Canadian Pacific and Hapag-Lloyd AG today announced an additional call into Port Saint John, New Brunswick, via a seasonal extra loader in another step for the growing Atlantic Canada port.

The additional call follows the companies' inaugural service call into Port Saint John in May 2021, connecting via CP rail service to inland markets in Canada and the United States.

"Port Saint John offers a congestion-free gateway to Canadian and U.S. markets," said CP Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer John Brooks in a press release. "In combination with DP World, CP's East Coast Advantage provides the fastest and most reliable transit into Montreal, Toronto and Chicago."

CP regained access to Port Saint John in June 2020 with its acquisition of the Central Maine & Quebec Railway, which has connections with the Eastern Maine and New Brunswick Southern railways.

Port Saint John is Eastern Canada's largest port by volume and has a diverse cargo base, handling an average of 28 million metric tonnes of cargo annually, including dry and liquid bulks, break bulk and containers.
