DP World to launch barge service between Vancouver Island and BC mainland

2012 03 23

DUBAI's DP World Vancouver and the Canadian west coast Nanaimo Port Authority have signed a three-year agreement to operate the Vancouver Island ports facilities including the running of general cargo between the Duke Point facility and Assembly Wharf.

The introduction of a weekly barge service between the mainland facility and Nanaimo will cut costs removing two truck moves and handling of the cargo will aim to increase frequency to twice in a month's time within six months increasing it to a twice daily service.

Vancouver Island is one of the world's highest population, non-road connected communities without lift-on, lift-off container terminal facilities.

DP World Vancouver hopes to pursue container operations for its export resources going to international markets of bottled water, lumber, wood pulp using short sea shipping.
