There is nothing we can’t handle: QSL’s reputation of excellence arises from our capacity to efficiently handle any type of cargo.



Our century-long bulk know-how finds its roots at our main bulk handling facility, QSL’s Port of Quebec Beauport Terminal. This Terminal offers a draft of 49 feet (15 meters) that allows vessels carrying up to 145 000 metric tonnes to discharge or load product at the Port. No other Port on the St. Lawrence River / Great lakes axis boasts such a draft combined with the ability to both discharge and load ocean-going vessels of this size. As such, this QSL’s terminal has established itself as the only high draft, multi-user, multi product bulk transloading terminal.

This expertise enables us to offer our clients state-of-the-art bulk handling and complementary services across our entire network, for all types of bulk commodities.
