The Nanaimo Port Authority will receive $600,000 from the National Trade Corridors Fund, for the Nanaimo Port Authority to study the expansion of container handling capacity, the development of land near the port, and assess potential improvements to the transportation of cargo by sea over short distances between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

The study will also determine the possibility of expanding the Vancouver Island’s Duke Point Terminal, to help alleviate bottlenecks at Vancouver’s deep-sea terminals. It will also explore the feasibility of improving the terminal’s infrastructure, providing better connectivity to transfer cargo from barges to rail cars on the mainland.
