Vancouver’s Vanishing Growth Could Be a Congestion Issue

Canada 338 Corp - Ports 664 Mode - Containerized 1007 Mode - Seaborne 1275 U.S. 3310

Increasing congestion issues at the Port of Vancouver may be due to slow capacity additions by railroad operators. That shouldn’t be a surprise though given total container handling at the port saw a slowdown to growth of just 0.5% year over year in December from 8.8% in the prior three months on average. The Canadian west coast ports, including Vancouver and Prince Rupert, may be losing market share on long-haul routes to ports in the northwest U.S. Imports to the Canadian ports rose 7.8% year over year in the fourth quarter compared to a 23.6% rise for Seattle and Tacoma.
