As one of Canada's leading handlers of grains and oilseeds, Richardson has developed an extensive network of port terminals to move product into the global marketplace. In Western Canada, the country’s prime growing region, Richardson is focused on three main business activities: grain procurement and handling through Richardson Pioneer, crop production product sales through Richardson Pioneer Ag Business Centres, and grain merchandising. Richardson moves Western Canadian canola and cereal grains to customers around the world through its ports at Vancouver and Thunder Bay.
One of the most successful grain-handling facilities in the world, Richardson Vancouver is a major exporter of western-grown canola and cereal grains to countries along the Pacific Rim. Richardson's Thunder Bay facility is the furthest inland port terminal connecting Western Canada to the Atlantic Ocean and remains a major hub for rail shipping.
