DP World Prince Rupert


The fastest connection from Asia to North American markets. Located on Canada’s Northwest coast, DP World Prince Rupert is the closest major North American port to Asia.  We offer direct on-dock access to CN’s Class 1 rail network. This strategic combination offers ocean carriers and cargo owners fast transit times between Asia and North American markets. Designed and purpose built as a high-volume intermodal gateway, cargo is rapidly moved between vessel and rail, further enhancing our total transit time advantage. Prince Rupert is also North America’s deepest natural harbor. As such, we’re able to comfortably handle the world’s largest container vessels while offering an unparalleled mix of speed, reliability and reach.


With the 2017 completion of our Phase 2 North expansion project, Prince Rupert is now operating at a capacity of 1.35 million TEUs annually. In 2018 the Phase 2B expansion project was announced that will increase throughput capacity to 1.6 million TEUS annually by 2020 and 1.8 million TEUS by 2022. Our increasing capacity means we can further support the importers and exporters who favor Prince Rupert for its position as the most efficient and fastest route for trade between Asia and North America.
