Port of Price Rupert

The Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako is fortunate to be located near three major shipping ports. The distance from the municipalities in the Regional District to Prince Rupert ranges from 353 to 624 km. Because of this close proximity to these ports a world of opportunities are available to investors and existing industry.
Prince Rupert Port Authority operates the Port in the Prince Rupert Harbour. They are an autonomous and commercially viable agency, governed by a local Board of Directors with full control over all Port decisions, with a mandate to facilitate and expand the movement of cargo and passengers through the Port of Prince Rupert.

Prince Rupert Container Terminal: The 24 hectare (59 acre) facility is the first dedicated intermodal (ship to rail) container terminal in North America with the design capacity to move 500,000 Twenty Foot Equivalent Units (TEU) per year. The 22 meter (72 feet) wharf extension provides a berth depth of 18.7 meters (61.4 feet), enabling the terminal to easily accommodate container ships in excess of 12,500 TEUs. Upon completion of Phase 2 in 2012, the container terminal will have a two million TEU capacity, making it the second largest handling facility on the West Coast.

The Port of Stewart is the most northernly ice-free port located in one of the most mineral rich regions in North America. The Port provides full service to large freighters that carry loads throughout the Pacific Rim. Stewart Bulk Terminals has developed a reputation for quality and efficient workmanship, and their goal is to continue to develop that reputation into a major presence in the shipping industry of the Pacific Northwest.

The Port of Kitimat is the third largest Canadian Asia Pacific Gateway port on the West Coast of Canada..The Private Port of Kitimat is the deepest and closest inland port on Canada's Northwest Transportation and Trade Corridor and offers both inbound and outbound transportation cost savings to shippers.
