Shipping with Rail Service out West

We have now shipped our structures by rail many times since the first time we offered this in 2015, but this is a service we are proud of, to save our customers money and provide the flexibility that Multi Shelters is known for.

One of our first structures we shipped was a 27’x96’ greenhouse to Saskatchewan

Shipping longer distances with our new shipping crate certainly has added possibilities while maintaining quality, convenience and economy.

An added dimension is the rail service that Manitoulin Transport offers to Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver. By going via rail to Winnipeg and then road to Saskatoon, the customer is saving $400 on his freight bill.

This order was shipped July 22 and by August 6 the customer was already producing and growing from the order.


NEW Shipping Crate & Scissor Door

Shipping Crate

We have developed a simpler way for shipping our structures when our truck is not able to get there. This is great news for customers out West or in Newfoundland. Hear what Sleepy G Farm in Thunder Bay had to say!

“In all the years of farming and receiving shipments, this was the most well packed awkward shipment I have ever seen. I already have plans how I can reuse the crates when they are empty. It was a bit challenging in getting it off the truck but it did an excellent job in protecting the product”

**5/19/20 please note with the global situation, and a level of domestic interest and quote requests like we have not seen before, we do not have the capacity at the current time, to quote and ship to the United States. We are grateful for your interest, understanding and patience


The framing of a scissor door consists of 2 vertical pieces of round steel which pivot on the hoop, immediately to the left and right of the ridge. The plastic is fastened to the “door posts” with the MSS roll up strip and along the hoop with the wirelock. The vertical framing will swing out until it matches the top profile of the hoop. This is not a solution for areas prone to significant winds. The advantage of the scissor door is its simplicity and ability to open most of the end.
