After a record year marked by a 9 per cent increase in the number of containers transiting through the port of Montreal, Montreal Port Authority (MPA) welcomes COSCO Shipping Lines which, starting in April, will connect Montreal with several northern European cities, such as Antwerp, Bremerhaven, Le Havre and Liverpool. COSCO Shipping Lines’ containers will be handled at the terminals of Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership.

“We welcome the arrival of COSCO Shipping Lines. This excellent news reaffirms the Port of Montreal’s place as the preferred gateway for freight transport between Europe and North America’s industrial heartland,” said MPA President and CEO Sylvie Vachon.
