Spruce Grove, AB -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/18/2014 -- The North American trailer industry is highly specialized. Only a number of companies offer such services regionally and Entrec, a leading provider of heavy lift and heavy haul services, has been rolling out plans to stay ahead of the game. Entrec’s unparalleled product customization and increased stability in moving, loading and unloading large scale equipment have been recognized and admired by the industry not only in Canada but in the whole American region. The company’s innovative equipment gives them higher competence over its rivalries.
Entrec has a fleet of hydraulic platform trailers that are highly flexible and customizable allowing easy configuration for load specification.
2 File Configuration
Entrec owns a goldhofer hydraulic platform trailer that is designed to be assembled in multiple configurations of either lines or files using 2, 3, 4 and 6 modularized axle line sections for any specific requirement. A typical configuration for most module transport is 2 file configurations. Goldhofer space decks can accommodate from 30 feet to 150 feet in length and width of about 22 feet. If combined with Entrec’s customizable trailers, efficiency can be achieved using fewer axles plus maximizing equipment availability.
3 or more Configuration
Goldhofer hydraulic platform is also capable of configuring 3 and 4 file configurations reducing the cost in equipment needed. These configurations can transport large scale vessel such as oil sands, natural gas and process plant scope requirements. These platform trailers have the capacity to self-load and unload equipment.

To facilitate this large scale transport, Entrec was able to shut down Edmonton International runway to make the process smooth and efficient. Among its ground breaking transportation feat includes moving an oil sand facility with dimensions of 30 ft. width by 300 ft. in length and total weight of 872,000 pounds. Another one was moving a 2-storey dormitory measuring 125 ft. height by 24 for width and 25 ft. height without any scratches.
