Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. (“CGB”) and Riverland Ag (a fully owned and integrated subsidiary of Ceres Global Ag Corp.) recently announced an agreement to jointly own a new company called Savage Riverport, LLC. This company has assumed ownership and operation of a terminal located in Savage, MN.
The terminal, previously owned by Riverland Ag, will receive, store, and ship wheat, corn, soybeans, oats, rye and other products loaded on the TCWR, BNSF, UP and CP railroads, and by truck. The facility has 9.2 million bushels of grain storage with high speed truck and rail receiving capacity, as well as rail and barge shipping capabilities.
"CGB is looking forward to continued expansion into new markets with producers, cooperatives and commercial grain elevators. We’ve successfully worked with Riverland for the past five years and that relationship built a solid foundation for creating this business,” said Steve Burbrink, Director of Business Development at CGB.
Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. (“CGB”), a leader in the grain and transportation industries since 1970, is pleased to announce the acquisition of four facilities located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta from The Scoular Company of Omaha, NE.
These facilities are a natural extension of CGB’s existing grain origination network further in the deep south. The acquisition includes three river terminals with six million bushels of grain storage capacity.
“CGB is excited to further expand its grain origination network in the Mississippi Delta, and we look forward to operating these assets in conjunction with our other regional facilities,” said Greg Beck, Senior Vice President, Grain Division. “CGB prides itself on providing a high level of customer service, and we will diligently serve this extended customer base through keen attention to detail, paired with expertly developed risk management tools.”
The terminals acquired by CGB are located in Helena, AR; Old Town, AR; and Friars Point, MS.
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
Retirement and environment are amazing
Must be willing for overtime
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CGB Enterprises (Peoria, IL) in October 2016.
Interview at one of the regional offices. Spoke with general manager of region, trading manager, and the origination? manager, all separate, then hour or so shadow of employee. The interview was very laid back, no brain buster questions. They try to get a feel if you understand the grain business and what your work ethic is like. Found out the job is very self motivated and there was not strict deadlines/desk work involved. but very easy/laid back. great experience
