Port of Trois-Rivières sets cargo record in 2022

 

The Port of Trois-Rivières closed 2022 with a record number of goods handled. A total of 4.3 million metric tonnes (MMT) of cargo transited through the Port, surpassing the 2019 record of 4.2 MMT and compared with 2021 it represented a 10% increase in Port activity.

All types of traffic contributed to this increase. Indeed, dry bulk increased from 3.3 to 3.6 MMT, liquid bulk from 234,000 MT to 292,000 MT and general cargo from 343,000 MT to 390,000 MT. A total of 242 vessels docked at the Port in 2022, including 11 cruise ship calls.

“When the Port of Trois-Rivières sets handling records, it is important to understand that it is through the efforts of a large number of partners that the Port of Trois-Rivières was able to achieve its goals: our cargo handlers: G3 Canada, Groupe Somavrac, Logistec and QSL, the longshoremen and all Port workers, as well as our customers and numerous collaborators, not to mention, of course, the Port Authority’s team. I would like to sincerely thank them,” said Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO of the Port of Trois-Rivières. He added that if the Port is able to achieve such outstanding statistics, it is also thanks to the investments that were made within the framework of the On Course to 2020 development plan.

“We are now reaping the benefits of the efforts and investments made under our previous development plan, which ran from 2008 to 2017. On Course for 2020 made it possible to modernize the Port and prepare it for today’s reality, which requires increased productivity while maintaining sustainable development,” said Mr. Boivin.

140th anniversary

The Port of Trois-Rivières’ 140th anniversary festivities were certainly a highlight of the year. Numerous activities were held to help as many people as possible discover or rediscover the Port. Notably, the open house day was a resounding success with approximately 5,000 people visiting the port facilities and meeting with representatives of the various companies working in the Port. The Hommage au Saint-Laurent exhibition, which is still on display at the Pierre Boucher Museum until February 23, is certainly another flagship of the festivities. Created by five Quebec painters, it expresses their vision of the majestic St. Lawrence River.
