Brock Solutions has become a member of the Association of Canadian Port Authorities (ACPA) as it looks to expand its business network and continue to provide innovative solutions to its Canada-based customers.
In a statement, Brock Solutions said the ACPA represents 17 port authorities in Canada and strives to create “strong sense of community with like-minded organisations and partners”.
ACPA’s members include ports from every main trade hub in the country.
Joining the ACPA is the latest step forward Brock Solutions, , which specialises in engineering and real-time solutions for the transportation and logistics industry, has taken to encourage technological innovation in the maritime sector and wider supply chain.
Earlier in January 2021, it became an official business partner of IT Partner Group, a consortium of companies which provide solutions for the logistics industry, including ports, terminals, agencies, freight forwarders and stevedoring companies.
Container ports and terminals have become an increasingly important part of Canada’s economy in recent years and the country’s biggest hubs have made significant efforts to improve the national supply chain.
In December 2020, GCT Canada completed a major rail yard expansion as part of the $232 million Deltaport Terminal and Rail Improvement Project.
That followed the announcement in October 2020 from the Port of Halifax that it completed and opened the deepest container berth in Canada and had installed new Super Post-Panamax container handling equipment to handled larger vessels.
