Windsor, Ont. – Transport Canada will provide up to $26.3 million in funding under the National Trade Corridors Fund for the ADM Grain Terminal Expansion Project at Port Windsor in Ontario.

The project will significantly increase its export capacity to global markets in Europe, the United States, and Latin America for agricultural production from southwestern Ontario farmers in Essex, Kent, Lambton, Middlesex and Elgin counties, the ministry said in a news release.

The project will include:

  • the construction of new grain drying equipment
  • an expansion of grain storage capacity
  • an expansion of shipping and receiving conveyor loading capacity
  • the development of an automated truck kiosk system to expedite complex traffic flows

In addition to expanding infrastructure, the project aims to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of Canadian grain exports.

The government said the project also aims to alleviate the current supply chain bottleneck at Windsor’s grain terminal, facilitate increased tonnage, and enhance marine transportation for efficiency gains, while reducing emissions in grain transportation.

This will address issues such as idling trucks, waiting times for marine vessels to dock, and locomotives shuttling around railcars for temporary grain storage on-site.
