With the changes to the Canadian grain marketing system, SPG has identified an opportunity to help both buyers and sellers of Canadian grain by pursuing the installation of rail service at our cleaning facility. This new service will give producers and buyers ready access to outside of the Peace Region. The business plan and feasibility study are currently underway.
Rail Service Feasibility Timeline:
December 2012 - secure government funding for feasibility study.
January 2013 - request for proposals and select consultant to do study.
Spring 2013 - complete and evaluate study.
Summer/Fall 2013 - negotiate rail access with CN and secure project funding.
Winter 2013 - start development of marketing program/strategy.
Spring 2014 - begin project construction.
Fall 2014 - begin operations.
As we work toward this exciting opportunity for area producers and marketers, SPG continues to develop strategic alliances that will strengthen our members' position in the marketplace.
