Port of Prince Rupert, Ray-Mont Logistics embark on Ridley Island expansion

Ray-Mont Logistics is adding a facility at the Port of Prince Rupert in British Columbia for the export of containerized crops from Western and Central Canada and the U.S. Midwest.

   The Port of Prince Rupert will embark on an expansion project for containerized cargo on Ridley Island with the help of Ray-Mont Logistics, according to a press release issued by the port.
   Ray-Mont Logistics will develop an integrated logistics and container loading operation to help Canadian agricultural crops reach international markets via the Road, Rail and Utility Corridor at the south end of the Ridley Island Industrial Site.
   Crops such as lentils, peas, beans, soy, flax and wheat from Western and Central Canada and the U.S. Midwest will be transported in hopper cars by rail and then transferred to ocean containers for export at the port’s Fairview Container Terminal.
   The new 10-acre transload facility, which will have about 40 employees, will be equipped with a rail loop corridor in excess of 100 railcars, a grain dumper pit and a conveyance system.
   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 upcoming crop year this fall.
   In addition to the Ridley Island expansion, the Port of Prince Rupert is currently working on the Fairview Container Terminal expansion project. Slated for completion in August 2017, the terminal will be able to handle an increase in annual volumes from 850,000 TEUs to 1.3 million TEUs. The terminal was acquired by DP World from Maher Terminals back in April 2015.
