GCT Global Container Terminals, majority Canadian-owned and one of the country's largest terminal operators and marine industry employers, has been strongly committed to Canada for more than 100 years, delivering safe, successful port operations and incremental, sustainable expansion projects.
New container capacity will be needed on the West Coast by the mid-2030s or early 2040s, and GCT has a solution!
GCT's Deltaport Berth 4 (DP4) is a smart, phased, incremental, environmentally-conscious and privately-funded plan to add timely container terminal capacity at Roberts Bank in Delta, B.C., by adding a fourth berth to the existing GCT Deltaport terminal.
DP4 will be fully funded by Canadian private investment, which ensures no risk for taxpayers or businesses conducting trade and frees up billions in public funds that could be better deployed elsewhere - like towards off-terminal infrastructure that will improve the resiliency of the supply chain.
The four-year construction of DP4 will result in more than $2 billion of direct, indirect and induced economic activity in B.C. and across Canada and contribute more than $1 billion to Canada's GDP. Following completion of DP4, the Deltaport Terminal will result in more than $1.6 billion of direct, indirect and induced economic activity in B.C. and across Canada and contribute more than $1.2 billion to Canada's GDP.
Further contributing to Canada's economy, DP4 will add thousands of jobs, and it is expected to provide 10,000 FTEs of direct, indirect and induced employment during the construction process. Following completion of DP4, the Deltaport Terminal will support 6,900 FTEs of direct, indirect and induced employment each year.
The DP4 project builds on GCT's local knowledge and history. It reflects a commitment to minimizing the industry's environmental impact and preserving the marine ecosystem while maximizing a positive presence for local residents, the workforce, and the Indigenous peoples who share their land and resources with us all.
Committed to the country's economy and environment, GCT's DP4 reflects a commitment to Canada!
