St. Lawrence Seaway tolls to rise in March

by Canadian Shipper

A 2% cargo toll and ship charge increase will go into effect on March 26, 2002 in both the Montreal/Lake Ontario and the Welland Canal sections of the St. Lawrence Seaway.

The increase is in accordance with the 1998 commercialization agreement with Transport Canada.

However, since for the fourth consecutive year, the SLSMC has successfully met its business plan targets and obligations a 1.5% reduction will be extended to this year’s 2% toll increase.

Customers will be invoiced the full amount, with the rebated 1.5%.
