Despite decreased container volumes on the US Gulf and east coasts and in northern Canada, port expansion efforts continue. The Port of New Orleans is advancing a $1.8 billion Louisiana International Terminal project, facing local opposition and alternative site suggestions. Additionally, the Port of Prince Rupert plans a new container terminal and export facility, aiming to double its capacity despite recent traffic declines. Both ports are moving forward with their expansion plans to increase capacity and services, despite the current challenges in container traffic.
