Canada challenges Australia's grain supply chains

The puck stops here!

This report is the second in a series of studies into the transport, storage, and handling systems for bulk export grain in Australia and its major competitors. The first report: The cost of Australia’s bulk grain export supply chains: an information paper, was published in January 2014 and focused exclusively on Australia.

Here we report on significant points of similarity and difference between grain supply chains in Canada and Australia. We highlight trends and likely future developments expected to affect the grain supply chains in each country and discuss ways in which Australian export grain supply chains might be improved.
