GCT Global Container Terminals (GCT) is headquartered in Vancouver, B.C. and operates two container terminals in the Lower Mainland, GCT Deltaport and GCT Vanterm, along with two other facilities on the East Coast of North America.
GCT, majority Canadian-owned and one of the largest terminal operators and marine industry employers in the country, has been strongly committed to Vancouver and Delta over the past 100+ years of safe, successful port operations and incremental, sustainable expansion projects.
The DP4 project builds on this local knowledge and history. It reflects a commitment to minimizing the industry's impact on the environment 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.
GCT is recognized as one of the most environmentally-responsible terminal operators. The company cares about our ecosystem and its expansion history proves this. GCT's "Global Commitment" to sustainable operations has been recognized in multiple awards and accolades from Green Marine, Climate Smart, Clean50, Delta Chamber of Commerce Green Award, CN Eco Connexions Sustainable Partner program, and many others.
As of 2021, GCT directly employed over 2,260 people in Canada, and many more indirectly through its supply chain partners. More than 98% of GCT Global Container Terminals' operating expenses are spent locally in Canada.
