New Inland Port Being Built on U.S.-Canadian Border

In a move designed to be an answer to tedious grain transportation, Mid Canada Transload Services Ltd. announced it is building a new inland port and rail siding in southern Manitoba on the U.S.-Canadian Border.

The 250-acre greenfield site will be located seven miles from the U.S. border, just outside of Letellier, Manitoba, and will have access to both the CN and BNSF railways which will provide daily rail service to and from the U.S. and Mexico.

Mid Canada Transload Services is currently shipping oat products on the CN rail, with the railcars later being interchanged with the BNSF railway at Emerson, Manitoba. This led to the idea to build a hub for products being moved by truck to and from rail sites.

The site will also serve to capitalize upon “Identity Preserved” grain shipments destined for millers and processors in other markets.
