RCC plays key role in massive Vancouver Port container terminal expansionApril 25, 2023
RCC is very pleased that the Federal Cabinet approved the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project on April 20, 2023. The project will enhance container capacity at the Port of Vancouver, ensuring both more capacity and better supply chain resilience following future climate-related events (similar to the November 2021 flooding seen in British Columbia).
The Port of Vancouver, which is by a significant margin Canada’s largest port, currently handles up to $275 billion in goods annually, including many household goods arriving at container terminals. The terminal expansion project, which has the support of the neighbouring First Nations, will increase capacity by up to 60%. The project will help support the long-term growth trajectory of the west coast container trade and support avoiding the diversion of goods to U.S. ports, minimizing new costs passed on to Canadian producers and consumers.
