Port of Vancouver Seeks Operators for Export Facility

The Port of Vancouver USA is looking for companies interested in running a high-volume marine export bulk facility on 14.26 acres at Terminal 2, Berth 7.

The space includes a facility with 11 acres for receiving and storing cargo. Two warehouses can offer 127,000 square feet of covered storage. The dry bulk dock can quickly and efficiently move various heavy mineral bulk commodities with a telescoping conveyor system. Four rail support tracks and one working track serve the facility, which includes “a bottom dump system where products can be conveyed to one of two storage buildings.”

“This dry bulk facility is a unique opportunity, especially on the U.S. West Coast,” said port chief commercial officer Alex Strogen. “With the port’s unparalleled access to river, road and rail, shippers bypass the facility traffic and road congestion of other West Coast ports, improving transit times and overall logistics.”

The port has issued a Statements of Interest that is due by 5 p.m. PST on March 12.

Questions should be sent to port sales director Brent Berg, at bberg@portvanusa.com by 5 p.m. PST on Feb. 15. Answers will be sent to all competing companies by 5 p.m. PST on March 1.
