Oceanex Increases Container-Line Capacity
Oceanex on Friday announced plans to ramp up its service to accommodate Newfoundland fish processors and international container line customers.
Oceanex, which operates from St. John's and Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Montreal and Halifax, will add 40 new electrical reefer plugs at its terminal facility in St. John's and 20 in Corner Brook, according to Sid Hynes, the company's executive chairman.
During the peak summer months, Oceanex will operate two vessels weekly into Corner Brook. The additional plugs will enable both fish processors and international container lines to store more temperature-controlled containers within a safe and monitored environment.
Oceanex operates three vessels and an inland trucking service from its four operating ports, and is a full intermodal transportation service provider between any point in North America and Newfoundland.
