The Port Authority of Prince Rupert has released a report on its cargo performance for 2015. The news is good, with the Port recording its 4th best year on record despite changing markets and declining coal volumes.
The total volume experienced a slight decrease from last year, but many areas saw increases, particularly in containers, wood pellets, and logs. More than 3000 people directly employed in port-related jobs helped make the port’s success possible. There is a forecast of over 5000 jobs to be attributed to the further expansion of the port, which has saw significant progress since DP World’s acquisition.
