Teams from the Montreal Port Authority were elated to welcome the first call of the CMA-CGM MONTREAL on May 25. With a length of 200 meters and a capacity of 2,500 TEUs, this vessel named after Quebec’s largest city will link the Port of Montreal to the markets of Northern Europe.

To mark the occasion, a plaque was presented to the ship’s master Capt. Arcenal Plaza Alnes upon his arrival at Cast Terminal. The MPA is also very pleased with the arrival of several new
vessels, providing increased capacity and better fuel efficiency, including the Vistula Maersk, the Vayenga Maersk and the MV Nukumi.

“The Port of Montreal is delighted with the entry into service of the CMA CGM MONTREAL, further proving CMA CGM’s commitment and how strongly our trade ties unite us. The Port of Montreal continues to be an attractive competitive option, a reliable and fluid port that efficiently serves markets in Quebec, Ontario and the U.S. Midwest,” said Martin Imbleau, President and Chief Executive Officer of the MPA.

“As a terminal operator, we are always delighted to be a witness to the successes of our partners. Over the last decade MGT have proudly worked with the CMA CGM team who have shown time and again, their dedication to the market and to the supply chain. And we of course look
forward to continue supporting CMA CGM’s growth ambitions,” said Michael Fratianni, President and CEO of MGT.
