Portland, OR — Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) opened a new Portland terminal yesterday after its original facility in the area was closed when the state’s Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District claimed a portion of the land through eminent domain.
Located on a 20 acre-plot, ADM says its facility will handle corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, starches and dry and liquid sugar. In addition, the terminal includes four truck-loading bays, tanks for making custom-blended products, melting tanks to liquefy dry sucrose and a 32,000-square-foot warehouse. The company says all 13 employees from the former operation will run the new terminal.
Port of Portland Chief Commercial Officer Sam Ruda says: “The Port’s Rivergate Industrial District is an important transportation and logistics center serving our region and city, where rivers, roads and rail intersect to create a world class distribution and manufacturing hub.”
