MSC And Termont Welcome Justin Trudeau At Visit To Port Of Montreal
In July 2019, at a visit, MSC – Mediterranean Shipping Company and Termont, a container terminal operator based at the Port of Montreal, were honored to host Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and European leaders including Commission President Donald Tusk.
The visit and a summit of talks coincided about the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union. More than about 90 percent of containerized goods traded between Europe and Canada pass through the Port of Montreal, and many of them on MSC’s shipping services.
The crew on the MSC Shaula greeted Prime Minister Trudeau from the side of the vessel, as he toured a container terminal where MSC handles a variety of goods, especially from retail and manufacturing sectors.
Year-round fast, direct and economical access is provided by Termont to major markets in central Canada and the U.S. It comes under one of 62 terminals in MSC Group’s global portfolio of terminal investments, which is overseen by MSC’s subsidiary TiL (Terminal Investment Ltd).
