by MM&D staff

FROM THE MM&D JULY/AUGUST 2011 PRINT EDITION: Agribusiness firm Parrish and Heimbecker (P&H) has opened twin storage domes that can house over 60,000 tonnes of agricultural product at the Port of Hamilton. The terminal will be a primary centre for P&H to move grains and other agricultural commodities.

The specialized floor conveyor system will increase loading and discharge speed for trucks, rail cars and ships, said P&H.

The domes can handle protein meals, sugar, salt and granular fertilizer, as well as traditional coarse grains that move through the port.
