Planning for Growth in Canadian Trade
Container traffic through Canada’s Pacific Gateway is expected to double over the next 15 years. Current projections indicate approximately four million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of additional capacity will be needed to meet west coast container demand by 2030.
The Container Capacity Improvement Program is our long-term strategy to deliver projects to meet anticipated growth in container capacity demand until 2030. The Program looks at the following opportunities for creating container capacity:
- improvements that can be made to existing terminals and infrastructure to accommodate growth, and
- new infrastructure that may be required as demand continues to increase.
Port Metro Vancouver is planning now to ensure capacity is in place to meet the anticipated demand and support Canadian trade growth for decades to come.
