Oceanex- Corner Brook Reaction

Oceanex has stopped shipping goods in and out of Corner Brook for at least the rest of the summer. The company says the amount of goods it’s bringing into port have dropped by thirty per cent. And that exports are down seventy per cent. What will happen instead is that goods will go to the Oceanex facility in St. John’s, and then be trucked to Corner Brook. Oceanex says it will actually mean beter service, as those trucks will be on the road every single day, instead of the once-weekly shipment into Corner Book. Keith Goulding is the president of the Greater Corner Brook Board of Trade.
