The Federal Saint-Laurent is the first vessel to call the Port of Trois-Rivières in 2022. It docked at the port on January 6 after a 15-day crossing of the Atlantic. The vessel, with its 22 crew members, left the port of Brake in Germany with a cargo of steel. To receive the title of first vessel, the vessel must arrive in Trois-Rivières from an overseas port without making a stopover at another Canadian port and perform loading or unloading operations at the Port of Trois-Rivières. The port presented the captain of the Federal St-Laurent, Shaikh Shahid Ibrahim, and the chief engineer, Arundeepak Rajamoha, with a painting titled ‘Un port, une équipe’, produced by local artist Caroline St Pierre, as well as baskets of regional products.
