Our four state-of-the art terminals are positioned on the East and West Coasts in order to provide our carrier customers with easy access to the major international trade routes. All four have direct access to major freeways and national railways, so connections to-and-from the terminals are fast and reliable. And, in keeping with our leadership position, we are constantly upgrading and improving our technology, equipment, and processes so that we can continue delivering on time, every time.
Strategically located outside the Bayonne Bridge, semi-automated GCT Bayonne is the most efficient terminal in the port of New York and New Jersey, situated in Bayonne, NJ. Designed to the largest vessels operating on its tradelane, it is the closest container terminal to the harbour entrance, reducing transit time by more than four hours. At 67.6 hectares (167 acres) with a 823-metre (2,700-foot) berth, the terminal allows for unencumbered vessel approaches and reduces transit times by two hours and features the fastest truck turn times in the port of New York and New Jersey.
An award-winning expansion in 2014 introduced modern equipment and a safer, more fluid design, making GCT Bayonne once of the most advanced facilities in North America. Leveraging the design, technology, and process improvements from its berth and landside modernization, the facility’s yard and gate complex was further upgraded, enabling GCT Bayonne to become the first terminal to introduce a comprehensive truck appointment system on the East Coast in 2017, drastically improving cargo-handling speed as well as smoothing traffic and reducing emissions as featured by the US EPA. In 2019, GCT Bayonne ExpressRail Port Jersey began operations, enhancing service levels even further with fast, seamless connections to inland destinations across North America. Coupled with leading crane productivity, the new intermodal yard provides our customers with first and last port-of-call advantage for their rail cargo.
GCT Deltaport, Canada’s flagship container terminal, is located at Roberts Bank in the Port of Vancouver. It is an 85-hectare (210-acre) facility with three contiguous berths totaling 1,100 metres (3,609 feet). The state-of-the-art terminal is designed to handle the largest transpacific container vessels in service and features 2 new Megamax cranes—the largest in the Americas—in its fleet of twelve high-speed, super post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes. Through equipment upgrades as well as process and design change, the recently completed CAD$300mm railyard expansion sustainably increased capacity by over 50%, all within its existing footprint. Ensuring the facility is equipped to handle volume surges from the biggest ships, GCT Deltaport’s on-dock intermodal yard is now the world’s largest and most advanced in the world, with tracks totaling 8,334 metres (27,350 feet).
Strategically located in the inner harbour, GCT Vanterm, part of GCT Canada, operates in naturally occurring deep water and is among the most productive terminals in North America. It is a 31-hectare (76-acre) container terminal with 619 metres (2,030 feet) of berth, offering six high-speed, super post-Panamax dock gantries, a modern fleet of container handling equipment, and an on-dock intermodal rail yard with nine tracks totaling 2,926 metres (9,600 feet).
