The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) and LOGISTEC Corporation have announced that Viau Terminal will undergo construction to increase its handling capacity by 250,000 TEUs, bringing its total capacity to 600,000 TEUs. The project will help the MPA to accommodate anticipated growth in the container sector, When the expansion is fully operational in December 2020, Viau Terminal will generate 2,500 direct and indirect jobs, as well as $340 million in economic benefits. The terminal will continue to apply new technologies, including electrification and the noise mitigation systems. This is the final phase of Viau Terminal's construction, and was largely funded through investments from the MPA, LOGISTEC and the federal government.
