WINDSOR, Ont. – In anticipation for the construction of the new Windsor Essex Parkway, The Detroit-Windsor Truck Ferry has revamped its crossing fee structure.

More significantly, the ferry will begin offering reduced rates for non-hazmat units and over-dimensional loads.

“With scheduled crossing of the Detroit River and competitive new rates for non-hazardous and over-dimensional loads, truckers will now have more options to cross the border in an efficient and effective manner,” says Gregg Ward, vice president of the family-operated ferry.

“The truck ferry has long played a critical role in providing a crossing option for the automotive industry during border emergencies,” he continued. The change in rates will now make the truck ferry a competitive crossing option during all border scenarios.

The ability to reserve capacity means your freight will cross the border on time.”
