The Prince Rupert Port Authority and DP World have signed a two-year agreement to study the feasibility of adding a new container terminal to the Port of Prince Rupert in British Columbia.

The potential project would add up to 2 million 20-foot-equivalent units of annual capacity to the port, "significantly increasing Canadian trade capacity with critical Asia-Pacific markets," according to a DP World press release. CN serves the port.

The proposed terminal represents the continued advancement of the Prince Rupert Port Authority's container terminal master plan done in 2019, which outlined the potential for an additional container terminal, south of the existing Fairview Terminal.

Under the agreement, DP World and the port authority will begin various studies on the proposed site, with a key focus on steps required to minimize environmental and community impact, improve the resilience of Canadian supply chains and ensure the project's full integration into the port's intermodal ecosystem, port and DP World officials said.
