Global logistics player, Geodis, has been contracted by the Halifax-based Irving Shipbuilding to provide inbound logistics services for ship construction and repair projects. Irving awarded the contract as it takes part in Canada’s National Shipbuilding Program. 

Geodis said that the contract will be managed by its project logistics team in Canada, with support from the company’s global network of offices. The contract will cover all inbound shipments to ISI facilities in Halifax, Nova Scotia to supply three shipbuilding programs: the Canadian Surface Combatant, Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships, and Halifax Class Frigate Repair Contracts. Utilising Geodis proprietary IT systems, ISI will achieve total asset visibility throughout their supply chain.

“Geodis was selected based on its global presence and industry-leading logistics capabilities, combined with a commitment to engage with local companies to provide this critical service. Accordingly, this contract helps Irving Shipbuilding fulfil its Industrial Technological Benefits obligations under the Canadian Government’s National Shipbuilding Strategy,” said Michael Snow, Irving Shipbuilding’s Director of Supply Chain.

The Canadian Government’s Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) Policy aims to use defence and Canadian Coast Guard purchases to contribute to job creation, innovation, and economic growth throughout the country. To achieve these goals, The National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) has developed a plan to revitalize Canadian shipyards, strengthen the Canadian Naval industry, renew Canada’s fleet, and promote job creation. Irving Shipbuilding’s programs play a vital role in these policies.

“With our extensive experience in the defence and marine logistics sectors, we were able to provide a tailor-made solution focused on very specific client and governmental requirements, in a zero-harm environment,” said Luke Mace, Geodis, Senior Vice President Project Logistics. “We are very excited to be working with Irving Shipbuilding, a company that has constructed over 80% of Canada’s Navy at sea and we look forward to continuing to build our presence in Canada through this partnership.”
