The Port of Prince Rupert set a new record for cargo volumes in 2020!

Despite unprecedented challenges brought on by the pandemic, 32.4 million tonnes of cargo moved through the Port last year, up 9% from 2019.

“Thanks to the diversification of our cargoes, and the commitment and determination to maintain a safe working environment through the pandemic by our Port partners and the men and women working in the gateway industry in northern British Columbia, the Port of Prince Rupert’s operations have remained resilient,” said Shaun Stevenson, President and CEO, Prince Rupert Port Authority.

The Whale Report Alert System helps commercial vessels avoid harming #killerwhales. When they're spotted, trusted observers upload info on the sighting to the WhaleReport app. An alert then goes out to pilots and shipmasters in the area, so they can take measures to protect these majestic mammals.

THE PRINCE RUPERT ADVANTAGE

Shortest Pacific Route

The Port of Prince Rupert is North America’s closest port to Asia by up to three days sailing—it’s 36 hours closer to Shanghai than Vancouver and over 68 hours closer than Los Angeles.

Safe Access to Shipping Lanes

Major marine risks are greatly mitigated by the ideal natural features of our harbour. The Port of Prince Rupert has the deepest harbour in North America, is ice-free year round, and is able to accommodate the largest vessels in the shipping trade.

Deepest Harbour in North America

Our deep, wide, and protected approaches enjoy a short, direct access to and from Pacific shipping lanes and oers ample room for anchorages. That’s why our pilot time is 2-6 hours less than other major Northwest ports.
