Inland Terminals, also known as dry ports, are successful when they are strategically located to improve the supply chain for the railroads, producers and shippers; Ashcroft Terminal (AT) is such a facility.
Located at the Eastern end of CP/CN mainline co-production, Ashcroft is the last location westbound, and the first location eastbound, at which mainline traffic can stop, to or from, Metro Vancouver. Every railcar that travels on the Class 1 mainlines, must go directly through Ashcroft Terminal.Shippers, producers, and manufacturers who are working with AT to remove bottlenecks and smooth out their product moves, have benefitted from the ease and efficiency of this one-of-a-kind transloading solution.
