As the COVID-19 outbreak spreads across the United States, regular travel and transportation is restricted in many jurisdictions. The border is now closed to Canada, except for essential travel, including the transportation of goods. We might continue to see travel restrictions tighten as things progress, but for our truckers, they are working hard to maintain the transport of goods.
After a semi truck loaded with cargo of agricultural tires slips off the semi trailer on Northbound Interstate 5 in Kent, WA, #teamprotow is called upon to clean up the lost cargo. Utilizing a Century heavy duty tow rotating boom tow truck, the roadway was able to remain open as the tow truck worked from the shoulder. The cargo was quickly lifted and rotated to a nearby flatbed tow truck and transported to their Auburn,WA secured storage yard where the cargo was safely able to be reloaded and re-secured in preparation for its final transport to British Columbia, Canada.
