The Canadian Ministry of Transport has inaugurated a new breakbulk terminal at the Port of Trois-Rivières, Québec.
Located at Dock 9, the terminal includes new outdoor storage areas, warehousing and upgraded road and rail access. The Port of Trois-Rivières Authority invested C$10 million in the project with a further C$17.3 million from government.
“The industrial fabric of Trois-Rivières includes several businesses that will benefit from the new breakbulk terminal. It also supports the implementation of the Industrial Port Zone whose commercialization work is well underway. This infrastructure could not have come at a better time,” said Julie Boulet, minister for the Mauricie region.
The new terminal is expected to improve competitiveness for shipping on the St. Lawrence Seaway and meet demand from heavy manufacturing companies in the region. It will be operated by Logistec, one of largest port terminal operators in North America.
