Application Process for New Cargo Incentives

March 17, 2008

Effective with the opening of the 2008 navigation season the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) has instituted a number of new incentive programs, to assist their stakeholders in developing new business and to encourage the growth of Seaway cargo movements.  In addition to a three year freeze in toll rates applicable from 2008 to 2010, the programs consist of:

  • a New Business Incentive Program that will allow for a 20% discount on cargo tolls over the course of three years for commodity / origin / destination combinations approved by the Corporation as “new business”;
  • a Volume Rebate Incentive Program offering a 10% reduction on cargo tolls applicable to incremental volumes meeting a set of criteria.

The full details of the incentive programs are disclosed in our Schedule of Tolls.

To qualify for a program, please complete the application form and submit it to [email protected].

The Market Development team will process your application, and contact you concerning the eligibility of the proposed cargo movement.
