The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) and LOGISTEC Corporation are pleased to announce that Viau Terminal, which handles about 350,000 containers annually, will undergo a new construction phase to increase its handling capacity. This is its second phase, which continues and completes the most recent container terminal at the Port of Montreal. Its first phase was completed in 2016.After a fifth consecutive record year, steady growth in its various fields of activity and a 9% upswing in the container sector with 1.7 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) handled in 2018, the Port of Montreal is more than ever a hub of global trade.This is why the management teams of the MPA and LOGISTEC (through the terminal operator, Termont Montreal Inc.) decided to launch the last phase of Viau Terminal, which is so successful that it is quickly reaching full capacity, as is the Port of Montreal as a whole.
