Thanks to the rail transload terminal on Hamilton’s Bayfront, this new rail service provides importers and exporters in the region with preferential access to the largest container port in Eastern Canada, and a direct connection to more than 140 countries worldwide. As such, this service helps to strengthen Southern Ontario’s supply chain and meet the needs of a rapidly expanding market.

This is excellent news from the perspective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the carbon footprint of the supply chain. In fact, once the service is fully up and running, it is estimated that about 200 truck trips a day could be avoided on the highway network, saving some 70,000 tonnes of GHG emissions a year.

As the first export containers left the new rail transload terminal on Hamilton’s Bayfront last Sunday bound for the Port of Montreal, the MPA congratulates CN, Hamilton Container Terminal and HOPA Ports for launching this initiative benefiting Eastern Canada’s supply chain and businesses.
