Montreal’s Supply Chain is Mobilizing

[ April 23, 2020   //   ]

In light of the current situation and concerns over COVID-19, the Port of Montreal is proud to support the various initiatives by stakeholders in the supply chain to support local businesses:

  • Businesses that need storage space for their goods can consult the inventory of storage space carried out by CargoM. A total of 9.76 million square meters (10.5 million sq. ft.) of outdoor space and 1.44 million square meters (1.55 million sq. ft.) of indoor space have been identified in Greater Montreal to meet these needs
  • In addition, CargoM posts a daily update on priority transportation and logistics services, along with sample letters from employers authorizing travel for its essential service employees.
  • For workers unable to benefit from employment insurance and for businesses in difficulty, the Montreal Metropolitan Community (MMC) and the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) compiled the
    support measures offered by all levels of government.
    The Port of Montreal, for its part, is still operating at full capacity to keep goods moving smoothly.
