The Government of Canada is investing to improve supply chains
The Port of Montreal is excited by Transport Canada’s recent announcement of over $2.6 million in funding under the National Trade Corridors Fund.
These grants are awarded to two projects designed to improve supply chain efficiency through innovative technological tools, helping to strengthen Canadian trade corridors.
Close to $2.6 million is going to Montreal’s Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en analyse des organisations (CIRANO) to set up a data science and knowledge transfer centre for trade and intermodal transportation in the St. Lawrence—Great Lakes corridor. This project is part of CIRANO's activities in data science for trade and intermodal transport. The project will be launched on March 21 at the CIRANO & Transport Canada symposium, with the researchers involved, the partners and all the players in the ecosystem of the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes region.
Up to $50,000 is allocated to CargoM to implement an automated tool for identifying available indoor and outdoor storage space in Greater Montreal. This project will contribute to improved management of port territory and make it easier to move goods in the vicinity the Port of Montreal.
