Containers started arriving this week at the newly opened Pacific Transload Express facility adjacent to CP’s Vancouver Intermodal Facility.  The 117,000 square foot facility developed by Maersk Canada and Canadian Pacific is expected to eliminate more than 100,000 truck trips per year in the Vancouver area—almost 60,000 round trips per year—and save more than 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide (greenhouse gas) emissions per year with shorter and energy-efficient rail connections between Centerm, Vanterm, and Deltaport. The facility will transload fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and auto parts from international containers into 53-foot trailers for domestic distribution.
