Port of Sheet Harbour Agency (POSHA), a QSL International Ltd. Company, will manage the Sheet Harbour Marine Terminal. Quebec-based QSL is a key supply chain player in port terminal operations, stevedoring, marine services, logistics and transport throughout North America.
QSL has signed a 10-year lease agreement with Nova Scotia Business Inc., owner of the port facility. Through POSHA, it will manage the capital infrastructure, land leases, collect port fees, land use fees and tariffs. It will also oversee security and community relations. The agreement has an option to renew for a further 10 years if both parties agree.
Situated in the Eastern Area of Halifax Regional Municipality, the port is well suited for marine and resource-based industry, manufacturing and being an intermediate port for ships on their way to another destination. Companies have already established processing and shipping facilities at the port as a competitive alternative to other locations. (Port of Sheet Harbour Agency photo)
