Marine Transportation Services

GNWT Marine Transportation Services is your solution to move bulk petroleum and deck cargo to Mackenzie River and Western Arctic coastal destinations. With terminals located at each end of Canada's longest river and joined to Alberta by rail and road, MTS operates a fleet of eight high powered shallow draft tugboats through Canada's Northwest Territories to the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut and the North Slope of Alaska.  Fully equipped to deliver materials to unimproved shallow harbors and remote locations, MTS transports large modular and project cargo by tug and barge to resource exploration and production sites for the mining and oil and gas sectors.

MTS offers annual scheduled service to the communities of Łutselk’e, Tulita, Norman Wells, Kasho Got’ine, Inuvik, Tuktoyaktuk, Sachs Harbour, Paulatuk and Kugluktuk.  Other locations may be served on a charter basis or through alternative arrangements.
