By crossing the downstream limits of the Port of Montreal at Sorel on January 1, the Ottawa Express became the first ocean-going vessel to arrive at the port without a stopover in 2018.

The Ottawa Express, a containership operated by German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd, left the Port of Liverpool, England, on December 21.

The 245-meter-long boxship docked at Berth 77 at Cast Terminal operated by Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership.

On January 3, Captain Rakesh Kumar will receive the Gold-Headed Cane, a trophy awarded each year to the Master of the first ocean-going vessel to reach the Port of Montreal without a stopover.

Operated by the Montreal Port Authority (MPA), the Port of Montreal is the second largest port in Canada. It handles containerized and non-containerized cargo, liquid bulk and dry bulk. The MPA also operates a cruise terminal and a port center.
