The Ports of Indiana and a port agency in Canada have formed a marketing partnership that will study the potential for new markets.
The port authorities said the latest initiative is an extension of a partnership that Indiana and Quebec formed in 2015.
“Our ports share an entrepreneurial approach to new business development and a determined focus for providing logistics solutions for bulk and break-bulk shipments on our waterways,” said Ports of Indiana Chief Executive Officer Rich Cooper.
Located on the St. Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City the Port of Troise-Rivieres is open year-round to ocean vessels.
The Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor provides multimodal connections to the Chicago and Northwest Indiana markets as well as offering year-round shipments via the 12,500-mile inland river system that connects to 20 states and the Gulf of Mexico.
