Canada Maritime’s Northern Service Passes 3M

Monday, October 07, 2002
Three million teus in 18 years. That is the impressive record achieved by Canada Maritime's Northern Service since it started operations in 1984. "It is quite amazing to think that our Northern Service has carried three million teus since we started in 1984," said Terry Burrows, Senior Vice President, CP Ships with overall responsibility for Canada Maritime. "Just thinking about the variety of goods that will have been carried and the number of customers for which we have moved cargoes is quite remarkable. "Laid end-to-end, three million teus stretches nearly 11,250 miles, which is not far short of being half way round the world!" he added. "It all represents a tremendous commitment to the regional trade between North America and Northern Europe and an achievement in which we take great pride." Today, Canada Maritime's Northern Service offers three routings which all operate weekly through the Montreal Gateway. Route 1 links Montreal with Thamesport, Antwerp and Le Havre; Route 2 links Montreal with Antwerp and Hamburg and Route 3 links Montreal with Liverpool. In addition, Canada Maritime's Mediterranean Service consists of two loops, each offering weekly sailings from Montreal to ports throughout the Mediterranean and Portugal. "A further indication of our ongoing commitment to shippers in the North America - Europe trade will be the delivery next year of two new vessels of 4100 teu nominal capacity which will be named Canmar Spirit and Canmar Venture," commented Burrows. "They can help with the next three million teus!"
