I’m thinking about getting myself a new truck and hopper trailer to haul south and north across the border. Any suggestions on what to do crossing the border. I’m thinking a tri axle trailer.

We run cross border freight. If you want to have a conversation about what we do here at ADM, give myself or Brian a call at 800-526-3996. Or you can email me at [email protected] We also move freight between AB, SK & MB so if you want to chat about those lanes as well, just let me know.

I'd stick with a tandem axle if you plan to go across the border, I not sure about Canada but in the US the weight / axle laws change so much from area to area. A tandem is simple 80k lbs everywhere. Unless you plan on running in a specific state/states then I'd read up on there laws and get something that fits

i run loads from both sides, equipment wise if you are sticking to the north ND, MT you would want to look at a tridem or super B and get some over weight permits, anything lower you would want a tandem due to american wieght restrictions such as fert. or out of MN. Tandems are great for their areas but you won't get a rate that makes a tandem work if there ore tridems and super b's to be had.

Permits and brokers necessary and not a good combo.

rate will be fine until you pay the permits and brokers. Ifta for Canada is terrible. Carbon tax lots of ways to go broke with a hopper
