Bulk leaders join forces in New England

Bulk leaders join forces in New England

(Posted on 11/06/19)

Logistec has announced that it has entered into a cargo handling operational agreement with Waterson Terminal Services at the Port of Providence’s ProvPort, New England’s premiere deepwater facility, to provide marine services. This agreement brings together two key marine industry leaders specializing in handling varied cargo including bulk commodities, steel, lumber, general cargo and wind energy components.

Montreal based Logistec offers bulk, break-bulk and container cargo handling services in some 37 ports and 63 terminals located in North America as well as marine transportation services geared primarily to the Arctic coastal trade and marine agency services to foreign shipowners and operators serving the Canadian market.

“We are very pleased to be collaborating with Waterson Terminal Services at ProvPort,” explained Rodney Corrigan, President of Logistec Stevedoring Inc. “Our vision and values are well aligned. Like Waterson Terminal Services, Logistec is known for working closely with its customers and supply chain partners to find the best solutions.”  Logistec and Waterson Terminal Services are also both certified members of the Green Marine Environmental Program, an important voluntary initiative to surpass regulatory requirements in the maritime industry. 

Chris Waterson, General Manager of Waterson Terminal Services, stated, “As the exclusive port operator and manager of ProvPort since 2007, Waterson Terminal Services has established excellent working relationships with our customers. With this agreement, we will be able to leverage the ports’ strategic location and Logistec’s vast network to access international and domestic options for our tenants and customers.” 

This agreement brings Logistec’s expanding operations to 63 terminals in 37 ports across Canada, the U.S. East and U.S. Gulf Coasts. Logistec boasts over 65 years of service excellence in the marine industry and more than 35 years serving customers at ports in states neighbouring Rhode Island.

Logistec and Waterson Terminal Services’ unique customer-first approach to terminal operations will translate into cost-effective trade options for new and existing customers, enabling them to reach new markets. They will begin their joint operations this month.
