Port of Halifax to waive tariff charges for Haiti-bound relief shipments

HALIFAX, N.S — The Halifax Port Authority has announced that they will waive tariff charges for humanitarian relief shipments that are being shipped to Haiti (including direct calls on the island of Hispaniola) following the earthquake that struck the country on Jan. 12. The Port of Halifax currently has several of its 19 shipping lines with connections into the Caribbean market.  


“Our thoughts are with Haitians, and all those that have lost family and friends in this tragic disaster,” said George Malec, vice-president of business development and operations at the Halifax Port Authority. “With our Caribbean market connections for containerized cargo, the Port of Halifax can be helpful by waiving tariff charges for relief shipments going to Haiti as the country recovers.”
