Fraser surrey Docks


Fraser Surrey Docks is a modern, multi-purpose marine terminal that has been serving the needs of our customers since 1964. Our facility is located along the south banks of the Fraser River in Surrey, BC. We are the largest facility of our kind on the west coast of North America.

Fraser Surrey Docks handles deep-sea vessels, up to Panamax size, with service provided at seven berths. The terminal boasts 150 acres of yard area and currently has over 360,000 square feet of covered warehouse storage space. There are four dock gantry cranes (80 metric ton of lifting capacity) that service container vessels and break bulk/project cargo vessels when required. There is also a hydraulically operated barge ramp at a separate berth.

As a multi-purpose marine terminal, millions of tons of cargo move through Fraser Surrey Docks each year. That volume is made up of containers, break bulk cargo and project cargo. Quality ship stevedoring is also available through our wholly owned subsidiary, Pacific Rim Stevedoring. As a new service offering, Fraser Surrey Docks will soon be able to receive bulk agri-products, provide inside warehouse storage, and load to bulk agri vessels. This component is currently under construction and will be completed by January 2011.

A large fleet of modern mobile cargo handling equipment is deployed on the terminal with a variety of special attachments to protect products during handling. Operators are given specialized training with emphasis placed on cargo care. The equipment is maintained at our on-site garage and maintenance facility.

Rail connections to our terminal are provided directly by the Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF), and Southern Rail of British Columbia. The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has 18,000 feet of its own rail car holding tracks adjacent to the terminal, permitting rail carriers to spot cars at their convenience.
We are also committed to providing our customers with the technology that enables them to access information about their cargo on a real-time basis through the Internet. Our Cargo Management System (CMSII) is a web based information system that allows our customers and staff to perform such tasks as booking freight, tracking shipments, planning vessels, viewing schedules, making rate inquiries and creating many detailed reports.

Fraser Surrey Docks is committed to consistently meeting and exceeding the needs of our Customers.
