Viterra to build Class I-served grain terminal in Manitoba


Viterra Inc. on Tuesday announced plans to build a high-throughput, Class I-served grain terminal in Ste. Agathe, Manitoba.
 
To be constructed near the company's canola crush plant, the terminal is designed to load up to 124 rail cars, with service to be provided by both CN and BNSF Railway Co.

The "significant investment" in southern Manitoba is another example of the company's commitment to continuously evaluate and optimize its asset network, and better support Western Canada's grain-handling system, said Viterra President and Chief Executive Officer for North America Kyle Jeworski in a press release.

"We have a long history of operating in this area and partnering with local farmers," he said.

Over the past several years, Viterra has made a series of infrastructure investments to help promote a more efficient movement of agricultural commodities, such as upgrades and expansions to its grain facility in White Star, Saskatchewan.
