New shipping service connecting Montreal to Europe

The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) was happy to underline the new service connecting the Port of Montreal to the Mediterranean market recently announced by Germany's Hamburg Süd Group.

Launched to meet the growing demand of importers and exporters on both sides of the Atlantic, this new service will connect the Port of Montreal to the ports of Algeciras and Valencia in Spain, Fos-sur-Mer in France, and La Spezia and Salerno in Italy. The first ships departed July 2 headed west and ship departures headed east will start July 19.

With this new partnership, the Port of Montreal can now count on a sixth international line in its trading with the world. The Port of Montreal is the only container port on the St. Lawrence and the largest port in Eastern Canada. It has five container terminals. Several regular services operated by the largest shipping companies in the world now connect Montreal to all the countries on five continents.
