GrainsConnect Canada’s new grain terminal in Huxley is now open — the fourth new terminal built by the joint venture of Australia’s GrainCorp and Japan’s Zen-Noh Group. (Another is in Vegreville along with two in Saskatchewan.)
At full operation, the terminal will load over 130 rail cars in under 14 hours. In a news release, GrainsConnect says farmers can expect “easily understood terms and competitive prices.”
The company, along with Parrish & Heimbecker, is also building the Fraser Grain Terminal at the Port of Vancouver. It will have capacity to export up to four million tonnes of wheat, barley, oilseeds, pulses and other commodities yearly, GrainsConnect said.
