Access to Saguenay is via Highway 175, a four-lane divided highway between the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region and Quebec City (174 km). This modern and secure land link gives Saguenay direct access to the entire North American road network. Moreover, Saguenay offers excellent road network specifically for trucking and oversized convoys.
Located 54 nautical miles from the confluence of the Saguenay River and the St. Lawrence River, the Port of Saguenay is a public port with two deep-water port facilities. Accessible year-round, the Grande-Anse terminal has flexible infrastructure to accommodate the reception of ships of more than 100,000 tons. The Bagotville International Cruise Pier, open from April to November, is home to the world’s largest cruise lines and some prestigious ships, including the Queen Mary 2.
The Saguenay region is connected to the North American rail network. This network allows the transit of a wide range of bulk goods (solid or liquid), general or specialized cargo, which has enabled the Port to forge solid commercial links with more than fifteen countries over the years.
