LEARN ABOUT PATH

Port Alberni Trans-Shipment Hub

Did you know....?

PATH is a necessary addition to the Asia Pacific Gateway as it creates both volumetric and logistical capacity required to support continued growth of export and import shipping through Canada’s West Coast ports. It ensures that shipping to and through west coast terminals will occur at a lower cost and more efficiently. By doing so, existing terminals will achieve greater throughput and concomitant revenues.

With an annual design throughput capacity of five Million TEUs, PATH is forecast to handle between 1.4 and 2.1 Million TEUs, in its first year, growing to 4.2 Million TEU’s within 10 years.
