JOHNSTOWN, Ontario – The Port of Johnstown and Logistec Stevedoring (Ontario) Inc. have renewed their cargo handling partnership for the next 10 years.

The facility specializes in wind energy components to serve wind farms in the southern Ontario region, as well as dimensional steel products and a wide variety of bulk commodities, including road salt. Products arrive at the Port via the St. Lawrence Seaway from around the world and are distributed to local businesses and municipalities.

The Port of Johnstown is located on the St. Lawrence Seaway, 100 kilometres south of Ottawa, 330 kilometres east of Toronto and 208 kilometres west of Montréal. It is also located at the junction of two major Ontario highways, 401 and 416 (Veterans’ Memorial Highway) and is on the Toronto-Montréal railway corridor.

These transportation links give the Port several ways to access eastern and western Canadian markets. The nearby Ogdensburg-Prescott international bridge allows for convenient access to New York State.

“Working with local and regional businesses is very exciting for us,” said Robert Daley, general manager, Port of Johnstown.

“We help the local and regional economy grow by designing new logistical solutions and improving the carbon footprint of many customers. Having Logistec continue on as our expert terminal operator solidifies our position as a key gateway along the St. Lawrence.”

“We have built a solid relationship with the Port of Johnstown and this has allowed us to fully streamline our operations, and now develop more value-added services in the years to come. We are proud to continue to provide customers with seamless supply chain services they have come to expect, for today and for the future.” said Rodney Corrigan, President of Logistec.

Logistec Corporation is based in Montréal (QC) and provides specialized services in both the marine and environmental industries. Marine services are offered in the areas of bulk, break-bulk and container cargo handling in 38 ports and 64 terminals across North America.

Logistec also offers marine transportation services geared primarily to the Arctic coastal trade, as well as marine agency services to foreign shipowners and operators serving the Canadian market.
