paterson_elevator_logoPaterson Grain has announced plans to build a unit train loading facility near Daysland, in central Alberta.

The 55,000 metric tonne inland terminal will feature a 120-car loop track with a dual receiving area for trucks.

“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,” said the company’s news release.

The Winnipeg-based grain company currently operates two grain terminals in Alberta — at Cypress and Gleichen.

They expect the Daysland facility will begin accepting grain in 2016.
