Louis Dreyfus Canada is expanding the track at its Aberdeen and Glenavon terminals to boost loading capacity from 52 rail car spots to 100-plus rail car spots.
"This decision recognizes the volume we've been doing in these two locations, and the fact that we're committed to continuing our investment in Western Canada," said Ian Luff, manager of country operations.
With the current upgrade in Aberdeen and Glenavon, three of Louis Dreyfus' 10 high-throughput terminals have a 100-plus car loading capacity. "When export tendering comes in, the superior loading capacity at several of our terminals will certainly be a major advantage," Luff said.
Louis Dreyfus Canada, headquartered in Calgary, is part of the worldwide Louis Dreyfus Group and has a 59-year presence in Canada as a major exporter of Canadian grains and oilseeds.
