The Port of Vancouver is Canada's largest and busiest port, with 28 terminals and nearly 35,000 workers handling hundreds of thousands of vehicle shipments and cruise passengers each year, along with millions of cargo containers. The logistics of managing this massive operation is mind-boggling. Industrious goes deep inside to see what it takes to keep the Port and our economy humming. Big machinery meets old school brawn as workers struggle with broken equipment, a punishing schedule and busloads of passengers. Facing impossible odds, crews race to load and unload five very different ships - in a matter of hours - in order to meet tight deadlines. Can they resolve a series of crises before the repercussions are felt around the globe?
