Prince Rupert's Fairview Terminal finishes year on a high note

Le terminal Fairview de Prince Ruperts termine l'année en beauté

2018-12-22

The Port of Prince Rupert and DP World celebrated a historic milestone as Fairview Container Terminal handled its millionth container (TEU) for the first time in a calendar year.

On December 18th, the millionth TEU was loaded onto the COSCO Africa with ILWU members and supply chain partners on hand to celebrate. The 40-foot container was loaded with dimensional lumber from Canfor's Plateau mill at CN's Prince George Transload Facility before arriving in Prince Rupert by rail.

"DP World is proud to have achieved the million TEU milestone," said Maksim Mihic, General Manager DP World (Canada) Inc. "We congratulate and thank the men and women whose hard work and dedication made this achievement possible. This accomplishment is also a testament to the strong collaboration and support amongst the supply chain and community partners. We are pleased to share this historic milestone together with our partners, First Nations, ILWU, City of Prince Rupert, Prince Rupert Port Authority and CN Rail.  DP World Prince Rupert is a vital link in enabling Canadian trade and this achievement reflects the potential of the port and is a sign of many more to come."

During its first full year in operation in 2008, Fairview Terminal moved a modest 182,523 TEUs. Since then a combination of strong local longshore labour, efficient terminal management and reliable rail service have given Fairview Terminal distinct advantages to shippers that has contributed to a decade of exponential growth.

Nouvelles mesures pour améliorer  la mobilité des résidents et des marchandises de la Basse-Côte-Nord et de l'île d'Anticosti.

New measures to improve the mobility of residents and goods on the Lower North Shore and Anticosti Island.

2018-12-20

Le ministre des Transports, M. François Bonnardel, et le président-directeur général par intérim de la Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ), M. François Bertrand, ont annoncé aujourd'hui une série de mesures qui amélioreront significativement la mobilité des résidents et des marchandises de la Basse-Côte-Nord et de l'île d'Anticosti.

Les mesures annoncées permettront aux passagers résidents de profiter d'un service de transport alternatif aérien lorsque le NM Bella Desgagnés ne peut accoster à l'un des ports habituellement desservis en raison des conditions de navigation défavorables.

L'accès au NM Bella Desgagnés sera également plus abordable et accessible pour les résidents. Le nombre de lits à prix réduit dédiés à cette clientèle passera de 30 à 36, et le prix des lits en occupation quadruple dans des cabines standard sera par ailleurs réduit de plus de 30 %, passant de 73 $ à 50 $.

Finalement, les propriétaires de véhicules mesurant entre 6 mètres et 6,4 mètres, soit essentiellement les camionnettes, bénéficieront d'une nouvelle tarification qui se traduira par une baisse de tarif de 30 % à 85 %, dépendamment de leur point de départ et de leur destination.
