Ogdensburg, NY – The Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority (OBPA) has unanimously approved an agreement to grant the management of its New York port terminal to NASCO (NY), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quebec Stevedoring (QSL).
The northernmost port in the State of New York and one of the closest US ports to Europe, the Port of Ogdensburg is the only US port on the St. Lawrence Seaway.
The new partnership “enhances the positioning of Quebec Stevedoring in the North American cargo handling industry and is perfectly aligned with its long term growth objectives,” the OBPA said.
“We partner with the best. We build solid relations with other passionate industry players. The partnership with Ogdensburg is a perfect example of this dynamic and we foresee good prospects for both parties in the years to come,” said Bruce Graham, Great Lakes Stevedoring vice-president.
Quebec Stevedoring handles over 20 million tons of general and dry bulk cargo through its network of 29 port facilities annually.
Its terminal facilities are strategically sited along the St. Lawrence Seaway up to the Great Lakes and are located in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Chicago, and now Ogdensburg.
Every year, the company’s facilities accommodate more than 1,000 inbound or outbound vessels from all corners of the world.
