Moffatt & Nichol is one of the leading ports and marine consulting firms with offices in Vancouver, US, UK, and South America. Currently involved in some of the largest projects in the Vancouver area, M&N specializes in a wide variety of maritime work from marinas and urban waterfronts, to habitat, to container, oil and gas, and dry bulk terminals.

While urban waterfronts provide relaxation for port city residents, trade provides prosperity. As the largest port in the country, Vancouver’s port facilities are numerous and varied, with all types of goods in containers, liquid and dry bulk commodities, automobiles, and breakbulk.

After providing an overview of the types of terminals in Vancouver, senior staff from Moffatt & Nichol will then focus on the North Shore terminal types, issues, and impacts, including the unique features of particular commodities.
