Melford Terminal will be the closest deep-water terminal in Mainland North America to Europe and the Suez. The terminal will employ state-of-the-art technology, modern labour rules, innovative intermodal options and emerging security measures in one of the lowest-cost environments in North America. The geography, ice-free deep-water and the availability of thousands of acres of industrial land which can be developed adjacent to the terminal provides a unique and unmatched opportunity.< Back to initiatives list
