The IGP Institute is offering two new workshops for individuals interested in grain transportation

One goal of those who work in grain transportation is to ensure that grain products arrive to customers in exceptional condition.

To help share knowledge about the most effective ways to accomplish this task, the IGP Institute has joined up with the Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission to offer grain transportation courses free of charge.

The first offering geared for farmers and other invited guests who are interested in grain transportation will be held on September 6, 2017 in Garden City, Kansas.

This training will cover discussion topics including the Kansas rail and container transportation systems, Union Pacific (UPRR) and Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway transportation overviews and the future outlook.

Speakers from the IGP Institute, UPRR and BNSF will present during the half-day program. A second class is planned for September 7–8 at the Kansas State University IGP Institute. The training will feature several topics covering Kansas rail and container transportation systems; container logistics; export documents and counter party risk; and non-vessel operating common carriers.

In addition to classroom discussions and presentations, there will also be a tour at the DeLong Co., Inc. container facility in Edgerton, Kansas.

“Both of these educational sessions will allow farmers to better understand transportation, and then to see any opportunities they could have in their own operations,” says Jay O’Neil, senior agricultural economist at the IGP Institute.
