J.D. Irving, Limited has proposed the modernization of its existing transportation and rail operations on Dever Road.
Our project would facilitate the expansion of rail intermodal services. It will create short-haul trucking job opportunities and help advance Saint John as a global transportation and logistics hub.
The project is expected to create 17 full-time railway positions and 30 full-time driver positions.
Aligned with the Port of Saint John Modernization Project and
City of Saint John’s goal to be a global transportation hub, the proposed park will improve supply chain and competitiveness for local industry.

“New Brunswick’s economy is grounded in trade and its future relies on a sustainable and strong multimodal transportation sector. Developing a world-class supply chain for shippers is essential. This is an important reason why projects like the Port Saint John Modernization and the Lancaster Logistics Park are linked and so essential”.
– Jim Quinn, President & CEO, Port of Saint John
