Port Metro Vancouver

This freight harbor/cargo ship terminal may not be as elegant, clean and bright as that of it’s neighboring pier at Canada Place, but it’s sure got some color!!.  A close-up crop vs. a 9-image panoramic shot of the location where all the cargo ships load/unload their freight containers at the Ballantyne Pier.

There is SO MUCH MORE to this port than meets the eye.  The Port Metro Vancouver system is Canada’s largest port, a gateway for domestic and international trade and tourism, and a major economic force in the Canadian economy.

Port Metro Vancouver launched a series of television advertisements entitled “Port Stories” in 2013 and 2014 on stories about the goods they import every day, the power they produce for cruise ships, the jobs created in BC by port activities, and the natural resources exported through the harbor.
