HOPA and partners launching Hamilton-Montreal intermodal rail service


Published January 19, 2024 at 2:34 pm

A direct intermodal rail service between Hamilton and Montreal is on its way, thanks to a partnership between Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA), Hamilton Container Terminal and Canadian National Railway.

The new rail terminal and container service, which is expected to dramatically increase supply chain capacity in southern Ontario, will be officially launched Monday at a ceremony at 113 Industrial Drive, located at the northeast corner of Pier 18 at Hamilton’s harbour front.

Executives from all three partners in the project, including HOPA CEO Ian Hamilton and Hamilton Container Terminal CEO Amandeep Kaloti, as well as local politicians and other dignitaries, will be on hand at the launch to provide details of the roles each partner will play in the venture.

The launch and press conference will happen from 10 a.m. and noon.

Hamilton Container Terminal launched their short sea container service in 2021.

Meanwhile, share prices in Canadian Nation Railway stock have been soaring in the new year, hitting a 52-week high of $169.69 a share on Tuesday in anticipation of the launch.
