Port Saint John New Direct Intermodal Service Via Pan Am Railways

A new business development initiative by Port Saint John terminal operator DP World and Pan Am Railways has led to the introduction of a direct intermodal service connecting Saint John and the Boston market.

"Pan Am Railways is excited to announce our partnership with DP World and the Port of Saint John, to provide direct intermodal service from Saint John, NB, to the Boston, MA market via the inland container terminal at Ayer, MA," said Michael P. Bostwick, the Massachusetts-based railroad’s executive vice president & chief commercial officer.  "We will provide value to importers and exporters via an alternate gateway into the large consumer markets around Boston and central New England that reduces congestion on the highways. As the vessel calls at the port increase, we will be there to grow our service offerings and train capacity to match those needs."

"The natural geographic advantage Port Saint John, being located close the US border, is now enhanced by this new Pan Am service into the New England marketplace," Port Saint John CEO Jim Quinn. "Importers and exporters seeking to move goods to and from major centers in the North East now have an option that will get them there faster and move over shorter inland distances. We are pleased to have the partnership of both DP World and Pan Am as we collectively seek to increase business via Port Saint John."
