Building for the Future: Paterson Grain to construct a new Unit Train Loading Facility near Daysland, Alberta.

Paterson Grain is pleased to announce plans to build a new unit train loading facility near Daysland, Alberta, expanding Paterson’s footprint in central Alberta. The facility is expected to begin accepting grain in 2016.

The new unit train loading facility, Paterson Grain’s third Inland Export Terminal in Alberta, will incorporate the most modern grain handling and storage concepts. With storage capacity of over 55,000 metric tonnes, the new facility will utilize a highly efficient loop track system, which has become a customary feature in Paterson’s newest grain terminals. As the first in the industry to utilize the loop track design, Paterson has been able to minimize train loading times, setting a new industry benchmark at its two loop track sites. The new facility will also feature a dual receiving area, allowing for efficient truck unloading. These features are expected to result in quick turnaround times for off-farm deliveries. The efficient truck handling capability combined with highly efficient rail car loading will allow Paterson to offer excellent customer service even during the busy harvest season.
