Fairview Container Terminal

North America's Fastest Growing Intermodal Terminal

Fairview Container Terminal is a dedicated intermodal facility, purpose built to provide a high-velocity gateway for transpacific container trade. Operated by DP World, the terminal anchors the fastest and most reliable trade corridor on the west coast, providing shippers a significant advantage over alternative gateways.

The terminal features a single marine berth capable of accommodating 20,000 TEU container ships with direct and unimpeded access from international shipping lanes. On dock rail adjacent to the berth provides efficient intermodal operations in building trains of up to 12,000 feet.

Integrated scheduling and real-time communications between the shipping line, DP World and CN Rail result in unparalleled terminal velocity and seamless transfer of containers between vessel and train. Served by CN Rail’s North American network, the Port of Prince Rupert has fast and efficient connections to central Canada and the US Midwest, saving shippers time and money.
