The Project

Gateway Pacific Terminal is being proposed by Pacific International Terminals, LLC (PIT), a joint venture between SSA Marine and Cloud Peak Energy.  The Crow Tribe of Montana has an option for 5% ownership in the new terminal.  Gateway Pacific Terminal (GPT) will be a new, highly efficient shipping terminal to expand America’s exports of dry bulk commodities. It will meet our state’s stringent environmental standards while providing a major boost to the region’s economy, creating thousands of family-wage jobs and millions in tax revenues. This $665 million multi-commodity cargo-handling facility will create a critical link between rail and vessels, helping American producers of dry bulk commodities such as low-sulfur coal, potash and grain to be more competitive in the global marketplace. The terminal will remain viable for decades because it is designed to handle a variety of dry bulk commodities to meet changing market demands.
