Ice road truckers / Winter road transportation

Construction to remote mining/claim locations & fishing lodges

As most of us in the world know that we are one of the leading company providing valuable services to the Canadian northern communities through winter road transportation services.

Winter road is built over land on compacted snow, frozen tundra and bare ground, or on a floating ice cover and our trucks and our truck drivers are passionate about what they do and we offer our services to the world’s most rural areas.

Polar’s winter road transportation facilitates transportation during the winter to, from and within isolated areas in the North where there are no permanent (or ‘all-weather’) roads. They enable supplies (e.g. food, fuel, construction material) to be brought into communities in these areas.
