Port of Prince Rupert Highlights through-put numbers to date at PRG and Ridley Terminals
For Prince Rupert's commodity export terminals, 2013 is shaping up to be a pretty impressive year.
The latest figures are in and for the Port of Prince Rupert sharing the good news for both Ridley Terminals and Prince Rupert Grain, highlights that 2013's volumes are trending in the right direction.
On Monday afternoon, the Port boasted of the positive numbers in a tweet through their social media account on Twitter , offering up that Prince Rupert Grain has had a year to date increase of volume of 12.7 per cent, while over at Ridley Terminals the increased volume to date is 11 per cent.
For Prince Rupert Grain in particular, the rest of the year and the start of the next one may provide for equally positive returns, as Canadian National relayed an optimistic forecast for Grain shipments for the rest of the year.
In a press release issued today, Canadian National outlined some more background on the anticipated forecast for Western Canada crop production, which with some 60 million tonnes expected to be harvested, would make for one of the largest harvests in Canadian history.
Certainly good news we imagine for Prince Rupert Grain, which is a key participant in Canadian National's supply chain and a vital terminal for Western Canadian grain products.
