Vancouver’s recently launched G3 Terminal is transforming Canada’s grain supply chain. The modern system saves Western Canadian farmers’ time and money by keeping their grain moving to market and ensures overseas customers have fast and reliable access to high quality Canadian crops. Construction on G3 Terminal began in North Vancouver in March, 2017 and is now substantially complete as planned, with the facility safely and efficiently taking in grain by rail and loading it onto ships for the last several months. The terminal is designed with a focus on high velocity grain receiving, shipping and best-in-class environmental and safety standards, representing the next generation of grain terminal design. The facility can receive up to three 150-car trains on its loop track, unique among grain exporting terminals in Canada. Trains quickly unload while in motion and travel back to G3’s Prairie elevators without detaching from their locomotives.
