New G3 Canada Ltd. Terminal Opens its Doors

The new G3 Canada terminal, located on Eastport Drive at the Port of Hamilton is open for business. This $50 million investment in Hamilton’s agri-food sector is a major addition to the Port’s role as an export gateway for Ontario-grown grain.

The new terminal features:

  • ·       50,000 MT storage and handling facility
  • ·       Rapid truck unload in under 5 minutes
  • ·       Ability to handle 35+ trucks per hour
  • ·       State of the art automation system
  • ·       Best available dust control system
  • ·       Ability to receive and ship grain by truck, rail or vessel

The new G3 terminal serves grain farmers throughout southern and southwestern Ontario, and is part of a growing agri-food hub at the Port of Hamilton, which includes everything from flour milling, to liquid bulk storage, to biodiesel production.

 “We’ve had $200 million in agri-food investment in recent years, but we believe this is just the beginning,” said Ian Hamilton, HPA’s President & CEO.

“The opportunity for the Port to help drive a regional agri-food cluster in Southern Ontario is enormous.” Hamilton is building momentum: the sector is already responsible for $1 billion of economic activity within the city. With 14 agri-food related tenants so far, the Port is now looking at increasingly higher-value, more specialized products and services, such as cold storage, specialized warehousing, rail transload facilities, and advanced processing.
