers
- Tandem and tridem 53′ reefer trailers
- 20′ and 40′ container chassis
- Super B’s
Van Kam is leading the pack with value added services. We cost creatively, drawing on our team’s expertise in transportation and logistics we find synergies to deliver cost savings. Our online services are second to none. Need a daily manifest of your inbound freight? You got it. Prefer to receive your statements in a customized excel spreadsheet automatically generated by our system? No problem.
