Container service to and from the ports

Armour has invested in the facilities, equipment and personnel to serve the Halifax port with a full range of services

Our terminal in Halifax, Nova Scotia was designed to serve port activities. The 250,000 sq. ft. facility sits on a 45 acre yard that allows ample room for container storage. We have a container stacker on site to load and offload containers within our extensive chassis fleet. Officially designated as an inland container pier, we are able to work with any type of ocean container both dry and temperature controlled, standard and high cube and offer container stuffing and destuffing.

Our bonded sufferance warehouse features 54 doors on our cross dock facility and another 49 doors on our logistics building. We serve both Halifax piers (Halterm and Ceres) and customers realize immediate cost savings by moving their containers from the more expensive port storage facilities.
