More cargo headed to Port of Halifax

A huge consortium of shipping lines is going to be sending more container vessels to the Ceres Group’s Fairview Cove Container Terminal at the Port of Halifax.

The Alliance — made up of Hapag-Lloyd, K Line, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Nippon Yusen Kaisha, and Yang Ming shipping lines — is adding a new route. It will see container vessels from the Western Mediterranean call on the Port of Halifax as their first stop in North America.
