Up For The Job

We’re known for not backing down from a challenge. This mindset has allowed us to extend our scope of service to other industries. From forestry to construction and energy, we’ve got the know-how and the equipment to get the job done safely and efficiently.

Forestry Sector

Transportation of forest products has been vital not just to Hodder’s growth, but to the entire marine towing industry. For decades we have catered to coastal saw and pulp and paper mills, towing materials for manufacturing and processing.


In Canada, the foundation of all construction relies on essential materials such as rock, sand, gravel, and aggregate. We have long been dedicated to serving the construction industry by transporting these crucial resources from coastal quarries to regional processing facilities. Furthermore, we provide towing services for equipment, heavy lift, and general-purpose crane barges.


We specialize in short-sea shipping of a wide range of bulk cargo, including refined petroleum products, groceries, mobile homes, and other supplies such as skids, flats, boxes, crates, tires, lumber, equipment, new furniture, dangerous goods, and more.
