November stats show strong results for many of Prince Rupert's shipment Terminals

The Port of Prince Rupert has released their monthly report on shipments out of port facilities and for many of the region's export terminals the November numbers are showing improving trends heading towards 2019.

Fairview Terminal continues to show strong results, though November brought a slight decline from shipments one year ago, the overall numbers for 2018 have the Port performing strong on a year to year review.

Fairview is closing in on 10 million tonnes shipped through the terminal this year, an almost equal split of imports and exports, with 945,177 TEU's passing through the terminal so far in 2018.

Prince Rupert Grain numbers are down slightly for 2018 to this point, with a 7 percent variance reported between 2017 and 2018. So far in 2018, Prince Rupert Grain has seen just under 5 million tonnes of product shipped to global markets. Part of that decline can be attributed to some of the early 2018 issues that CN rail faced in delivering grain to Prince Rupert facilities.

The Ridley Terminals coal facility has seen a 19 percent increase in shipment volumes or 2018, with 8,206,980 tonnes of coal shipped through to November.

Westview Terminal has also had a strong year to this point, also posting an increase of 19 percent with 1,105,318 tonnes of wood pellets shipped through November.

The shipment of logs out of Prince Rupert harbour have seen a three percent increase from numbers from 2017, though the November numbers for 2018 are down compared to what were shipped in November of 2017. To date, 485,909 tonnes or logs have been loaded in the harbour.
