July 2012- Kangiqsualujjuaq, Nunavik, Qc, Canada.
The rumors has been running from sometime. The cargo ship was about to arrive. Late last night it was anchored in the bay and the first containers were soon on the dock. As the ship can only deliver supply when the tide is high, the rest will wait to tomorrow. Already, a couple of new cars and truck were delivered. It’s like Christmas.

The ship has left Montréal five days prior to arriving in the Ungava. They have made a first stop at Deception Bay before stopping here. They have nine villages to stop. The schedule for delivery depend on a many factors, like high tides, date of supply expected by client, availability of supply to deliver and take back to the South, characteristics of the ships and the route to be done. This ship has a cargo of 17 357 cubic meters of supply, including their own equipment like the barge, the tug boat, the loaders, trailers and fuel for all this.

Out of this, 3103 cubic meters were expected in Kangiqsualujjuaq. Somebody from the community inspect the cargo with the foreman then everything is unloaded to the shore. Than the loaders drivers distribute everything at the client’s doorstep.
