Plan Our Port
Big ships are calling the Port of Halifax. Cargo volumes are growing, and the shipping community is working hard to build on this momentum. The industry is now in the era of the ultra-class vessel and to keep pace with our competitors, the Port must develop the facilities to welcome the world’s largest ships here in Halifax.
This involves having the facilities and infrastructure to berth two ultra-class vessels simultaneously while maintaining cruise and non-containerized cargo activity.
Planning for a positive future for our port will achieve these goals while continuing to grow Nova Scotia’s economy.
