Capacity, Access and Accommodation.

 The Port of Vancouver USA’s five terminals and 13 berths lie at the terminus of the Columbia River’s 43-foot, deep-draft shipping channel, creating an international transportation gateway. Two major North American railroad lines converge here. Primary freight arterials of the U.S. Interstate Highway network run north, east and south. More than 1.2 million square feet of waterfront warehousing mean ample storage space. Two Liebherr mobile harbor cranes—each with a lift capacity of 140 metric tons—make us the West Coast experts in break bulk and heavy lift cargo. And topping it off? Our exceptional customer service, including relationships with key resources in the logistics chain, helps us meet your shipping requirements with smart, fast, efficient and safe solutions. 

Break Bulk

The Port of Vancouver USA handles many types of break bulk cargo, including steel, pulp, plywood, aluminum, trucks, forest products, containers and yachts.

Our two Liebherr mobile harbor cranes can operate at any port break bulk berth; they have a lifting capacity of 140 metric tons each and 210 metric tons in tandem. Terminal 2, Berth 3 is equipped with a Paceco multi-purpose crane with a 51-metric-ton capacity and a 115-foot outreach.
