Port of Churchill to receive first grain shipments since 2015

570 Port of Churchill


Canada’s arctic port of Churchill is due to start up its first grain shipments since 2015 after a group backed by investor Prem Watsa stepped in last year to buy the facility and a related rail line linking the northern town with the rest of Manitoba. The relaunch of the 88-year-old ports grain shipments will reduce the shipping time to deliver grains to Europe and the Middle East across the Atlantic Ocean by several days. Arctic Gateway will be targeting durum, wheat, canola and lentil and pea crops from Manitoba and Saskatchewan for shipment to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, with shipments running until early November, pending agreeable weather. Additionally, Arctic Gateway is looking at shipping other commodities out of the port including forestry products, mineral concentrates, fracking sand and potash.
