Salaberry-de-Valleyfield is, without a doubt, a leading intermodal transport hub. Close to 85% of Quebec’s trade transactions with the rest of North America pass through the territory or its immediate surroundings.
Among all of Quebec’s ports, the Port of Valleyfield is clearly located the farthest inland, the farthest from the Atlantic Ocean and the closest to the Great Lakes. Well situated within the St. Lawrence–Great Lakes Corridor, commonly referred to as Highway H2O, the Port is a passageway at the heart of Quebec, Ontario and the U.S.
The port area is located at the crossroads of the Montréal–Toronto Trade Corridor—the busiest in all of Canada (highways 20 and 401). Note that highways 20, 30 and 40, which are accessible via A-530, connect Salaberry-de-Valleyfield to routes 15, 417, 401 and 87, as well as 91 in the U.S.
Distance between Salaberry-de-Valleyfield and a few major locations and cities:
|Aéroport Montréal-Trudeau||51 km|
|Aéroport Montréal-Mirabel||98 km|
|New York||600 km|
Established in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, railway companies Canadian National (CN), Canadian Pacific (CP) and CSX cover three countries—Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. And, with the introduction of the CSX intermodal terminal in Perron Industrial and Port Park in May 2015, Salaberry-de-Valleyfield has firmly positioned itself as the Ontario–Quebec trade corridor’s strategic gateway to the U.S. and Mexico. This 36-hectare terminal is located in proximity to the Port of Valleyfield, allowing for easy access to road, railway and maritime transport. Its transhipment capacity is 110,000 containers per year.
Thanks to the Montréal–Trudeau (YUL), Montréal–Mirabel (YMX) and Montréal–Saint-Hubert–Longueuil (YHU) airports as well as the Plattsburgh (PBG) airport in the U.S., the region is equipped to handle air transport for any and all types of goods.
