The Port of Sept-Îles and LOGISTEC Arrimage Inc. have handled 50 million t of iron ore since the port’s multi-user dock opened in March 2018. This achievement reflects both the significant growth of the mining industry, and the operational excellence of the teams responsible for meeting demand and optimising supply chain flow.

The 50 millionth t of iron ore, from Quebec Iron Ore’s Lac Bloom mine, was loaded on board the M/V NSU Voyager. The nearly 300 m-long ocean-going vessel, built in 2017 in Japan and belonging to NS United Kaiun Kaisha Ltd, will return to the Port of Oita and the Port of Wakayama, Japan, with a cargo of 197 000 t of iron ore.

“The Port of Sept-Îles has grown significantly since the multi-user dock opened, with its workers operating the facilities with an impressive reliability rate of over 97% since the dock was commissioned. We also want to recognise the success of our clients, Quebec Iron Ore, Tacora Resources, and Société Ferroviaire et Portuaire de Pointe-Noire, which helped us reach this historic milestone. The Port and LOGISTEC teams worked together closely to ensure a reliable export of iron ore to markets,” said Pierre Gagnon, President and CEO of the Port of Sept-Îles.

“These 50 million t speak to the efforts, collaboration, and dedication of the LOGISTEC teams who work day and night to safely serve clients,” added Rodney Corrigan, President of LOGISTEC “Our team has developed cutting-edge expertise and successfully delivered operational excellence, despite growing demand and extreme weather, and I would like to recognise their hard work and dedication, which contributes to the success of the Port of Sept-Îles, a leading world-class port.”
