“…Halterm is the only container terminal in Eastern Canada that can serve mega container vessels. It operates three container berths covering more than a kilometer of quay length with depth of up to 16 meters.

On January 12, 2019 Halterm Container Terminal received Halifax’s largest container ship to date, the 364m long, 11,400TEU CMA CGM Libra, on its Ocean Alliance South Asia-Halifax weekly service.

It is the first inbound port and the last outbound port of call for North America’s east coast, located only about 50 nautical miles from major shipping lanes (Great Circle Route) from Europe to North America.
