Black’s has been involved in flatbed service since the mid seventies.  Commodities moved include, but are not limited to, steel products (plate, structural, rebar, H-pile) heavy equipment, manufacturing machinery, lumber and building supplies and bagged product such as fertilizer and salt.  We have extensive experience in over dimensional loads having moved items as wide as 18ft and as long as 90 ft.  


Our flatdeck fleet consists of one extendable flatbed,  drop decks and 48’ & 53’ flatbeds. Black’s van fleet consists of tridem vans carrying commodities that vary from paper products and insulation to finished construction materials.  We also operate chassis, capable of handling 20’, 40’, 45’, 48’ and 53’ containers (Gensets available).  We do NOT have reefer vans.


Black’s warehouse facilities allow for cross docking and currently handle the transfer of products ranging from lumber to fresh produce.  Sheltered and secure outside storage is also available.


We also occasionally have storage trailer rentals.  Please contact Steve Kilpatrick for availability and pricing.


Black's is now equipped to unload railcars of steel (rebar, H-pile etc) with direct access to our rail siding in our yard serviced by NB Southern Railway!!!  Please contact us for rates or information.
