CP and Hapag-Lloyd Announce Additional Service at Port Saint John

Canadian Pacific  and Hapag-Lloyd AG announced an additional call into Port Saint John, N.B., via a seasonal extra loader in another step forward for the growing Atlantic Canada port. This additional call follows their inaugural service call into Port Saint John in May 2021, connecting via CP rail service to inland markets in Canada and the United States.

CP regained access to Port Saint John in June 2020 with the strategic acquisition of the Central Maine & Quebec Railway, which has connections with the Eastern Maine and New Brunswick Southern railways. This vital link to Port Saint John provides the shortest route between Atlantic Canada and North American inland markets, including a 269-mile advantage over our competition to Montreal, Toronto and Chicago, creating value for shippers across North America.

Port Saint John is Eastern Canada’s largest port by volume and has a diverse cargo base, handling an average of 28 million metric tons of cargo annually, including dry and liquid bulks, break bulk and containers. With 56 acres of terminal area, DP World Saint John offers year-round, ice-free access, with a deep draft and no air draft restrictions.
