Sollio Ag to build new port at Oshawa

The agri-business division of La Coop fédérée, recently rebranded as Sollio Agriculture, and QSL, a terminal operator, have announced they will partner on a new grain terminal at the Port of Oshawa, Ontario.

QSL operates a network of more than 30 terminals along the St. Lawrence–Great Lake corridor through its subsidiaries in Chicago and Ogdensburg, by joint ventures in Port Weller and Port Colborne, and also by QSL, Ontario Division (formerly known as Great Lakes Stevedoring Co) in Oshawa and Hamilton.

The new build will be a Canadian Grain Commission-approved export facility, the company says, and will combine modern unloading equipment and grain storage and vessel-loading equipment.

Because of its location, the new facility will shorten the trucking distance for many farms to the export terminal, and will accelerate the pace of truck unloading, QSL says in a news release.

The grain terminal is expected to be completed next autumn and fully functional by next winter.

Sollio Agriculture announced last year a new build at the Port of Quebec, a 50 per cent stake in Ontario feed company W-S Feed & Supplies Limited, and a partnership with Maizex.
