RICHMOND, B.C. — The board of directors for Coast 2000 has approved a container yard expansion of 10 acres.
Total yard space for the third party logistics service provider will be improved to 30 acres, with a bump in storage capacity to 22,000 TEUs. Construction will be completed in the second quarter of 2007 and none of the improvements are expected to impede day-to-day traffic flow.
With the addition of the new acreage, Coast 2000 will reconfigure its gate structure, reefer section and repair, and has ordered new handling equipment.
In addition to the terminal expansion, Coast 2000 has also expanded its hours of operation. Effective Nov. 1, the facility will open from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday to Friday. Coast 2000 will continue to monitor Saturdays and will open upon request.
