Viterra boosts service offering 

In September, 3,500 tonnes were delivered into Viterra sites, mainly in the Eastern region.

As harvest draws closer, Viterra has added its new port direct to further strengthen its service offering to its customers.

Viterra Chief Operations Officer James Murray says that both grower and buyer customers can benefit from the service which offers up to $11.10 per tonne reduction in receival fees.

"It enables buyers to purchase grain directly from growers ahead of when they have a vessel booked to load, and provides growers who prefer to store their grain on farm with greater flexibility to sell it directly to port compared to accessing Viterra's full-service supply chain," James says.

Port direct is available for postharvest deliveries and upon a buyer's call option.

Viterra's digital delivery advice is another new service available to growers and their farming business saving them time and streamlining their delivery process.

The service creates efficiencies for growers as they can prefill regularly entered information and duplicate delivery advices. It also saves time during the delivery process at site by reducing the amount of information entered while a load is being classified.

"We've already received very positive feedback on the digital delivery advice and I look forward to seeing it become a valuable tool for our customers," James says.

"The introduction of these services reflects our continued investment into our supply chain to provide our customers with an efficient service, and we look forward to continuing to meet that throughout the harvest."

The digital delivery advice is available in the Viterra app which makes it easier for growers to do business as they can quickly access information about their preferred delivery sites, login to Ezigrain, and receive app notifications with details of their delivered load and operational information. With warehouse to cash, growers can also instantly sell and transfer their warehoused grain to a cash price.

New accommodation secured for Viterra’s seasonal workers

Viterra is investing in short term onsite accommodation for local seasonal workers following the South Australian Government’s move to temporarily streamline the development and planning application process. 

A press conference to announce the initiative was held last week at Viterra’s purpose built laboratory in Thebarton, attended by Deputy Premier Vickie Chapman and Minister for Agriculture David Basham. 

Viterra Chief Operations Officer James Murray said South Australia is expecting a promising harvest this year, which is great news for grain growers.

"We are recruiting around 1500 seasonal workers to help bring the harvest in and keep our supply chain open for local growers and buyers in Australia and overseas," James said.

"Local workers are more critical than ever, due to current travel restrictions for interstate and overseas applicants. They need accommodation nearby, so this initiative will make an invaluable difference in attracting people to apply.”
