ADM has a new fertilizer terminal and blender at the St. Paul Alter River Terminal in St. Paul, Minnesota. It’s a 40,000-ton fertilizer warehouse with seven large storage bins for bulk products, three micro bins and a high-capacity blending and loadout system. ADM leases the facility from Alter Logistics Company. Alter’s Vice President of Terminal Sales and Marketing Tom Streight says the new facility’s been up and running since July 1. “The fertilizer is a big portion of our facility. It comes in by barge or rail and then, we load it back to rail or truck to go to the end user.” Streight says the new terminal and blender triples fertilizer capacity at the location.
