Over the past several years, the Port of Saint John has undergone a sort of rebirth that coincides with a nearly complete modernization project that saw a significant expansion of its capacity and the addition of two new cranes. The investment of more than $200 million has led to record high volumes of business.
The Port is managed by DP World, one of the world’s biggest Port management companies, and is served by not one but three Class A railways, including one that has direct access to the USA.
Don and David’s conversation with the Port’s CEO, Craig Estabrooks, outlines the details of the Port’s modernization project, the future plans, and growing confidence in the Port which is leading the growth for the City of Saint John.
They also discuss the important role that the Port plays in the renewal of the waterfront with the City of Saint John.
