Canadian Pacific has recognized G3 Pasqua and CHS Northland Grain Hazel (U.S.) with its 2020-2021 Elevators of the Year award.

The annual award goes to grain elevators that achieve high volumes from a single loading point while consistently demonstrating efficient rail-car loading and a strong commitment to safety, CP officials said in a press release.

Both elevators are repeat winners of the award. G3 Pasqua won the 2018-2019 crop year award, and CHS Northland Grain Hazel was the inaugural U.S. winner for the 2019-2020 crop year. CP also recognized Cargill Elva (Manitoba) and Elbow Lake Coop Grain (Minnesota) as the runners-up for Elevator of the Year 2020-2021.

Located east of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, G3 Pasqua is a "valued stakeholder and an integral player" in bringing innovation to CP's grain supply chain, CP officials said. The Class I launched its first 8,500-foot high efficiency product train, comprised of 147 new, highly efficient hoppers cars, at the Pasqua facility in December 2018.

CHS Northland Grain is located in the heart of U.S. grain territory in Hazel, Minnesota. The facility has the capacity to load up to 110-car trains, which are sent to both domestic and international markets.
