PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. -- The Prince Rupert Port Authority says it's ready to provide support to disrupted supply chains that been affected by the major flooding events in southern B.C.
In an online statement, the port says it remains fully operational and hasn't experienced any impacts to its port or rail operations as a result of the floods.
It says a number of terminals within the port can handle additional cargo, and are engaged with shippers and CN rail to support the movement of goods, supplies and trade
The floods and road closures in Southern B.C. have cut off access by road and rail to Vancouver, disrupting multiple supply chains in the process
Vancouver is also home to the country's largest port, which now has no access to the rest of the country.
The Prince Rupert Port Authority says its ready to "activate its full capacity" to provide support.
