Halifax gets it there

Make Halifax a key link in your supply chain with consistent, reliable and efficient service.

Discover why Halifax has become a key link in many shippers’ supply chains using the Route Maps and Transit Time Calculator links below.

It’s not just about the on-the-water transit time that matters. It’s the total transit time that makes the difference for maximizing efficiencies in your supply chain. While it may seem quicker to route Asian cargo, for instance, to the west coast, port congestion, terminal and rail dwell, and inland rail or truck haul are all factors that eat away at any initial on-the-water time savings. And, by choosing a direct call, same-vessel routing one can also eliminate trans-shipment delays often found at intermediate ports.
