Container handling at Canada’s big three ports climbed 9.9% on a year earlier in October due to improved growth in Vancouver’s imports. When combined with Prince Rupert, import growth on Canada’s west coast reached 14.4%. That still lagged the 22.1% seen at Seattle and Tacoma due to a – possibly short-lived – surge in traffic from China. West-coast intra-regional trade expanded only slowly though. The outliers were U.S. seaborne imports of wood-pulp and building lumber from Canada’s two west coast ports climbed 19.5% and 10.0% respectively.
