Neptune Terminals


Since 1970, Neptune Bulk Terminals (Canada) Ltd. has handled potash, coal, bulk vegetable oils, fertilizers and agricultural products to be shipped to markets around the world.

Located on Vancouver’s North Shore just west of the Iron Workers’ Memorial Bridge and part of Port Metro Vancouver, Neptune is the largest multi-product bulk terminal in North America. Bulk shipping terminals handle commodities that are transported in large quantities without packaging or containerization. Neptune Terminals handles both dry and liquid bulk commodities. In our first year of business, our facility handled more than 3.2 million tonnes of product and today our terminal has the capacity to handle 17 million tonnes of bulk products. We are extremely proud of the integral role we play in Canada’s economy by helping to move Canadian products to global markets such as Asia, South America and Europe. In fact, Neptune plays a critical role in Western Canada’s export shipping, handling over 5% of Canada’s offshore export products.

As a proud member of the North Shore community, Neptune contributes directly to the success of our city by providing jobs to Metro Vancouver residents;

  • sponsoring local cultural events and youth sports
  • supporting community volunteerism, local charities and organizations; and
  • helping to ensure the health and safety of our community and environment through industry best practices and standards.

Neptune is a private company owned by three bulk commodity shippers: Canpotex, Teck Resources Limited and Bunge Canada. Canpotex is the world’s largest exporter of potash. Teck is Canada’s largest Bunge Canada one of the world’s largest oilseed producers and sellers of bottled vegetable oil.

Neptune Terminals plays an important role in the success of the Canadian export economy and strongly supports the federal and provincial Pacific Gateway initiatives. The Gateway initiative will continue to improve port infrastructure, helping to ensure that Canada’s export commodity market remains strong and globally competitive.
