global container terminals

GCT Deltaport, Delta, British Columbia

GCT Deltaport is Canada’s flagship container terminal and the first semi-automated facility in the country. As the Gateway to the Pacific, the 85 hectare (210 acre) state-of-the-art terminal is located in the outer harbour at Roberts Bank, supported by an 1,100 metre (3,609 foot) contiguous berth. The facility’s fleet of electric, high-speed, super post-Panamax cranes serve the largest transpacific container vessels calling the tradelane, boasting seamless ship-to-rail productivity. Employing state-of-the-art computer systems to embed the highest levels in safety and efficiency into our operations, following full buildout of the GCT Deltaport Intermodal Yard Reconfiguration Project, the expanded on-dock rail yard will be the largest and most productive intermodal facility in the world.
