Our offices in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, and Winnipeg make it easy to get the support you need while hauling throughout the western part of the country, and with top solutions like the Verydun’s Eagle Tarping System ready to assist, you can count on Kingpin to keep you trucking all summer long! Below, we’ll discuss some of the top benefits of using tarps while hauling. Read on to learn more!

Cargo Protection

The shoulder season between winter and spring, as well as the transition between spring to summer, can be wet and wild across western Canada, which can quickly spell disaster for keeping loads dry and safe. XXXX This spells less headache for you and your crew and keeps clients happy from end to end during transport.

Fuel Efficiency

Did you know that using tarps can actually help your fleet save on fuel? It may not be the first thing to come to mind when you look for ways to lower your overall trucking costs, but our Eagle Rolling Tarps by Verduyn can reduce air resistance and increase your fuel mileage.


Time is money! Our Eagle Rolling Tarp saves you time, gets your driver on the road and keeps your load dry no matter what the weather conditions are. Open truck beds are a hotbed, no pun intended, for safety issues. From improperly secured cargo to incurring the risk of environmental damage, failing to tarp certain cargos can lead to all sorts of problems and headaches. While portable tarps can offer protection, if you’re a long-distance hauler dealing with Canada’s highways (and infamous) weather, you’re far better off looking at something more reliable like Verduyn’s tarping solutions. With the ability to close the tarp in 3 minutes, you gain instant security for your cargo and save countless hours for your truck, trailer, driver and can deliver your load sooner.
