When the bulk carrier ship Brant Built: (2008), or Labrador (2010), or Tundra (2009), or the Chestnut (2010) docks in Toronto with on average just over 19 thousand metric tonnes of sugar from such places as Nicaragua’s Corinto, Redpath Sugar pays the Port of Toronto 55 cents per ton as a port fee to dock the ship and permission to unload. Probably most of these ships were built in China, at the Shanhaiguan Shipyard.
