In order to keep up with a world that expects everything to be delivered instantaneously, the marine transportation industry must evolve equally as fast. No company is more prepared to keep up with that pace than Global Container Terminals.
Vancouver, British Columbia-based GCT Global Container Terminals Inc. has been making waves in the container terminal industry for over a hundred years. Our subsidiary, GCT Canada (formerly TSI Terminal Systems Inc.), has been operating on the West Coast since 1907 and is responsible for running both GCT Vanterm and GCT Deltaport. Beyond operating these facilities, GCT Canada has also played a major role in developing Canada’s Pacific Gateway.
Our two East Coast facilities, GCT Bayonne (formerly Global Terminal) and GCT New York (formerly New York Container Terminal) were established in 1972 and 1995, respectively.
Our high standards, customer focus, and leadership in safety, innovation, and automation have led to stable, long-term relationships with the majority of the world’s largest carriers.
GCT has always been committed to the growth and sustainability of the communities and ports in which we operate. As we grow as a company, we will continue to support and protect the people, wildlife, and land around us.
With a focus on the future and our customers’ ever-growing needs, GCT is implementing several unique expansion projects that will strengthen our leadership position and support the growing capacity needs of our industry.
GCT’s overall mission is to provide value to our customers by operating in a cost-effective, secure, and environmentally responsible manner that also fosters a safe and congenial workplace. As leaders in the marine transportation industry, it is also our mission to continue setting a high standard in terms of sustainable practices and innovative procedures.
Safety. Pride. Professionalism. Far beyond just a tagline, these are the words behind every action, innovation, and success at GCT. These principles are upheld daily by our leadership, staff, and workforce to provide best-in-class service to our customers and stakeholders.
We are committed to safety in all of our operations. Safeguarding our employees, our customers and their cargo, our company assets, and the environment in which we operate will always come first.
We take great pride in our terminals, our work, the local communities, and most importantly, our people.
Pride in our terminals because our facilities represent our commitment to operational excellence and innovation.
Pride in what we do because helping our customers and partners to achieve their goals is our first priority.
Pride in our local communities because they are our neighbours and it is our responsibility to respect their homes, protect the surrounding wildlife, and support local economic and social growth. Their acceptance of what we do is vital to us.
Pride in our people because they embody the drive and work ethic that our company is built on. Their success is our success and it is our goal to make every one of our team members feel valued and respected.
We strive for professionalism in all aspects of our customer service and terminal operations. This means we act with honesty and integrity, uphold the highest ethical standards, and demonstrate honesty and fairness in every action we take. We are always respectful towards our people, customers, and property, while maintaining an environment of teamwork, growth, and safety.
