Additional Port Access Provides Customers Link to International Markets
OMAHA, NE – The Scoular Company recently opened its newest facility in the Port of Charleston, South Carolina. The new facility is an expansion of Scoular’s presence in the Charleston area and will add to the origination base used to serve the company’s export program to countries in the Asian Pacific Rim.
Originated from farms in the area, winter wheat, corn, and soybeans will be hauled by truck to the Wando Welch Terminal and transloaded into containers for delivery overseas.
“The Scoular Company is using this new transload operation in Charleston to provide grain producers in the region higher prices based on improved access to international markets,” said John Gill, The Scoular Company’s Senior Merchant for Southeastern Markets. “The Port of Charleston offers a wide array of ocean carrier services to markets across the globe, and the SCSPA’s team was very aggressive and solutions-oriented in working with us.”
From more than 60 locations across North America, more than 600 Scoular employees tailor risk-management solutions for their customers by buying, selling, storing, and transporting grain and ingredients for use in feed, food and renewable fuel markets worldwide.
