Large port features.
Small port convenience.

One of the greatest benefits with Valport is having so much so close. Everything you need is all nearby—from dry bulk facilities and open staging areas to warehousing and a ro-ro ramp. There are also large areas for manufacturing, construction, project cargo staging, crating, packaging and more.

Location and intermodal access. Just 60 kilometres southwest of Montréal, Valport serves one of Canada’s largest commercial areas. There’s major highway access to Ottawa, Montréal and Toronto. We’re just minutes from the U.S. border. And we’re directly linked with the CN, CP and CSXT railways.

Warehousing and storage. Valport has five major warehouses with 15,000 m2 of combined storage space. This includes 4,500 m2 of food grade storage with advanced climate controls. There are also 77,500 m2 of paved lay down area.

Berthage, depth, lifts, conveyors and ramps. No matter what you’re moving, Valport has the facilities to handle it. Our 1,106 linear metres of berthage can accommodate the maximum Seaway draft. Our fleet of payloaders, lift trucks and shunt trucks can move any type of cargo. Our conveyors can load up to 1,500 MT/H. And our shore cranes can lift up to 125 MT. Plus, we also have a ro-ro ramp.

Stevedoring. Our stevedoring services are second to none. We have the only independent workforce in the region. And we’ve consistently delivered one of the Seaway’s lowest costs/MT.

Land based services. Valport offers an incredible range of land-based services. Our cross docking facilities have rail and truck access. There are over 30,000 m2 available for staging. We can prepare cargo for any type of transport (including air). We have a complete crating and packaging plant. And that’s only the beginning.

Office facilities. Spacious, modern office facilities are available for any special project – short or long term.
