Depending on commodity mix we can store in excess of 500 000 tons as pre assembly for shipments. Majority of storage is open stockpiles, although we do offer covered storage for those weather sensitive products. All storage bins are enclosed with 4 meter high concrete walls to reduce chances of contamination as well as increase overall storage capacity.
Road trucks will be weighed in and out of our terminal to make sure tonnages are accurate. The trucks will be met by Bulk Connections employees throughout the terminal to make sure there is no contamination of products. Bulk Connections has, in the past, handled over 450 road trucks in a single day. We are able to do this because of our well organised road intake process.
Bulk Connections makes use of 2 tipplers to offload rail wagons. This product is directed on conveyor belts to one of two stackers. Stacking rates of 20 000 tons per day per commodity are comfortably achieved.
Once the product has been offloaded into their designated stockpiles, backactors and excavators arrange the stockpiles to neaten and optimize the stockpiling area.
At Bulk Connections we provide covered storage for those weather sensitive products. Our shed can store approximately 10 000 tons.
