More Container Business For Port

The Port has landed more business with a second global container connection.

Hapag-Lloyd, a German company, will be offering a weekly service through Saint John in partnership with Tropical Shipping. 

Port Authority President and C-E-O Jim Quinn tells CHSJ News Port Saint John is becoming a powerhouse and is now Eastern Canada's largest port by tonnage.

As of the end of June, container cargo tonnage was up by 100 per cent over the same period last year.

Quinn says a lot of effort has been made to market the port and it's paying off.
