Record year for Trois-Rivières

Record year for Trois-Rivières

(Posted on 13/02/20)

 The Port of Trois-Rivières, Canada, ended 2019 with a new record for goods handled. A total of 4.2 million metric tonnes (MMT)

transited through the Port, surpassing by 10% the record of 3.8 MTM in 2018.

Solid bulk traffic increased from 3.2 to 3.6 MMT. Liquid bulk remained stable at 0.3 MMT, which

is comparable to the average for the past five years for this industry. General cargo also

remained stable at 0.3 MMT, representing an increase of 36% compared to the average for the

past five years. A total of 260 vessels docked at the Port, including 25 cruise ships.

“We owe this second consecutive record year to our partners, users, workers and customers. It

is through their efforts to optimize operations and increase productivity that we can achieve

such results. We would like to thank them”, said Mr. Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO of the

Port of Trois-Rivières.

Mr. Boivin also wanted to emphasize that this handling record was attained in the context of the

massive hiring of longshoremen over the past two years, which brought challenges in terms of

training and knowledge transfer.

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

2030 development plan.

Last February, the Port launched two innovation and environmental investment funds. For the

next five years, $ 2.5 million, or $ 250,000 per Fund per year, will be made available to port facility

users and clients. Through this initiative, the Port supports its partners so they may carry out and

even anticipate the realization of projects which, in the long term, will make the Port more

competitive and improve its environmental performance, in addition to stimulating regional

economic activity.

“The environment and innovation are cornerstones of the On Course for 2030 development plan.

With these funds, we are introducing concrete means to support our users and customers in the

implementation of profitable projects at the Port and throughout the community”, added Mr. Boivin.

A partnership was also signed in April with the Ports of Mulhouse-Rhin with the aim of sharing

good operational and business development practices, thereby increasing opportunities for all

participants. More specifically, four areas of cooperation were recognized: port governance,

commercial promotion, sharing of innovation and continental outreach. This agreement is part of

the close collaboration approach initiated by Innovation et Développement économique TroisRivières

and Mulhouse Alsace Agglomération in 2017.
