WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA —G3 has announced the opening of two new grain elevators into its network of high-efficiency grain handling facilities: G3 Vermilion (Alberta) and G3 Swift Current (Saskatchewan).
The new elevators are able to unload a Super-B truck in less than 5 minutes, while trains up to 150 cars can load in continuous motion on the loop track in a matter of hours. Both new elevators have 42,000 tonnes capacity and are positioned to ship grain by rail to G3 Terminal Vancouver, the company’s grain export terminal on the West Coast, G3 said.
“We’re pleased to be part of these great agricultural communities and look forward to earning the business of farmers who see the value in fast, efficient service,” said Don Chapman, chief executive officer of G3. “And we’re happy to welcome the new facilities’ dedicated and skilled staff to the G3 team across Canada.”
