Canmar Pride, the first of two new ice-strengthened container ships for Canada Maritime, has entered service with a maiden call at Thamesport in Britain. Sister ship Canmar Honour is in final sea trials and will enter service next month.

Both vessels - built in South Korea by Daewoo Heavy Industries and classed as Lloyd's Ice-Class 1A - will serve the year-round North Atlantic trade via Montreal.
