Effective January 9th, 2017, Tropical Shipping will move its port operations to Halterm Container Terminal in the Port of Halifax, Nova Scotia. This move will improve our long term commitment to our customers with improved intermodal connections and terminal capacity designed to meet market demands.  Tropical Shipping’s Canadian service will continue to provide a weekly sailing every Monday from the Halterm Container Terminal, Halifax.

Tropical Shipping’s last sailing from the Port of Saint John will be December 27, 2016.

We want to thank the Port of Saint John and Logistec for their valued partnership and excellent service over the past 15 years.  The Port of Saint John has been a supporter of Tropical Shipping and we appreciate the relationship.

Tropical Shipping has had a presence in Canada for over 30 years.  It is our belief that this strategic move will better align Tropical Shipping now and in the future with the ability to service the Canadian market with the best shipping service to Florida, The Bahamas and the Caribbean. Tropical Shipping will maintain its local office in Saint John, New Brunswick.

Tropical Shipping values the close relationships we have built with our customers throughout our more than 50-year history. Thank you for choosing us as your carrier of choice. For further information, please contact your local sales representative or the Canadian Customer Service Team at 866-767-6576.
