The Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced an investment of up to $23 million to Global Agriculture Trans-Loading Inc., under the National Trade Corridors Fund, for a project that will expand rail capacity in Surrey, British Columbia. With this funding, Global Agriculture Trans-Loading will make several purchases, including a three-track rail spur, new container lifts, railcar pushers, conveyor belt systems, and bagging equipment. These improvements to rail infrastructure and capacity will enable Global Agriculture Trans-Loading to double their operations and help move agricultural products and grain between different modes of transportation more efficiently.
