Wallenius Wilhelmsen moves breakbulk ops to new pier at Port of Halifax
Wallenius Wilhelmsen has recently moved its operations for rolling and breakbulk cargo at the Port of Halifax from Pier 31 to Pier 9C. The move is in line with the development at the Canadian port.
Strategically positioned and with expansive storage space, the new berth location is expected to be a welcome move among customers. Its location closer to the highway allows for easier access to inland transportation and offers more convenient rail access, including three sidings for loading import products to rail, ensuring more seamless transfers for customers shipping to the US.
“I am confident that the transition to Pier 9C will afford our customers numerous benefits including quicker access to both highway and rail access, and will continue our long standing presence in Nova Scotia and great partnership with the Port of Halifax,” says Brian Kalman, general manager ports, terminal, & stevedoring, North Atlantic.
In addition, the new agreement will allow for more reliable berthing availability for Wallenius Wilhelmsen vessels to minimise delays, plus the 11 acres of dedicated storage space will ensure products waiting to be moved will be kept safe.
As this new berth is only for its rolling and breakbulk operations, Wallenius Wilhelmsen will still call at the auto terminal to discharge vehicles for automotive customers.
