Our Canadian Ports

Port of Halifax: Year-Round Access to Eastern Canada’s Largest Ocean Port

The Port of Halifax is the closest port to Europe. Being ice-free 365 days of the year with a bare minimum of tides allows the vessel owner to save nearly 30 hours of direct shipping time while offering an infrastructure that can handle the largest of vessels. Our terminal operation is comprised of experienced and dedicated professionals who supervise all phases of the operation as our skilled employees discharge and load three different types of cargo. General cargo, such as heavy pipes, wire, and steel rails, used to build infrastructures like bridges, roads, airports and hospitals, are commonly moved through our terminal. We also handle sensitive commodities such as nickel and sulphites as well as bulk cargoes like wood pellets and grain shipments. Heavy lift and project cargo can weigh 50 to 200 tons and includes shipments of electrical power generators and transformers for utilities, train locomotives for transporting goods, and offshore drilling installations for the oil and gas industry.
