Argentia is ideally located for global markets. North America and Europe are the most affluent markets in the world, and Argentia is strategically located in relation to both. Shipping companies, like Eimskip of Iceland, are already using Argentia as a key centre for world-wide container forwarding.
Argentia Harbour is located on the east side of Placentia Bay, 130 km (80 miles) southwest of Newfoundland and Labrador’s provincial capital of St. John’s. The harbour is entered between Low Room Point and Broad Cove Point and extends 3 kilometres in length southwest to the head of Sandy Cove. The navigation season is year-round. Argentia has three wharf complexes that can be utilized by shippers: the Navy Dock; the Marine Atlantic Terminal with its roll on/off ramp facility; and the refurbished Fleet Dock, designed to meet many shipper’s needs.
