Corner Brook Port Corporation

Newfoundland and Labrador


Meeting Objectives

Corner Brook Port Corporation is interested in forming relationships with companies looking to ship goods into Western Newfoundland for both project cargo and containerized cargo. With a weekly service, primarily carrying export cargo, the MSC service offers opportunity for containerized import and export cargo to/from Corner Brook and the region. Our stevedoring partner is well versed in handling non-containerized and breakbulk cargo. As the province plays a key role in the global energy transition, the port is planning an expansion project to ensure it has the required infrastructure to meet the requirements of wind, hydrogen and green energy proponents. We are interested in learning about sustainable development, electrification, green technology and best practices in port development. The port is interested in meeting with companies looking for manufacturing and warehousing facilities with deep sea access, and close proximity to the Arctic.
