CBH Group sets new October shipping record
The CBH Group has exported 1.18 million tonnes for the month of October, setting a new monthly shipping record and surpassing the previous one (set in FY2012) by 10%.
The Esperance, Geraldton, and Kwinana Port Terminals all broke previous October port records, by 48 per cent, 10 per cent and 1.3 per cent respectively.
Domestic market outturns also broke their October record, making it their 7th consecutive monthly record, moving over 1.1 million tonnes from the system over the last 12 months.
CBH Chief Operations Officer Mick Daw said it was a testament to the hard work of the CBH team, transporters, contractors and growers.
“I would like to thank and congratulate the Operations team and the entire CBH team and our contractors for your continued hard work and commitment to delivering value to WA growers,” Mr Daw said.
“With the soft start to harvest, we continued to work hard on our outloading program, which has also enabled us to reduce our carry position to 2.8 million tonnes.
“With grain receivals now ramping up across the state, we know that this busy time will bring extra pressure to our people, growers and contractors, so please keep looking out for each other.”
