Construction on the facility began in August 2016. It was opened fully November 28, 2017.

The terminal is designed to store up to 850 rail cars on 16 tracks totalling 48,000 feet plus 12,000 feet of track for interchange with CN, switching, and temporary storage, and a small car repair area.
Its location is close to regional customers that ship liquefied petroleum gas, petroleum products and plastics by rail, according to an AMRT press release.
