Agrex begins to build BNSF loading facility in Nebraska


Agricultural trading company and feed grain exporter Agrex Inc. on Tuesday broke ground for a BNSF Railway Co. shuttle loading facility in Laurel, Neb.

To be completed in August 2014, the 2.6 million-bushel facility is designed to load 110 to 120 rail cars of corn and soybeans. The facility will provide local producers additional access to export markets in the Pacific Northwest, Gulf Coast and Mexico, as well as to domestic feed markets in Texas and the U.S. southwest served by BNSF, Agrex officials said in a press release.

The facility will feature a loop track for rail loading, two primary truck unloading pits and a third pit for that will be used during peak harvest times to keep truck lines moving.

"This will be Agrex's third shuttle loading facility in Nebraska, adding to [our] existing facilities in Superior and Enola," company officials said.
