Ridley Island Export Logistics Platform

The Ridley Island Export Logistics Platform (RIELP) is an infrastructure project proposed by the Prince Rupert Port Authority that will enable and support the development of innovative, large scale, export transloading facilities designed to increase efficiencies in export supply chains, maximize value to Canadian exporters, and support the growth of the intermodal business in the Port of Prince Rupert. The platform is designed to support at least 400,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of export transload capacity annually, with the potential to increase capacity to 700,00 (TEUs) for bulk and breakbulk commodities in the future. The project is designed to create a platform for transloading bulk commodities such as plastic pellets, cereal grains, speciality agriculture crops, lumber, pulp, and mineral concentrates to containers for export. The integrated off-dock facility will provide empty container storage for the port's container terminal operations, enhancing terminal efficiency and capacities. Additional information can be viewed at https://www.rupertport.com/logistics-platform/. The Canada Infrastructure Bank may also be a federal authority for the project.
