Saskatchewan’s G3 Pasqua terminal is being recognized for its high volumes, efficient loading, and strong commitment to safety, as the recipient of Canadian Pacific’s Elevator of the Year Award.
“CP is proud to recognize G3 Pasqua with Elevator of the Year for the 2018-2019 crop year,” says Joan Hardy, CP vice-president sales and marketing grain and fertilizers. “Their participation in CP’s Dedicated Train Program, 8,500-foot model capable track, and consistent and safe loading won them this year’s award. I congratulate G3 and the staff at the Pasqua elevator for their hard work and dedication to safety.”
The elevator, located outside of Moose Jaw, Sask. opened its doors in 2016. It’s where CP launched its first 8,500-foot High-Efficiency Product (HEP) train, comprised of new, highly efficient hoppers cars, back in December 2018.
“G3 is setting new standards for the fast, safe movement of grain across our network,” says Don Chapman, G3 CEO.
“We’re very proud of our team at G3 Pasqua for their achievement and grateful to CP for recognizing it with this award.”
The inaugural award was presented in April 2019 to Southwest Terminal near Gull Lake, Sask., for the 2018 calendar year. CP has since modified the award presentation to align with the crop year, which runs from Aug. 1 – July 31.
