Short-Sea Shipping Update

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA) and DP World are developing a conceptual terminal design and operating model for a common-user short-sea shipping terminal within the Richmond Properties on the Fraser River.  The site could accommodate up to two barge berths, container storage and staging, a truck gate, and a rail spur.  This design phase comes after the initial engagement, with industry, Indigenous groups, and local governments during a viability analysis conducted with funding received from the National Trade Corridors Fund. The VFPA is exploring other potential options for short-sea shipping within the Vancouver gateway.
