G3 announced the opening of G3 Terminal Vancouver, a state-of-the-art grain export terminal at the Port of Vancouver on Canada’s West Coast. Together with G3’s growing network of state-of-the-art loop track grain elevators on the Prairies and in partnership with Canada’s railways, G3 Terminal Vancouver is transforming Canada’s grain supply chain. This 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 the next-generation facility began in March, 2017 at the site in North Vancouver and is now substantially complete as planned. The facility has for the last several months been safely and efficiently taking in Prairie grain by rail and loading it onto ships as part of a careful and successful commissioning process. The facility is now in commercial operation.

G3 Terminal Vancouver 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, which is critical to increasing supply chain efficiency.

G3 Terminal Vancouver’s dock can accommodate vessels up to Capesize, and its three large ship loaders move grain on board at up to 6,500 tonnes per hour, setting a new industry standard.

G3 Terminal Vancouver has a storage capacity of 180,000 metric tonnes and receives and ships a variety of grains and oilseeds.
