The Port of Prince Rupert is serving up another service at their Ridley Island operation.
The port along with Ray-Mont Logistics is developing an integrated logistics and container loading operation at the south end of Ridley Island Industrial to ship out crops like beans, soybeans, flax, and wheat to international markets.
The port’s Michael Gurney says 40 full-time jobs are expected to be created once the project is completed, which aimed to be ready for this year’s crop season.
He says the ten-acre facility will include a rail loop corridor in excess of 100 rail cars, a grain dumper pit, and a conveyance system that will allow crops to come from all over the country.
This latest development will see the loaded containers shipped out of the Fairview Container Terminal, which is currently under expansion.
