Viterra to invest $35 million at Wolseley

Viterra is making a $35 million investment in its Wolseley site to improve safety, expand the site and create efficiencies and value for grower and buyer customers and the local community.

This project is Viterra’s single largest investment in its upcountry network and aims to meet the evolving needs of growers and the industry now and into the future.

The investment will improve the grower delivery experience with additional bunker storage, state of the art classification centres and new and extended weighbridges, marshalling areas and roadways.

It will also transition the site to fast rail loading which will provide reduced freight costs that Viterra will pass back to growers and help move more tonnes to our Adelaide ports for export in the first half of the year to meet our buyer customers' needs, assisting growers to achieve a premium for their grain.

Viterra’s Wolseley site is a key asset in its southern Australian network. Being situated on the Melbourne to Adelaide freight rail line, it plays a significant role in supporting local grain growers in the south east region of South Australia, and western Victoria, and connecting them with domestic and international consumers.

Viterra Chief Operations Officer, James Murray says the project is an important step in Viterra’s focus of making the South Australian supply chain more efficient. 

“Buyers want to access efficient supply chains that can bring grain from upcountry to port through the most effective route and move more grain out of Australia in the first half of the year,” James says. 

“To compete with interstate and international markets, we need to keep moving our supply chain forward to make it even more efficient to meet our grower and buyer customers’ needs for the long term.”

This investment is in addition to the $75 million Viterra currently invests into its sites each year where it provides the greatest value to its customers through creating efficiencies, improving reliability and ensuring the long-term sustainability of its network.
