The Port of Prince Rupert is on track for another record year according to CEO and President Shaun Stevenson.

Yesterday evening the port hosted their 2018 annual public meeting at the Crest Hotel and success was the word most used while reflecting on the previous year.

When asked about the major highlights of 2018, Stevenson states the change in management, including the addition of a woman to the board for the first time, has helped to re-energize the organization. But on the business side of things, he says terminal expansions top the list.

"We're very, very excited and proud to have reached a million containers last year, to see the future expansion of the container terminal confirming our agreements with DP World, as well as significant progress on expansion projects like the AltaGas propane export terminal and related developments. So a lot of seeds planted for future opportunity, but also some success last year as well."

Stevenson says 2019 is following the same trend and is expected to break some records.

"We expect growth of 10 to 20 per cent, record volumes of both containers, probably near record volumes in other lines of business, and, as exciting, probably set the stage to see more and more construction activity at the Port of Prince Rupert. So, the last decade has been very exciting and we're equally excited about the next decade before us."

The total net income for the Port of Prince Rupert in 2018 was $25.2 million.
