South Australian grain handler and shipper, T-Ports, say their new Bunker site at Wallaroo is on track for this season.
T-Ports Chief Executive Officer, Scott McKay, says feedback from Yorke Peninsula and Mid-North growers indicated strong support for competition within the supply chain.
Mr McKay added while the company had only made minimal price increases over its first years of operation, an increase in costs meant an unavoidable increase in port handling and shipping charges this year.
The Wallaroo grain export facility will feature steel silos with 20,500 tonnes of grain capacity and a rock causeway with grain conveyed to a ship loader for loading onto the transhipment vessel.
The company burst onto the grain handling scene only a few years ago, boasting smaller grain vessels in a "transhipment" method from their site at Lucky Bay.
