Over the last three decades the GHTS has had to address the handling needs of a. “The development of a containerized grain supply chain would enhance competition. If farmers have a choice of shipping grain through a bulk handling system or a containerized grain handling supply chain, then they are going to be able to choose the one that delivers the best returns for them,” Prentice says.

The grain handling and transportation system that serves farmers in Western Canada today bears little resemblance to the system that served their parents. The grain handling and transportation system (GHTS) has been a defining component of the western Canadian economy since the early part of the last century.

Only two major railways serve the grain handling industry, so the potential for the exercise of market power in transportation. The result of all these regulatory arrangements was that modernisation of the grain transportation and handling system was stymied, and it remained 25 to 30 years out of date until the s.

So severe was the problem that in the late s and early s, when Canada opened up wheat markets in the Soviet. While the overall number of elevators in the grain handling and transportation system (GHTS) has significantly decreased, storage capacity has not. In the same five-year period, storage capacity fell by only 19%, declining from m tonnes to m tonnes.

This is directly related to the construction of more efficient storage and handling systems. “Fugitive grain dust” means combustible dust particles, emitted from the stock handling system, of such size as will pass through a U.S.

Standard 40 mesh sieve ( microns or less). “Grain elevator” means a facility engaged in the receipt, handling, storage, and shipment of bulk raw agricultural.

In the major grain loading ports of the world, the grain is transported to the terminals by rail, road or barge. The developed nations have a complete internal network of elevators which. However, the study authors concede no transportation system could have handled the “ surge,” the record million-tonne crop harvested by western farmers, which combined with extremely cold weather, lack of rail and grain handling capacity and logistics co-ordination led to the grain backlog.

Despite stringent quarantine regulations, the introduction of new crops can also introduce new storage pests which render traditional storage structures inadequate. An example is the large grain borer in Tanzania (see Box 31). Traditional post-harvest grain handling and storage practices may need to be modified to reduce damage by such pests.

The book surveys various techniques and practical engineering options for the study, design, construction, safety, operation and maintenance of grain handling and storage facilities.
