Welcome to Salaberry-de-Valleyfield’s Industrial Port Zone (IPZ)!
Salaberry-de-Valleyfield is a key player in the Continental Gateway, an essential part of Canada’s multimodal transport system. The City serves as a maritime interconnection between the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway; a railway interconnection thanks to the presence of major carriers such as CSX, CN and CP; a road interconnection thanks to major highways (A-30, A-20, A-40, A-10 and A-15) and, lastly, an aerial interconnection due to the proximity of the Montréal-Trudeau, Montréal-Mirabel, Montréal-Saint-Hubert-Longueuil and Plattsburgh (U.S.) airports. Considering this, it is clear that the Port of Valleyfield is truly at the heart of a transport and logistics hub!
Why create an industrial port zone?
Because industrial port zones foster transport intermodal connections in specific areas. Because the Perron industrial and port park is a hive of activity. Because we are equipped to offer port services of high added value. And, because we have the railway infrastructures already in place.
Manufacturing companies who choose to establish themselves in the Port of Valleyfield benefit from countless competitive advantages:
- High-performance port, road and railway infrastructures perfectly adapted to their needs;
- Lots available for development (140,000 square metres);
- A booming industrial port park conducive to creating synergy between various industries;
- Industrial-calibre energy resources;
- A business environment that fosters mutual help and knowledge sharing.
