Proposed GCT Deltaport Fourth Berth Expansion (DP4)

Building the Vancouver Gateway Since 1907

As a homegrown, Vancouver-based company, Global Container Terminals has always focused on establishing sustainable and efficient operations that benefit our neighbours, workforce, and customers. For over a century, we have built the Vancouver gateway, pioneered new technologies, achieved greater levels of efficiency, with the goals of improving workplace safety, improving our service levels, and facilitating a sustainable quality of life in our local communities. As private company, we have proudly invested in Canada, spending over $650 million in staged terminal upgrades in the past 10 years alone. As the country’s largest maritime employer, over 90% of our operational expenses are concentrated right in Canada.

Proposed GCT Deltaport Fourth Berth Expansion Project

We are proven operators that have developed our operations through smart densification as required by our customers and consumer demand. Uniquely positioned to meet Canada’s needs as a trading economy, we are looking ahead to prepare for our next incremental stage of development. The GCT Deltaport Fourth Berth Expansion (DP4) project is a sustainable, phased, and privately-funded expansion of our existing footprint to add a fourth berth, delivering required capacity while minimizing impact on our neighbours, environment, Indigenous fishing grounds, and our workforce.
