Carriage of commercial vehicles

CTMA Ferry is committed to providing the best possible service for all its passengers, including commercial customers.

Following is some useful information for commercial customers:

  • The following commercial vehicles may reserve passage: commercial vehicle with lettered trailer 25 feet long or less, non-oversized commercial vehicle (e.g. Econoline)
  • All other types of commercial carriers may not reserve in advance, but must report to the boarding dock, in the waiting line for commercial vehicles, and wait until space is available. For more information on boarding priorities, read our boarding policy.
  • Commercial vehicles more than 12 feet wide can only be boarded through one door. The captain must execute an additional manoeuvre, turning the ship to its side after unloading. This incurs an additional charge of $1,500.
  • Commercial vehicle clearance: 15.3 feet high/12.6 feet wide/78 feet long
