G3 Terminal Vancouver, an affiliate of G3 Global Holdings (G3), is pleased to announce that it will build a state-of-the-art grain export terminal in North Vancouver, British Columbia, the first new grain terminal constructed at the Port of Vancouver since the 1960s.

“Our Vancouver terminal is central to G3’s vision of a coast-to-coast grain handling network that sets a new standard in efficiency,” said Karl Gerrand, CEO G3. “We plan to transform the movement of grain through the west coast, providing Canadian farmers with competitive pricing and reliable delivery opportunities.”

G3’s Vancouver terminal will feature a rail loop track that will be capable of holding three 134-car trains, unique to grain exporting terminals in Canada.  The terminal includes over 180,000 metric tonnes of storage and will be able to handle cereal grains, oilseeds, pulses and special crops, much of which will be supplied via a throughput agreement with G3 Canada Limited.  This will allow trains to travel to Vancouver, unload while in continuous motion, and travel back to G3 Canada’s primary elevators, including four recently constructed primary elevators, without detaching from their locomotives, critical to increasing supply chain efficiency.
