Companies in the news:
Amazon: Amazon says it will open five facilities in Quebec that will create more than 1,000 jobs and speed up customer deliveries. The U.S. online retail giant says it will add two sorting centres and its first three delivery stations in the province. Its largest sorting centre in the province, a 48,300-square-metre facility, will open this year in Coteau-du-Lac, about 60 kilometres west of Montreal, and will create at least 500 jobs. Another centre will open in Longueuil, on the south shore of Montreal. Amazon’s first sorting centre in Quebec opened last year, creating 500 jobs.
St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp.: Cargo shipping on the St. Lawrence Seaway remained flat last year, despite COVID-19’s harsh toll on demand for many products shipped along the waterway. Nearly 38 million tonnes of cargo were shipped last year along the route stretching from the lower St. Lawrence River to the Great Lakes, with record shipments of grain offsetting a decline in liquid bulk, dry bulk and iron ore, the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp. said. In total, cargo shipments were down nearly 1.7 per cent in 2020 compared with 2019. Dry bulk and iron ore dropped by 9.4 per cent and 12.4 per cent respectively, year over year, while grain increased 27 per cent.
