Port of Vancouver USA seeking additional marine customer for Terminal 5

The Port of Vancouver USA is seeking Statements of Interest (SOIs) from firms interested in designing, permitting, constructing and operating a high-volume marine terminal facility on approximately 50 acres in the southern portion of the port’s Terminal 5.

The port believes that an existing fixed dock at Terminal 5 and nearby floating dock at Terminal 4 for autos, plenty of laydown space, and high-efficiency rail access makes the site ideal for a mineral bulk or auto facility.

"Terminal 5 is a very unique property on the U.S. West Coast," says Alastair Smith, the port’s chief marketing and sales officer Alastair Smith. "The access to river, road and rail is unparalleled; you have the 43-foot-deep Columbia River shipping channel, high-capacity rail and excellent surface transportation access for local as well as interstate deliveries."

Terminal 5 is served by a loop track completed in 2010 as part of the port’s $275 million West Vancouver Freight Access project (WVFA). Now nearing completion, WVFA will enable the port to handle up to 400,000 rail cars annually by 2018.

Visit www.portvanusa.com/key-projects/terminal-5-statement-interest to learn more about the Port of Vancouver and Terminal 5 and download the SOI requirements. Submissions are due by 5 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Friday, December 23, 2016.
