Prince Rupert Economy

Prince Rupert is one of the the quickest and cheapest routes to transport goods from Asian factories into the American heartland. And leaving Prince Rupert, container ships are filled with Canadian lumber and grain destined for the world’s fastest-growing markets.

Prince Rupert’s proximity to Asia is a substantial advantage. It’s up to 58 hours closer by sea than any other North American entry point. As a result, shippers can make an additional round-trip voyage every year.

In 2017, Port of Prince Rupert’s shipping volumes jumped 28 per cent to 24 million tons, a record year!

DP World recently invested $200 million in expanding their facilities. The terminal can now accept the largest vessels at sea. Himalayas, the largest ship ever to dock at a Canadian port, docked in Prince Rupert.

Investors in Prince Rupert real estate will gain from the next Phase II of the DP World Expansion Project.
