Transportation logistics have been cited as a concern for the proposed soy crush plant at Casselton, North Dakota. “We had a third-party study look at how many trucks we think are going to transit the local county and interstate into the facility,” said Eric Kresin, general manager of market development, Consolidated Grain and Barge. “Dumping 40,000 bushels an hour, trucks should be in and out of the facility quickly which should help minimize the number of trucks sitting on the road.” Kresin says they have worked out a plan with the township to keep trucks routed on certain highways and roads to minimize traffic disruptions. CBB is part of the joint venture with North Dakota Soybean Processors for this project.
