Rupert on the pulse

The Port of Prince Rupert has announced plans for a new facility for receiving agricultural crops in bulk for transloading to containers and then export through its Fairview Terminal.

The Port of Prince Rupert has reached a deal with Ray-Mont Logistics to develop an integrated logistics and container loading operation at the south end of the Ridley Island Industrial Site on the recently-constructed Road, Rail and Utility Corridor.

“The operation will involve pulses and cereals (such as lentils, peas, beans, soybeans, flax, and wheat) as well as other specialty agricultural crops transported in hopper cars by rail from Western and Central Canada and the US Midwest. The cargo will be transferred to ocean containers for export via the Fairview Container Terminal, which is currently undergoing expansion,” the port said in a statement. 

“It is our pleasure to be working with the Prince Rupert Port Authority and its partners to establish a new transload facility in the Port of Prince Rupert, and continue to pioneer efficient services for connecting North American crops to overseas customers,” said Charles Raymond, President & CEO of Ray-Mont Logistics International. “Our core values of quality, flexibility and innovation are reflected in the strategic vision being executed by the Port of Prince Rupert, and we look forward to adding this valuable service to the Prince Rupert supply chain later this year.”

When completed the ten-acre facility will include a rail loop corridor with a capacity in excess of 100 railcars, a grain dumper pit, a conveyor system and employ approximately 40 people. The agricultural products will be sent to Prince Rupert by shippers in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and further inland, to be unloaded at the facility via a conveyor unloading system. Raymont currently operates similar facilities in Montreal and Vancouver. 

IDL Projects, on behalf of Coast Tsimshian Northern Contractor Alliance, will begin clearing the site this week and the new transloading facility will be operational in time for the 2017/18 crop year this fall.

“We’re excited to partner with Ray-Mont Logistics to create a Canadian trade solution for high-value, high demand agricultural products,” said Don Krusel, President and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority. “This exciting development is another important step advancing the expansion of intermodal logistics services with our partners CN and DP World to meet the growing demand of Canadian exporters seeking to capitalize on the advantages of the Port of Prince Rupert in reaching their global markets.”

Fairview Terminal is currently being expanded with the addition of a second berth and a larger yard to accommodate RTG stacking. Annual capacity will increase from 850,000 TEU to 1.3M TEU when the expansion is completed August.
