The Port of Montreal has received a significant boost from Transport Canada with funding exceeding US$1.9 million through the National Trade Corridors Fund, aimed at enhancing supply chain efficiency with innovative technological solutions. A substantial portion of this funding, close to US$1.9 million, is allocated to the Centre Interuniversitaire de recherche en analyse des organizations (CIRANO) for creating a center focused on data science and knowledge transfer in trade and intermodal transportation within the St. Lawrence—Great Lakes corridor. Additionally, up to US$37,100 is designated for CargoM to develop an automated tool for identifying available storage space in Greater Montreal, aimed at improving port territory management and the movement of goods near the Port of Montreal. These projects are set to commence with a symposium on March 21, fostering collaboration among researchers, partners, and stakeholders in the region.
