Maher Melford Terminal is developing a 315-acre container terminal and intermodal rail facility on Canada's east coast. The privately-owned terminal will be located on a 14,000 acre industrial reserve on the Strait of Canso, Nova Scotia. Strategically situated on the great circle route, Maher Melford will be the closest east coast port to Europe and Asia via the Suez Canal. With zero air draft restrictions, ice-free and navigational water depth exceeding 90 feet (60 feet at the berth) the Terminal will be one of the few North American East Coast ports capable of handling the world's largest current and forecasted container-ships.
