Company Updates

  • Each year, the CGB HR team hits the road to engage with young professionals across several universities in search of the best talent to join our team! Today, we proudly kicked off this year's fall career fair tour at Oklahoma State University. Pictured below are HR team members Kristy Farthing (Mt. Vernon, IN) and Teresa Johnson (Tulsa, OK).

  • The 6th Annual ZGC/CGB Crop Tour is well underway across much of the Midwest, and teams are actively compiling data to share at the conclusion of the tour! Each year, ZGC and Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. conduct two crop surveys across much of the Midwest; the purpose of these tours is to get a better idea of overall yields in anticipation of harvest. The corn tour wraps up today, and the soybean tour is set to take place 8/26-8/31. The work is tedious and a lot of driving is involved, but they sure have fun along the way!

CGB Enterprises – Why Work For Us?

CGB has been an innovative and progressive leader in the grain and transportation industries since 1970, when it began modestly in a small office in St. Louis, Missouri with 3 employees. Today, CGB operates a global enterprise with over 2,500 employees overseeing a diverse family of businesses.

The company provides an array of services for grain farmers, from buying, storing, selling and shipping of the crop, to financing and risk management. CGB continues to be one of the largest shippers of grain on the inland river system; natural extensions have included the addition of soybean processing and fertilizer products.

Moving these agricultural products from farmer to market created a huge demand for safe and efficient transportation and logistics operations through the national inland river system. The need for that infrastructure was met with the creation of CTLC (Consolidated Terminals and Logistics Co.) which was formed to provide overall logistics, transportation and bulk commodity services.

In addition to servicing CGB's core businesses, CTLC's operation has expanded to include a global base of customers who need reliable transportation and logistics services. An outgrowth of CGB's extensive transportation and logistical network, CTLC is a free-standing transportation company that services a wide range of customers far beyond the agricultural industry, providing transportation solutions using truck, rail and barge.

The company's entrepreneurial approach has thrived over 45 years as CGB has expanded in many new directions!

    I have been working at CGB Enterprises full-time (More than a year)


    Great bosses, great group of people to work with, even when there's a ton of work people have your back and it's nothing like the Oil & Gas biz. The management is in the fray with the workers, which is the way it ought to be. People are genuine and sincere here, which makes all the difference and is probably why people are here 20+ years easy!


    Can't say that I have any. Been here a year and am looking forward to many more!
