The Ashcroft Inland Port Terminal has been sold with a huge potential for job creation.
Singapore based PSA International, one of the worlds largest port operators, purchased 60 per cent of the inland port in Ashcroft for an undisclosed price.
The new Chief Commercial Officer, Kleo Landucci.
“We’ll continue to grow the bulk side and we’ll continue to grow the transloading side of the business, but this really brings that international understanding of what it takes to build the container side.”
Landucci says, there is room for big job growth in the future.
“Through the build over the next few years we will see approximately 250 jobs and then through that then we will look at longer term more permanent jobs.”
The port is in the middle of a 28 million dollar upgraded as the terminal is slated to receive a new link to the CN mainline.
