About Us

North Arm Transportation is a comprehensive, full service marine transportation company headquartered on the north arm of the Fraser River with an office in Masset and loading facilities in Richmond on Mitchell Island.

Using the best practices, people, and equipment to operate a fleet of tugs and barges, we provide marine towing, fuel sales, and freight/equipment hauling services to all parts of the BC coast from Vancouver to small, coastal communities.

As a family owned and operated business, North Arm Transportation is well established and backed by more than 50 years of expertise with a skilled workforce built on trust and service excellence.

We are dedicated to personal service and an unwavering focus on meeting our customers’ needs. As a vital link in the supply chain, our expanded customer reach includes land-side deliveries to Haidi Gwaii, and dozens of other coastal locations. The use of ramps on our barges allows us to gain access to areas and provide service to locations that are otherwise inaccessible.

North Arm Transportation operates two regulatory compliant, double-hull, freight and machinery combination barges servicing the coast. Both meet the prescribed standards by Lloyd’s Register and Transport Canada. Unique to Canada, we are the only company nationwide with Class A certification combination double-hull fuel and freight barges.

As a recognized leader in the industry, North Arm Transportation is uniquely positioned with our freight-handling yard and diverse fleet of vessels to support your camp, small community, or project.
