Collaboration propels Port of Trois-Rivières activities and development

The Trois-Rivières Port Authority (TRPA) today held its Annual General Meeting, which was an opportunity to highlight the results and achievements of 2023. Over the past year, the Port welcomed 272 vessels, including 28 cruise ship calls, and recorded cargo traffic of 4.2 million metric tonnes, bringing net earnings to $4.15 million.

“For many years, collaboration has been at the heart of the Port of Trois-Rivières’ activities and development, and 2023 is no exception. Whether it’s with our handlers, who constantly surpass themselves to make the Port more competitive, our various partners, who make our major projects possible over the coming years, or with the Trois-Rivières and Mauricie communities, which we support annually, a lasting collaborative relationship unites us for the benefit of our community,” said Véronique Néron , Chair of the Board of Directors, and Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO .

Ms. Néron  and Mr. Boivin also highlighted the quality of the companies and their teams that make up the port community. Handlers Alcoa, G3 Canada, Groupe Somavrac, Logistec and QSL, customers and collaborators such as Les Chemins de fer Québec-Gatineau, Groupe Océan, Hason and the St. Lawrence Pilots, as well as longshoremen and all those who work at the Port; all are recognized for their leadership and dedication, which enable the Port to achieve exceptional results year after year, and to move steadily forward in realizing its On Course for 2030 plan.

In this niche, the Port of Trois-Rivières has pursued the initatives that will lead it to achieve its vision to be an innovative and sustainable urban port, generating growth, at the heart of a competitive supply chain.

Proud of its urban character, in March the Port organized, in collaboration with CSL and the Coast Guard, a public visit of two ships, for which the visiting slots were quickly taken up.

The partnership with the ports of Montreal and Quebec City also took another step forward when, in May, the three ports jointly announced their participation in the Canadian government’s Carbon Neutral Challenge. This is a voluntary initiative in which the ports implement credible and effective transition plans to make their facilities and operations zero-emission by 2050. In announcing their membership, the ports have committed to accelerating the decarbonization of the maritime industry along the St. Lawrence maritime corridor.
