Storage and handling

Our fully-integrated, efficient and flexible supply chain meets the needs of our growers, buyers and end use customers.

Careful storage and handling, close to the point of origination, allows us to maintain the quality of the grain we receive from growers and ensure it is available when consumers need it.

Our logistics network provides customers with rail and road transport services to move commodities efficiently through our network.

We have six bulk grain export port terminals strategically located along the coastline of South Australia. These port terminals can efficiently load various size vessels.

Viterra’s packing and processing facilities provide a large range of containerised export options from locations around southern and eastern Australia.

Quality management and food safety are integrated into all of our activities and operations.
