Ice road loads consist of food to fuel and everything in between with fuel being the largest commodity shipped. A diamond mine can have the capacity to store between 50 and 100 million litres for a year.
This sounds like a lot of fuel and it’s done with one massive ongoing delivery that lasts for two months. Tires, equipment, explosives, building materials, and thousands of bags of cement are also on the list of ice road cargo. It’s a race against the clock to get all this freight delivered before the end of the season.
If the season is cut short, everything must be shipped in by air at a very high cost. We put together some ice road freight pictures so you could get an idea of what is shipped by an ice road trucker.
Don’t forget that Truckerswheel is also on Pinterest with thousands of trucking pictures categorized to check out.
