Hapag-Lloyd Dominates Canadian Logistics

Hapag-Lloyd Dominates Canadian Logistics

Hapag-Lloyd remains the market leader among liner shipping companies in Canada. In the past year, the shipping company saw its market share increase to over 18%. Hapag-Lloyd is the largest liner shipping company in terms of throughput volume at both the Port of Vancouver and the Port of Halifax. Hapag-Lloyd handles more containers in Montreal than in Los Angeles and Long Beach combined – the largest port complex in North America.

Deepening the channel is an important topic at the Port of Montreal, as it is in Hamburg. In order to be able to sail the Saint Lawrence River, which is quite shallow in places, with increasing transport volumes, Hapag-Lloyd has included some modern wide-body ships in its Montreal services, which can offer more capacity due to their low draught. Hapag-Lloyd has three exclusive services that connect Quebec and Europe, which call only at Montreal on the Canadian side (SLCS1 and SLCS2 to Northern Europe and MCA to the Mediterranean). Additionally, three Europe services also call at Halifax on Canada’s east coast and six services at Vancouver on the west coast (to/from Asia and Australia/Oceania).

Today’s visit by the Premier of Quebec, Philippe Couillard, to Hapag-Lloyd was conducted as part of the efforts to make the Port of Montreal more efficient and competitive. The Premier learned about the strategic plans for the Canadian market in discussions with the Executive Board and presented the maritime strategy of the Canadian province of Quebec. Following this strategy, Quebec wants to make better use of the economic potential of the Saint Lawrence River and secure it over the long term – mainly in relation to cargo transport and logistics.
