See. That transition away from Vancouver is already happening. We’re going to see increased shipping occur outside of Metro Van, but it’ll be a slow dance between more ships to alternate ports and the delivery of items to ship out. Currently the lower mainland has a ton of coal and other resources that are shipped from there.

Know it all.

^No one said supply chains where intelligent now, did they. That's why there are still local places that bake bread in pretty much everywhere.

 

They are usually very efficient. Supply chains really only care that goods efficiently reach their destinations on time. As a customer, I don't care that my FedEx parcel had to go through Memphis, like most FedEx parcels do, but that I receive it on Thursday like I was promised.

Port Alberni’s economy has received a huge boost with news that Langley’s San Group Inc. will put $60 million to $70 million into a trio of mills and provide employment for about 135 people in three phases.

The centrepiece will be a HewSaw mill, designed in Finland, that specializes in small-dimension wood.

To build the new sawmill, family-owned San Group, based in Langley, is buying 25 acres at the Catalyst Paper site in Port Alberni, and will provide Catalyst with wood chips.

Small-dimension wood is often shipped by rail. so now is the time to upgrade the E&N line from Port Alberni to Nanaimo where the rail barge comes in.

Otherwise you have to send the product out in large trucks going over the "HUMP".
