NCI Director Mark Weber (fifth from left) accompanied the North Dakota Soybean Growers members who visited the Export Grain Terminal (EGT) in Longview, Washington last week. “The majority of our locally-produced soybeans are exported throu...gh the PNW. This was an excellent opportunity to see a world-class state-of-the-art port facility,” comments Weber. EGT, which opened in 2012, is the first port facility to be constructed in the U.S. in 25 years. The export facility handles corn, wheat, soybeans, soybean meal, and DDGs. The elevator has provisions for both barge and rail intake with the ability to accommodate six 110-car shuttle trains at any given time without decoupling the locomotives.
