DP World Saint John, Canada begins operations
Jan 17, 2017: DP World Saint John has begun operating a multi-purpose container, bulk, and breakbulk terminal at Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.
Saint John is ideally positioned to serve the needs of shippers and receivers in New England, Eastern Canada, and the Midwest.
Only 68 miles from the United States border, a daily rail service via Canadian National Railway (CN) and a multi-purpose facility with on-dock bonded warehousing, manufacturing, and cargo handling infrastructure means customers will benefit from less congestion, lower costs, fast and efficient rail connections, along with direct highway access to New England and Eastern Canada.
Curtis Doiron, Terminal general manager, DP World Saint John, said, “We are pleased to commence operations in Saint John and look forward to working with the Saint John Port Authority, ILA Local 273, rail partners, and all other port stakeholders in positioning DP World Saint John as the premium alternative to more congested and less efficient ports in Eastern Canada and the US Northeast. We believe the infrastructure in place, the keen and productive workforce, coupled with the Port Authority’s expansion plans are aligned with our vision to offer a creative supply chain solution to the market place. We look forward to sharing our vision for Saint John with our many global customers and working collaboratively with them to grow the business in Saint John.”
DP World Saint John offers year-round, ice-free access, with a deep draft and no air draft restrictions. The multi-purpose terminal can handle all types of cargo, including containers, break- bulk, heavy-lift and vehicles. Its capability will soon grow as the Port of Saint John has plans underway for a major facility expansion.
DP World Saint John will work in partnership with the Saint John Port Authority and with the governments of Canada and New Brunswick to embark on a previously announced $205 million infrastructure modernisation programme expected to be completed in 2021, with the DP World Saint John lease continuing for 30 years after.
The Port of Saint John is the only Atlantic Canada port that is served by the country’s Class I railways, Canada National Railway (CN) and Canada Pacific Railway (CP), along with access to Class I rail providers in the United States via the PanAm Rail network. With the Port Authority’s completion of the expansion works, a 350 metre deep-water berth will be created, an enhanced stacking area and a 12,000 foot intermodal rail yard capable of handling a full train.
DP World Saint John will begin operations implementing DP World’s own Zodiac Terminal Operating System (TOS). Zodiac provides an integrated platform to track vessel, yard, gate and rail movements equipped with advance optimisation modules. It will enhance terminal productivity as different functionalities are incorporated during operation and will support future growth due to its increased scalability.
With the October 2016 arrival of two new quay cranes, DP World Saint John is adding new terminal cargo handling equipment to deliver exceptional customer service and further expand capacity and productivity.
The new cranes will be modified with a range of features such as capability to work a 16 container-wide, 6,500 TEU capacity vessel, substantially larger than the average 3,000 TEU vessels currently serviced; ability to handle larger vessels through all loading and tidal conditions. Also, upgrades will be made to the existing Rodney Terminal wharf infrastructure to prepare for the arrival of the larger cranes.
