In its 2015 year-end statistics report, Port Metro Vancouver says it’s seen a number of new records.
138-million tonnes of cargo made its way in and out of Canada’s largest port – steady from the previous year.
But records were set in the container, potash, grain, and agri-product sectors.
Much of the growth came from increased trading with Asia.
Port Metro Vancouver did acknowledge a slowdown in metal imports, like construction steel, but it was still the second highest year for metals on record.
However, it says it expects growth to keep increasing, and promises to work with all stakeholders to make sure the Port can meet both consumer and international demands.
