Logistics firm DP World and Prince Rupert Port Authority in British Columbia have agreed to assess the feasibility of a second container terminal at the Port of Prince Rupert, which would add up to 2 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) of annual capacity; the Port is served by CN.

A major West Coast terminal is set to again boost capacity by nearly 800,000 TEUs.
CN is investing C$400 million in new capacity this year, primarily in western Canada and the Edmonton-Chicago corridor. Projects currently in progress include 60 miles of double track, 11 new sidings or siding extensions, and eight yard expansions. All should be completed in November.
