MARINE / STEVEDORING
With some of the best equipment, first class terminal facilities and wide experience particularly in steel products, Morterm Limited is Windsor area's only full service marine terminal. In combination with unique flexibility, Morterm’s discharge rates – especially for steel products – are unmatched in the Great Lakes.
Located on the Detroit River, Morterm Limited can handle any vessel able to operate in the St. Lawrence Seaway System with its working berths dredged to full Seaway depth of 8 metres or 26 feet, 6 inches.
Morterm Limited is equipped to handle steel, bulks, containers and general cargo with cranage up to 400 tonnes capacity and a fleet of lift trucks ranging in capacity from 36 tonnes steel handlers to 2 tonnes fork trucks in warehouse service.
Morterm’s rate structure is the most competitive amongst the Great Lakes ports with no MEA-type charges and very low Port Authority rates (see the Port of Windsor at www.portwindsor.com).
There is a plentiful supply of trucking in the area and excellent road connections with Ontario's 401 highway system and quick access to the Ambassador Bridge, the busiest border crossing between Canada and the U.S., and from there onto the interstate freeway system.
Morterm has negotiated a number of very attractive truck rates for goods moving from Windsor to the GTA (Greater Toronto Area, roughly Oshawa to Hamilton, Ontario). The rates are based on “back hauls” for truck that have delivered goods in the Windsor/Detroit area and face an empty back haul to the GTA.
