Container Loading with Ed Nienaber
Welcome to another instalment of Behind the Desk! Today we are in London. Where we are very busy loading soybeans into ocean importexport freight containers. Containers, or boxes as I prefer to call them, provide a convenient means to transport goods between manufacturers and buyers. A tremendous amount of products, such as Electronics and clothing, manufactured in Southeast Asia are loaded into boxes, transported by truck or rail to the ship yards for their journey to United States consumers by large steamships to US ports. Once in the States, the containers are transported.
Either by truck or rail to their final distribution points. Rather than ship these containers back to the ship yards empty, and paying the railroad to move empty freight, these boxes are utilized to carry bulk commodities back to Southeast Asia. US produced corn, soybeans, wheat and DDG's Distiller's dried grains are commonly loaded into these containers for export to Southeast Asia. Heritage Cooperative has been participating in the container loading business for almost 10 years. We ship soybeans out of our London, Derby, Kileville branches and occasionally Mechanicsburg and Marysville will join in.
The fun. In order for the process to work, the branch needs to be in close proximity to an intermodal railroad yard, like Columbus, that has market access to empty boxes and ability to load full boxes. Container loading is a labor intensive process for our branches. Each box has specific weight and grade guidelines that must be met. A conveyor is used to load the box from one end and cardboard is used to hold the grain in place until the doors can be closed. The container market provides a completive market for branches.
That would normally have to rely on hauling by truck to a local processor. In some years we have loaded as many as 3 million bushels of beans, which equates to over 3,000 containers. The prime loading opportunities also coincide with our harvest and winter bean exports program. Once we load the container at one of Heritage facilities it takes about one month the get to the port of call in the Asian Pacific Rim. The next time you're waiting at a railroad crossing as a train passes containing boxes, there's a good chance some of them may contain.
Expansion of Panama Canal is game changer for Va.
A PROJECT TWOTHOUSAND MILES AWAY COULD MEAN MORE BUSINESS AND JOBS HERE. WORK TO EXPAND THE PANAMA CANAL IS EXPECTED TO BE FINISHED IN JUST ABOUT TWO YEARS. AND WHAT'S HAPPENING THERE, COULD HAVE A HUGE ECONOMIC IMPACT RIGHT HERE IN HAMPTON ROADS. 10 ON YOUR SIDE'S ART KOHN EXPLAINS HOW. FOR THE PORT OF VIRGINIA AND SHIPPING ALONG THE ENTIRE EASTERN SEABOARD, THE EXPANSION OF THE PANAMA CANAL, IS ACCORDING TO THE EXPERTS, A GAMECHANGER. AND BOTH BUSINESS AND POLITICAL LEADERS, WANT THIS REGION TO BE A MAJOR PLAYER. IN ORDER TO REDUCE COSTS,.
SHIPPING COMPANIES ARE USING VESSELS TODAY THAT CAN CARRY MORE CARGO THAN EVER. IN SOME CASES TENTIMES THE AMOUNT OF GOODS THAN THAT OF OLDER CONTAINER SHIPS. TO ACCOMONDATE THESE LARGER VESSELS, THE PANAMA CANAL IS CURENTLY BEING EXPANDED, OPENING A GATEWAY TO PORTS ON THE EAST COAST OF THE UNITED STATES. THIS COULD CREATE A LOT OF JOBS FOR HAMPTON ROADS A LOT OF JOBS FOR VIRGINIA. THERE IS SOME DEBATE ABOUT THE IMPACT LARGER CARGO VESSELS WILL HAVE ON PORTS ALONG THE EASTERN SEABOARD. .BUT THE ONE THING THAT EVERYBODY IS CLEAR.
ON IS THAT THE VIRGINIA PORT AUTHORITY IS THE BEST POSITIONED PORT ON THE EAST COAST. HOME TO NAVAL STATION NORFOLK, THE PORT OF HAMPTON ROADS ALREADY HAS THE DEEP CHANNELS THE LARGER CARGO SHIPS REQUIRE BUT THAT IS ONLY PART OF WHAT THE REGION OFFERS THE SHIPPING BUSINESS. LOGISTICAL SUPPORT IS A CRITICAL ELEMENT AND MUCH OF THAT IS ALREADY IN PLACE. TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS LIKE OUR RAILWAYS, OUR INLAND PORTS, OUR TRUCKERS. THEY ALL ARE GETTING READY FOR THIS. THEY SAY BY TOLLS AND RISING FUEL COSTS. WE JUST CAN'T PAY THEM.
BECAUSE THE COSTS OF DOING BUSINESS FAR EXCEEDS THE MONEY THAT THEY WILL ACCEPT. WE NEED TO PUT TOGETHER COALITIONS THAT DEAL WITH THESE ISSUES. SO 4TH DISTRICT CONGRESSMAN RANDY FORBES AND ARKANSAS SENATOR JOHN BOOZMAN HOSTED A ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION IN SUFFOLK THURSDAY MORNING TO ASSEMBLE BUSINESS LEADERS FROM THE PORT AUTHORITY, NORFOLK SOUTHERN RAILROAD, TRUCKING COMPANIES AND EVEN RETAILERS, ALL WANTING TO BRING THE BIG SHIPS TO PORTS IN HAMPTON ROADS. THE KEY IS, YOU'VE GOT TO PUT THE INFRSTRUCTURE YOU'VE GOT TO PUT THOSE THINGS IN PLACE THAT ARE GPOING TO GET.
