Our project is an export-oriented project. Société Internationale Métallique will sell HBI directly to end users, coordinate the shipments and use best-in-class scheduling tools in its operations in order to guarantee on-time delivery to customers. Shipments will be delivered by ocean freight (when target clientele is located in Europe, Middle East or Latin America) or Lakers (bulkers) via the Great Lakes, train or truck (when target clientele is located in the northern U.S.).
Our reliance on sea transport will be facilitated by the construction of a high-speed, two-way conveyor system that will link our plant to the BWIP loading dock. We will also need to update and add elements to the dock, and these changes will be made in accordance to the new Maritime Strategy of the Government of Quebec.
