Ports of Indiana and Port of Trois-Rivières have formed a first-of-its-kind marketing partnership and will conduct a jointly-funded study to explore new maritime shipping opportunities.

“We’re excited to partner with Port of Trois-Rivières to explore new market opportunities for better connecting our ports, and expanding economic opportunities for both Indiana and Quebec,” said Rich Cooper, CEO for Ports of Indiana. “Our ports share an entrepreneurial approach to new business development and a determined focus for providing logistics solutions for bulk and breakbulk shipments on our waterways.”

“We believe there are potential synergies in the industrial sectors surrounding each of our ports and that the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Seaway can provide logistics solutions for developing new business connections in Indiana and Quebec,” said Gaétan Boivin, President & CEO, Trois-Rivières Port Authority.
