TDK Expansion Project
Annacis Island Distribution Hub – Expansion project
TDK Logistics Ltd. is proposing a state-of-the-art intermodal facility expansion on a 15.75-acre rail serviced site within the jurisdiction of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority at 480 Audley Blvd. on Annacis Island, Delta, British Columbia.
About the project
The proposed expansion will increase the facility from 6.5 acres to 15.75 acres expanding the site’s existing container yard operation to handle an annual throughput of approximately 150,000 Standard 20' Container (TEU). The anticipated annual truck volume will increase from 65,000 gate transactions to an estimated 80,000 gate transactions upon project completion. To expand the container yard, the existing warehouse will be demolished, and the warehouse operation and services will be moved offsite.
The expansion proposes to upgrade the existing container storage and transport facility to accommodate increasing market demand for goods transport and container storage including the addition of rail service and agricultural transloading. Approximately 100,000 t/a of grain product are anticipated to be transloaded into containers at the facility. This project will allow TDK to intensify and diversify operations on the existing site while serving more people and improving efficiencies. This full-service distribution hub includes import and export transload.
The proposed Annacis Island Distribution Hub project consists of three main components:
- Reconfiguration of the existing container yard – demolition of one existing warehouse building, reconfigured truck gate, and three new truck queuing lanes.
- Trackwork– installation of two new rail tracks at the end of the SRY (Southern Railway of British Columbia) spur track, to accommodate a total 20 railcars.
- Grain transload operation – installation of mobile grain handling operation (utilising mobile grain conveyors) to accommodate commodity arrival by rail, unloading onto mobile conveyors and transfer to tipping container.
Proposed works comprise the following:
- Demolition of an existing warehouse building
- Reconfiguration of truck gate and container yard, including construction of gate entrance and exit buildings
- Construction of two new rail tracks at the end of the existing SRY spur track, to accommodate a total of 20 railcars
- Ground improvement works utilising Rammed Aggregate Pier (RAP) ground densification methods, extending to a depth of approx. 15m
- Installation of mobile grain handling operation (utilising mobile grain conveyors)
- Associated miscellaneous works - utility removals and installations, removal and installation of fencing and lighting installation
About the technical studies and assessments
Our technical study reports and information materials are available in the Resources section of this webpage The outcomes of the studies indicate that the expansion project is not expected to significantly impact traffic, water, air quality, noise, or the adjacent community and businesses in the surrounding area.
What to expect during construction
During construction, neighbours adjacent to the project site may experience a temporary increase in noise and dust levels typically associated with this type of work. Our goal is to help minimize disruption as much as possible by using industry best practices. Construction activities required for this Project may cause a slight increase in local traffic volumes but will be limited to the industrial lands near the Project site. We will take all necessary steps to minimize any traffic impacts including developing a Construction Parking and Traffic Management Plan.
Construction is expected to commence in July 2025 with a duration of approximately 12 to 18 months. Hours of work for construction activities will be consistent with the port authority’s approved hours of construction: 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday, excluding statutory holidays.
The project (PER No.21-098) is in the Application Review phase of the Project and Environmental Review (PER) process with the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.
