Relais Nordik is a company providing marine transport service along the north shore of the lower Saint Lawrence River. It is a subsidiary of Groupe Desgagnés.

The service is operated under contract to the Société des traversiers du Québec.

M/V Bella Desgagnés performs one round trip per week, typically departing Rimoulski on Monday evenings and heading as far as Blanc-Sablon. As the service primarily caters to freight transport, stops and timing depend on the amount of freight being loaded/unloaded at each port.

The vessel is not a standard roll on-roll off ferry; all vehicles must be loaded into shipping containers and lifted on board.
