CP recognizes G3 Pasqua for grain elevator efficiency
Canadian Pacific on Sept. 18 presented G3 Pasqua with the Class I's 2018-19 crop-year Elevator of the Year Award.
CP presents the award annually to the grain elevator that achieves 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.
G3 Pasqua's participation in CP's Dedicated Train Program, 8,500-foot model capable track, and consistent and safe loading won the company the award, said Joan Hardy, CP's vice president sales and marketing grain and fertilizers.
CP launched its first 8,500-foot high efficiency product train — which consists of high-capacity hopper cars — at the Pasqua elevator near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, in December 2018.
"G3 is setting new standards for fast, safe movement of grain across our network," said G3 Chief Executive Officer Don Chapman. "We're very proud of our team at G3 Pasqua for their achievement, and grateful to CP for recognizing it with this award."
CP presented the inaugural Elevator of the Year Award in April to Southwest Terminal near Gull Lake, Saskatchewan, for the 2018 calendar year. Since then, CP modified the award presentation to align with the crop year, which runs from Aug. 1 through July 31, CP officials said.
