Quebec’s Container Terminal Plan Questioned

Journal of Commerce

“Quebec port’s container terminal plans raise questions of feasibility, Montreal’s future” in the Journal of Commerce features an interview with Professor of Global Studies and Geography Jean-Paul Rodrigue, who is an expert in maritime transport systems and logistics.

The article is about plans to build a $310 million container terminal at the Port of Quebec within three years. Its aim is to attract mega-ships, but the feasibility of the project is being questioned. There are also concerns about the economic impact it would have on the Port of Montreal.

Professor Rodrigue is the author of the forthcoming paper, “Rocking the Boat: A new dynamic for Canadian East Coast container ports.”
