An integral part of the Port of Thunder Bay’s strategy is expanding upon the successful project cargo corridor, facilitating the movement of dimensional cargo to and from Western Canada and international markets. The Port coordinates the activities of stevedores, trucking companies, equipment operators, railways and fabricators to ensure that project cargo is handled efficiently and that shippers derive value out of shipping cargo via Thunder Bay, The Superior Way West.
The Port of Thunder Bay’s strategy is broadly defined by three strategic objectives:
- Diversify and increase marine cargo
- Invest in strategic infrastructure
- Promote partnerships & engagement
The mission and vision of the Port of Thunder Bay will be realized through the strategic objectives, which form a framework for decision-making. The Port strives to diversify cargoes to reduce dependency on select commodities. Continuing to expand the Port’s profile through strategic partnerships and promotion is critical to its success in a dynamic global market. The Port has prepared a significant 5-Year Capital Plan in strategic investments. This includes the expansion and reconfiguration of the general cargo terminal to capitalize on future cargo growth opportunities.
