Molson Montreal

Through 2019 and 2020, Nickel Bros was invited back to assist Molson-Coors, this time in the Eastern Province of Quebec. With short transport curfew windows, and transport passing through multiple jurisdictions and authorities, this project required our permitting, utilities and administrative teams to be on high alert! Thanks to negotiations with the Ministry of Transport, Nickel Bros was allowed to move 4 loads per convoy instead of the standard 2 loads. In addition, our specialized modular hydraulic transporters with lift, lower and steer capabilities allowed us to move cargo  as low to the ground as possible, avoiding overhead obstructions and saving the costs and time of further utilities coordination, while still steering cargo safely around tight single-lane to single-lane turns.
