G3 Vermilion grain elevator open for business

G3 Canada’s new elevators in Vermilion and Swift Current are now up and running, and receiving deliveries.

The Winnipeg-headquartered company, a joint venture of the Saudi Agricultural and Livestock Investment Company and Bunge, now has 17 elevators — including six in Alberta and nine in Saskatchewan — as well as a new “next-generation” terminal at the Port of Vancouver and facilities on the St. Lawrence Seaway system.

Its new elevators are high-throughput facilities able to empty a Super B truck in under five minutes and with a loop track, which allows 150-car trains to be loaded while continuously moving (which means the air brakes don’t have to be powered up because the engines were shut down).
