the Prince Rupert Port Authority plans to diversify to improve expectations
for the future has been released this morning
A report from the Prince Rupert Port Authority has outlined some of the data from 2022 and among their notes is a review of the factors that have led to the overall drop in cargo volumes for the second year in a row at the facilities that make for the Prince Rupert Gateway to the world.
The Port observes that the 2022 volumes were two percent behind those of 2021 outlining a range of conditions that have brought those results.
The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) announced today that 24.6 million tonnes of cargo moved through the Port of Prince Rupert in 2022, two percent behind 2021 volumes.
The slight year-over-year decrease reflects the mounting challenges brought on by supply chain disruptions affecting imports and exports, rapidly changing energy demands, and geopolitical tensions over the past 12 months.
Despite the current volatility, considerable strides were made toward developing a more resilient and sustainable trade gateway in the near and long-term through further diversification, new capacity, and expanded services.
