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. 

Project/Heavy Lift

heavyliftmodules_100810The Port of Vancouver USA has a proven track record for handling project cargo. We are a global leader in the importing of wind energy components and are a gateway for large modularized components for the oil and gas industry via the Columbia Snake River System into North America. The port’s two Liebherr mobile harbor cranes can operate at any breakbulk berth at the port and have a lifting capacity of 140 metric tons each. Together, the cranes can lift an impressive 210 metric tons. For more information on our cranes, download our specifications sheet.

Terminal 2, Berth 3 is equipped with a Paceco multi-purpose crane with a 51-metric ton capacity and a 115-foot outreach. The port has designated Terminal 2, Berth 3 as a project cargo berth and may give berthing preference to ocean-going ships loading or discharging project cargo.
