CN to open Prince George transload/intermodal terminal in fall

Canadian National Railway Co. plans to begin operating a $17 million transload operation and intermodal terminal in Prince George, British Columbia, by fall.

The complex will handle containerized export products moving to and from Asian markets through the new Port of Prince Rupert. The transload facility will feature an 84,000 square-foot warehouse and 10 acres of outdoor storage, while the intermodal terminal will have an initial capacity of 500,000 twenty-foot equivalent units.

“The facility is ideally located to tap backhaul export opportunities, filling empty containers moving to Asia via Prince Rupert with lumber, panels, woodpulp and paper, as well as ores, plastics and some metal products,” said CN Senior Vice President-Western Region Peter Marshall in a prepared statement.
