Canada’s environmentally sustainable solution to create additional container and logistics ecosystem capacity

Strategically positioned to address Canada’s trade capacity needs

The Prince Rupert Port Authority and DP World Canada are undertaking a feasibility study of an innovative new container terminal project at the Port of Prince Rupert.

The proposed second terminal would add at least 2 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of annual capacity to the Port of Prince Rupert, significantly increasing Canadian trade capacity with critical Indo-Pacific markets.

The project represents the most environmentally responsible path to significantly enhance Canada’s Pacific Gateway capacity by delivering true supply chain resiliency.  

With considerable employment and economic benefits bolstering the western Canadian economy, the proposed project will further strengthen the Port of Prince Rupert’s position as Canada’s fastest growing port.

Prince Rupert:
Canada’s Gateway

As Canada’s fastest growing port, we’ve partnered with DP World Canada to pursue a second terminal in Prince Rupert.

By adding at least 2 million TEUs to Canada’s trade capacity, our project will boost Canada’s economy and deliver true supply chain resiliency for Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

A Key Link in the Pacific Gateway’s Logistics Ecosystem

PRPA and DP World are developing North America’s most efficient and comprehensive logistics ecosystem, the second terminal will ensure that Prince Rupert offers the supply chain resiliency that Canada requires.

Inland markets will be served by CN along their uncongested northern routing – providing fast and efficient transit times to key markets.

Indigenous Partnership

Local First Nations are vital partners to the Port of Prince Rupert’s success. As we work through this Project, we will engage with First Nations to share, listen to feedback, and build on the existing success we’ve realized through this approach.
