Sept-Îles 40 year record

Sept-Îles 40 year record

(Posted on 11/12/20)

The Port of Sept-Îles has announced that it has already shipped 30 million tons of goods this year, with a month still remaining in 2020. This is the highest volume shipped since the golden age of the 1970s, when the Port was the second busiest in Canada.

This important milestone is all the more noteworthy for the Port in these pandemic times, when it is so vital to maintain international trade and economic activities, and when the resilience of individuals is so crucial to weathering the global crisis.

Behind each and every one of the tonnes of goods handled this year are men and women working at every level in the logistics chains that keep the Port running. Together they account for more than 4,000 direct and indirect jobs at the Port and in the surrounding areas.

“Whether they work in mining or the rail industry, at Aluminerie Alouette, in local factories or small businesses, or at the Port itself, they all deserve to be recognized for their contributions to achieving this historic milestone and future growth of the Port,” said President and CEO Pierre D. Gagnon.

The symbolic 30 millionth tonne will ship out from the Port on its 45-day trip to China aboard the C. VISION from Quebec Iron Ore.

Boasting diverse, state-of-the-art facilities, the Port of Sept-Îles is North America’s largest ore-handling port, with an anticipated volume of close to 35 million tonnes for 2020. The port facilities at Sept-Îles play a vital and strategic role in the economy of Eastern Canada.
