Port of Halifax’s green corridor



Lane Farguson, Communications and Marketing Director, Halifax Port Authority


From his waterfront office at the Port of Halifax, Captain Allan Gray welcomes the morning sunrise earlier than any other CEO of a full-service port in North America.

In early January, the skies start to lighten around 7.00 am AST with the first rays of sunlight appearing on the horizon just before 8.00 am. This strategic “first port” location has long been a blessing for Halifax; its “first in, last out” deep-water port status has helped grow the containerised cargo business to record highs in recent years.

Now, it is creating a unique opportunity to decarbonise the shipping corridor between North America and Europe, an opportunity that is actively being explored through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Hamburg Port Authority.
