Singapore's PSA International's has renamed Halifax's Halterm Container Terminal "PSA Halifax".
Acquired by PSA International (PSA) in July, PSA Halifax is PSA's first coastal terminal in Canada and currently the only container terminal in Eastern Canada that can serve mega ships.
With 16 metres alongside, the terminal is now extending the main berth, which will enable PSA Halifax to handle two mega container vessels. It is concurrently adding a fifth super postpanamax quay crane by June 2020.
"We are proud of our history dating back to 1969. While developing new capabilities, greater capacity and further strengthening our bench," said PSA Halifax CEO Kim Holtermand.
"Through this rebranding, the Halifax operation, with its longstanding reputation for service quality and a commitment to customer service, clearly positions itself as an important node in the global PSA network.
"Our new name 'PSA Halifax' reflects our port city focus and vision, as well as our aspiration to be recognised among existing and new customers, as Eastern Canada's gateway for global trade in 2020 and for decades to come," he said.
