INFORMATION

In 1993 Europe began restricting the import of green lumber from North America. Up until that point this cargo had been carried "on deck" on the breakbulk lumber carriers operating between British Columbia / U.S. Pacific Northwest and Europe, while treated lumber was carried "under deck".

At about the same time two of the major container shipping lines also serving these areas discontinued their services, including their direct calls in the Port of Vancouver, B.C.

Cascadia Container Line Inc History - Shipping Containers

As a result of these two factors, Cascadia Container Line entered into agreements with the lumber carriers to book up the deck space with containers so offering a genuine non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) container service between the West Coast of North America and Europe.

Later that same year we were appointed as agents for Cast in Western Canada and the U.S. Pacific Northwest. We were very successful in helping build Cast Line's business through the Montreal gateway. Effective January 1, 2005 Cast Line was absorbed into the CP Ships Limited group of companies.

Our NVOCC business has continued to grow, providing services to most areas of the world. Our network of quality agents in the Far East, South East Asia, Europe, the Med, Australia, New Zealand, W.C. South America, Central America, and Mexico all help ensure shipments are handled professionally through to final deliveries.
