Ashcroft Terminal Considered Major Container Storage and Distribution Centre
Ashcroft Terminal was featured in the Vancouver Sun this week in regards to a fact-finding missing that Metro Vancouver’s port, rail, and trucking officials have scheduled to gauge its suitability as the site of a potential inland distribution park for Asia-Pacific container traffic. The mission is slated for April 9th and will include Delta Mayor Lois Jackson, who has been pushing Port Metro Vancouver to find other locations for port-related activities so it doesn’t turn to agricultural land in Metro Vancouver.
Asia-Pacific container traffic expected to increase 300 per cent by 2020. Ashcroft Terminal is the meeting point of both the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific trains, with up to 57 CP and CN trains travelling through the site each day and the site itself has over 300 acres of industrial land. Naturally, Ashcroft Terminal is ideally situated with the capacity to support this expected growth.
