PNW Columbia River Investments



From Capital Press – The West’s Ag Website

Study highlights investments in Columbia River ports (Click below link)

In my opinion….
People in the PNW are expecting a consistent demand of grain exports from overseas markets, and are willing to invest in infrastructure today even though the area has seen a drop in exports this year. This is a great time to invest because it wouldn’t be smart to wait until exports rebound, at that time it’s best to focus on elevating grain and loading ships, not worrying about capacity and maintenance issues.
