Mersey firm to boost Canadian port

[ March 11, 2014   //   ]

Liverpool-based maritime advisory firm and consultancy Focus Maritime (North West) is to promote Canada’s Halifax Port in Europe. The Nova Scotia-based port authority wants to strengthen its presence across the continent. Liverpool-based Local Liverpool man Graham Fraser (pictured below) will take on the role of director, business development and growth for Europe. The nearest North American port to Europe, Halifax is a deep, wide, ice-free harbour and one of the few eastern seaboard ports able to accommodate post-Panamax container vessels. The port is served by CN Rail and supports container, bulk and break-bulk cargo facilities with direct access to rail.
