Within the last two weeks, Viterra received 115,000 tonnes of wheat, barley and canola from five trains from Gladstone, Snowtown and Bowmans, according to the grain handler. Three ports (Port Giles, Thevenard and Port Lincoln) also loaded vessels.
Note how the company lists 3 ports of receiving and not mentioning it was road. They were keen to say rail (trains) for the bulk of the article.
Most of the 115,000 tonnes of grain received in the past two weeks were delivered into Viterra’s Eastern region sites, with 36 sites receiving the grain between 25 December and 5 January according to Viterra’s first monthly receivals report.
Of the 36 sites how many of these are rail connected to used to transport the grains to the port?
