The Port of Montreal saw the arrival of the MSC Melissa earlier this week. Docked at the Viau Terminal before heading back to Europe, the 6,730 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) container ship measuring 303.89 metres long and 40 metres wide the MSC Melissa is the largest container ship to sail the St. Lawrence River.  The new Viau Terminal, operated by Termont Montreal was inaugurated in 2021 and is specifically adapted to Post-Panamax class vessels. The port is starting to realize the positive effects of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) on cargo traffic and the sustained internationalization of markets.
