Ashcroft Terminal Ltd. and the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA) have signed a letter of intent to collaborate on a long-term arrangement for the transportation of Canadian imports and exports. The partnership aims to invest in, build, and operate rail infrastructure at Ashcroft Terminal, an inland terminal about 300 kilometres east of Vancouver. The additional rail car storage capacity will help remove bottlenecks, and enhance fluidity and resiliency within the Asia-Pacific Gateway trade corridor. The railcar storage program is expected to be operational by fall 2024.
