   MPC Container Ships said it had had entered into a $40 million three-year revolving credit facility agreement this week with CIT Group. Drawdowns under the facility may be used toward investments, vessel upgrades or general corporate purposes.
    The company also said that at its annual meeting on Thursday shareholders agreed to authorize its board to increase the company’s share capital by 210,632,500 Norwegian krone, corresponding to 25 percent of the company’s share capital until its next annual general meeting. Shares may be issued for acquisitions or employee incentives.
    MPC owns and leases feeder containerships, focusing on ships with capacities of 1,000 to 3,000 TEUs. It had 69 vessels acquired and taken over as of Dec. 31, 61 fully owned and eight owed through a joint venture. In 2018 its two largest providers of
charter revenue were CMA CGM, accounting for 13.6 percent, and Maersk Line at 11.6 percent.

   

From our hiring practices, which have resulted in nearly 50% of all new hires being minority candidates, to our support of employee resource groups like PA Pride, we will continue to foster a diverse and inclusive environment among our workforce.

The Port of Prince Rupert handled a record 26.7 million metric tons of cargo in 2018, up 10% year-over-year.
