The port of Montreal is only accessible via this St Lawrence river and due to the current water level of the St Lawrence river, ships have a limited loading capacity, so fewer containers can be loaded on board.
Shipping companies compensate this by introducing a Low Water Surcharge and the amount of the surcharge varies per carrier.
