Wash Bay 

Portage Transport features a convenient wash bay on site. Rid your truck and trailer of the build of dirt and grime – and de-icing chemicals and road salt in winter! – and you will extend the life of your equipment. And because Portage Transport specializes in food products and hazardous materials, we know how important it is to maintain the highest level of cleanliness possible. Refrigerated trailers are especially important to sanitize to ensure mildew and mold do not pose a risk any shipment.

How often you wash out depends on the goods you are carrying, but when you need a wash the most to not lose time – and money – on your load, we’ve got you covered. Best of all, our wash bay length is 90-feet long – no need to unhook! Call for rates!

Headache-free hauling can be yours when you let our staff handle all of the logistics of your load. Need your materials unloaded from one incoming transport to another? Does your load need to be divided to ship off to smaller loads headed to different locations?
