PORT ST JOHN, Canada: September 13, 2017. Port operator DP World and PanAm Railways are launching an intermodal rail service between the New Brunswick port and Boston via Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Port St John Canada 1According to PanAm Railways executive vice president Michael Bostwick, the link via the inland container terminal at Ayer, MA will provide a viable alternative to customers in the New England area.

"We will provide value to importers and exporters via an alternate gateway into the large consumer markets around Boston and central New England that reduces congestion on the highways. As the vessel calls at the port increase, we will be there to grow our service offerings and train capacity to match those needs," Bostwick explained.

Curtis Doiron, DP World Saint John general manager said an integral part of his company's strategy is to extend its market coverage through competitive intermodal connections in Canada and the U.S. and the new service will provide existing and new customers a viable gateway option.

"The Port is a transition point between marine services and inland transportation networks so the natural geographic advantage of Port Saint John, located close to the U.S. border, is now enhanced," said CEO Jim Quinn.

"Importers and exporters seeking to move goods to and from major centres in the North East now have an option that will get them there faster and move over shorter inland distances," he added.
