Summary : A marketing partnership is in place between The Ports of Indiana and Port of Trois-Rivieres in Quebec to study the potential for new shipping opportunities.

The ports are expected to launch a market analysis in the next couple of weeks in order to identify possible supply-chain connections between their facilities. The initiative comes as an extension of a partnership that Indiana and Quebec established in 2015.

Ports of Indiana Chief Executive Officer Rich Cooper said, "Our ports share an entrepreneurial approach to new business development and a determined focus for providing logistics solutions for bulk and break-bulk shipments on our waterways.

The Port of Trois-Rivieres is a deep-water port between Montreal and Quebec City on the St. Lawrence River, which operates year-round serving ocean vessels. The Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor offers multimodal connections to the Chicago-Northwest Indiana markets, along with year-round shipments via the 12,500-mile inland river system that connects to 20 states and the Gulf of Mexico.

Gaetan Boivin, president and CEO of Port of Trois-Rivieres said, "We believe there are potential synergies in the industrial sectors surrounding each of our ports and that the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Seaway can provide logistics solutions for developing new business connections in Indiana and Quebec.
