Hamilton welcomes first vessel of year

April 13 - The vessel Pacific Huron, carrying a load of steel coils from Spain and Italy, has arrived at the Port of Hamilton's Federal Marine Terminals facility, marking the beginning of the Canadian gateway's 2015 shipping season.

"We had a slightly late start as a result of the icy winter, but we are ready for a busy year now that we're rolling," said Hamilton Port Authority (HPA) president and ceo Bruce Wood

"As the season's inaugural shipment illustrates, finished steel is a critical component of the Port's total cargo tonnage," added Wood. More than a half a million tonnes of finished steel passed through the Port of Hamilton in 2014.

Other cargo types have also increased at the port in recent years, said the HPA. "Together with our tenants, we are investing heavily in terminal facilities to handle a wide range of cargo types," Wood went on.

The Port of Hamilton handles 28 percent of all the cargo that travels through the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway.
