CP Logistics Park: Vancouver

CP is proposing to construct a multi-modal, multi-commodity transload and logistics facility adjacent to its Vancouver Intermodal Facility in Pitt Meadows, to meet increased rail demand in Canada’s largest trade gateway.

Why is this project needed?

Meeting the needs of Metro Vancouver

Metro Vancouver’s population is projected to grow by over one million residents in the next 30 years. More infrastructure capacity is needed to continue to supply the regional market with goods and create high quality employment. Moving more goods by rail, and removing trucks from local roads will also help alleviate congestion and reduce emissions. This project will increase efficiencies across the trade network and allow CP to meet the future needs of shippers.

Canadian agricultural opportunities

Consumer preferences are changing; the last few years have seen significant demand growth for Canadian agricultural products, in particular Canadian pulses, which include beans, lentils and peas. Providing Canadian farmers with expanded, innovative global market opportunities is critical to their continued success.

Existing facilities are nearing capacity

The transload facilities supporting CP’s Vancouver Intermodal Facility and Port Coquitlam railyard are nearing capacity. This proposed expansion is being designed to consolidate these operations into a single world class, purpose-built logistics park. CP has a unique opportunity to expand its ability to serve its rail customers, meet its regulatory obligations, and address the needs of communities with a modern facility.
