Bulk grain shipments through the Port of Vancouver, including North Shore terminals, doubled in the first half of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022, due to a bumper crop and recovery from a previous drought. Canola volumes increased by 124%, and bulk wheat shipments were up 144%. About 17% of wheat exports went to Africa, with Japan and Algeria as top destinations. Other bulk product shipments remained stable, with potash down 6% and sulphur up 20%. Forestry product shipments declined, while metallurgic coal exports were steady. Cruise ship traffic also rose by 82% in the first half of the year.
