Bunge North America has signed a cargo-handling agreement with the Georgia Ports Authority to coordinate shipments of all agriculture products through the Port of Brunswick’s Colonel’s Island Terminal.
Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, Bunge will coordinate the
shipments of all agriculture products through the Port of Brunswick, situated on the coast of the state of
Georgia in the US, which will continue to be owned and operated by the Georgia
Ports Authority (GPA).
Bailey Ragan, vice president and general manager,
Bunge Grain, said that they needed additional port capacity with their growing
business in Central and Latin America.
“The Port of Brunswick is an ideal
location with a state-of-the-art facility. This agreement also enables Bunge to
expand our origination network along the east coast and to work with the strong
local farm community”, he said.
