Halifax, NS - PSA International Pte Ltd (PSA) has completed the acquisition of the only container terminal in Eastern Canada that can handle mega container vessels, Halterm Container Terminal at the Port of Halifax.  Halterm operates three container berths with depth of up to 16 metres and is currently undergoing further berth expansion, including the delivery of a fifth Super Post-Panamax Crane, which will enable it to handle two mega container vessels at the same time in 2020.

PSA International is a world-renown terminal operator with a network of over 50 coastal, rail and inland terminals in 18 countries. "We are excited to welcome Halterm into PSA's global family of ports, as PSA's first coastal terminal in Canada. We look forward to working alongside the Halifax Port Authority, customers, staff and the local community, as well as key stakeholders like the International Longshoremen's Association and Canadian National Railway Company (CN) to further enhance Halterm's capabilities and connectivity to serve the needs of shippers in the greater hinterland of Canada and beyond," said Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO, PSA International.

"With international reach, deep knowledge of the international shipping industry and strong global partnerships, we look forward to working with PSA International, sharing with them best practices and developing new technologies and digital strategies that will position the Port of Halifax for future growth, for the benefit of both our organizations, for Halifax, for Nova Scotia and all of Canada," said Karen Oldfield, President and CEO, Halifax Port Authority. "On behalf of the port community in Halifax, I would also like to recognize and thank Macquarie Infrastructure Partners for what has been a valuable business relationship over the past many years."
