Québec to Build Container Terminal as Part of Beauport 2020

Canada’s Québec Port Authority (QPA) has unveiled its plans to build a container terminal at the site of the Beauport 2020 project.

Building a container terminal as part of the Beauport 2020 expansion project “will have a major impact on the economy by creating a new continental deep-water logistics hub,” the port said.

The initiative, part of the Beauport 2020 expansion project, is the culmination of a lengthy process by the QPA to identify economic niches with the highest potential for the future port’s development.

After multiple technical and commercial studies, the QPA has come to the conclusion that building a container terminal at the Beauport 2020 site “is the best way to leverage this space.”

“We’ve got a tremendous opportunity here and we have all we need to succeed,” Mario Girard, port president and CEO, said, adding that the vision “is simple and strategic: make Québec City a hub for maritime logistics on the continent.”

The key aspects of the Beauport container terminal project will include a CAD 400 million (USD 311 million) investment, a 610-meter extension of the wharf line, development of a 17-hectare area behind the wharf, as well as the link-up with existing rail and road networks.
