CEO’s Message

PortInfo is online !

The Port of Montreal has revamped its communications in 2012. We developed a new branding strategy and launched our new website last spring. And today, the Montreal Port Authority is unveiling the electronic version of its PortInfo magazine. Written for our partners in the transportation industry, this publication previously had been printed and sent by mail to more than 7,000 readers in Canada, the United States and around the world.

This new online version responds to the wishes that a representative sample of our readers expressed in a survey conducted at the beginning of the year. The results have allowed us to better understand your concerns, your interests and your expectations. You told us that you would prefer to receive an electronic version of this magazine over a paper version. Readers will be able to access this new electronic version in a more timely manner and you will be able to better share information. In the process, PortInfo’s content has undergone a major rejuvenation.

The new PortInfo will examine the maritime industry in greater detail while still continuing to provide information on the Port of Montreal’s major news. We begin with a report on containerized cargo traffic. It’s a subject that should interest all of our readers as this crucial sector of port activity, in addition to dry and liquid bulk and cruises, will continue to shape the port on an international scale well into the future.

I hope that you enjoy our leadoff autumn edition, and I wish you good reading.
