Car Carrier at Pier 9

Car Carrier at Pier 9

The car carrier Toscana tied up at pier 9 over night. The lay down area is currently obstructed with drill pipe, and she is showing no departure time so she may be waiting for the area to clear.

Car carriers typically offload cars at autoport, and heavy equipment at the Ocean Terminals, though the odd stop at Fairview Cove is not unheard of.

In 2015 the Glovis Century offloaded a portion of her cargo so she could sail to Montreal to pick up some military equipment bound for Europe.

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
