Eimskip moving to Halifax
Icelandic shipping company Eimskip will next week replace calls in Nova Scotia, Canada, from Shelburne to Halifax's Halterm Terminals.
Eimskip's North America route will make its first call at Halifax on Feb. 24 when it will have a revised port rotation of Boston; Richmond, Va.; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Argentia, Newfoundland; Reykjavik; Argentia; Halifax; and back to Boston.
'Halterm is one of few major congestion-free container terminals in North America,' said Eimskip in a statement. 'Our Halifax service will open many new opportunities for Eimskip's clients, such as easy connections with other global ocean carriers, shorter transit times, and fast cost-effective inland rail transportation.'
