MONTREAL — The Montreal Port Authority is celebrating 50 years of intermodal service at the Port of Montreal. In 1967, the Canadian port handled its first container and in 1968, the port launched a weekly container service linking Canada and the United Kingdom.

In its first year of service, the port handled more than 11,300 twenty-footy equivalent units for a single shipping company. In 2016, the port handled 1.4 million units for six shipping companies. In the past half-century, nearly 35 million container units moved through Montreal’s port facilities.

Both Canadian National and Canadian Pacific serve the port.
