Outstanding results at Trois-Rivières

Outstanding results at Trois-Rivières

(Posted on 18/06/20)

The Trois-Rivières Port Authority (TRPA) has held its annual general assembly, which was an opportunity to highlight the exceptional results of 2019. Over the past year, the Port welcomed 260 vessels and set a new handling record of 4.2 million metric tonnes of cargo. “Once again, we owe this record-breaking year to our valued partners - our users, workers and customers. Their commitment makes the Port of Trois-Rivières a facility that stands out,” said Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO. These excellent results have generated a net income of $2.9 million for the TRPA.

The Port is an important player in regional, national and international economic development for major industrial sectors such as the aluminum

industry, forestry and agri-food. The Port of Trois-Rivières accommodates 55,000 trucks, 11,000 railcars and

more than 250 merchant and cruise ships annually originating from over 100 different ports in more than

40 countries around the world. It handles over 4 million metric tonnes of traffic and supports more than

2,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs.

Due to the pandemic, the TRPA held its meeting online. Moreover, the contribution of Port

stakeholders to the maintenance of the Port's activities since the beginning of this health

crisis was mentioned from the outset. “I would like to highlight the resilience and exemplary

work demonstrated by the Port's partners and workers, as well as the employees and

directors of our organization. All are working closely together to take the best preventive and

protective measures. Our port community is very closely knit and an exceptional situation

such as the one we are currently experiencing proves it once again,” said Danielle St Amand, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors.

“The Port of Trois-Rivières is very present in its community and has been for many years. It goes

without saying that we had to make a special gesture in connection with the health crisis we

are experiencing. These organizations, which are already under a lot of pressure in normal

times, are currently experiencing additional pressure caused by the pandemic while the

benefits they normally hold are being compromised. We hope to make a difference by

contributing to their mission,” explained Mr. Boivin.

2019 was marked by the implementation of several projects from the On Course for 2030

development plan. Two innovation and environmental investment funds were launched.

Thanks to these envelopes, $2.5 million, spread over five years, are available to users and

clients in order to make the Port more competitive while respecting the environment. This

financial assistance is added to the investments that each of the Port's cargo-handling

clients has made, or will make, to optimize their operations and improve their services.
