The Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority has a new customer at the Port of Ogdensburg. Bunge ETGO of St. Louis will store up to 10,000 tons of Canadian-grown canola meal at the St. Lawrence River facility. The meal is the primary ingredient in livestock feed, but also is used in oils and food products.
The port will receive the canola by train over the New York and Ogdensburg Railroad and ship the product out by truck. Wade A. Davis, the authoritys executive director, anticipated the product would be gone by the time next years St. Lawrence Seaway shipping season opens.
