Valport – Consistency improves the relavency of your corporate image


The Canadian Arctic, the rain forests of Brazil and the Sahara all have one thing in common – VALPORT Maritime Services.

You take a postage stamp-sized community with a port along the Great Lakes Seaway, Highway H2O, and you realize that they are far bigger than anyone would think. Apply some metrics to the operation and discover that – legitimately – the port is “Canada’s largest ‘small’ port”. Limelight re-positioned Valport in 2009 just so and year after year the port continues to grow profitably year-after-year. As much as we have done, Valport is only just getting started.

The Port of Valleyfield – located on an island in the St.Lawrence River, outside Montreal. It’s home to one of the largest consolidation points for outbound and inbound breakbulk, bulk, general and project cargo.

Valport came to Limelight to better position themselves for growth – a decade ago. Busy, while other ports have been quiet, Valport was once one of Canada’s best-kept cargo terminal secrets.

Today, the facility is known as “Canada’s Largest ‘Small’ Port”—and news as of late 2017 welcomed another expansion of 500,000 sq feet (33,000M2)— a welcome addition of an extended berth and warehousing prepares the port of larger project, breakbulk handling and bulk cargoes.

The growth hasn’t stopped. By mid-2018 the port enjoyed 19 acres of paved laydown area (the area used for the staging of cargo). Early 2019 an addition 5+ acres have been added. This not only improves capacity and prepares the port for larger projects but helps to increase stevedoring throughput. Cargo is organized and staged in such a way as to decrease handling and movement saving time and money. The underpinnings of a well-oiled modern port facility. There is also a mobile responsive website in development.
