USGC reports continued grain flow during COVID-19

May 24, 2020 |

In Washington, D.C., while much of the world has spent the last couple of months sheltering at home to avoid the COVID-19 pandemic, grain trade has continued supplying nations with needed commodities, mostly unhindered, according to the U.S. Grains Council.

As many parts of the world are on the verge of reopening, U.S. Grains Council (USGC) President and Chief Executive Officer Ryan LeGrand sat down with the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) to discuss how the movement of grain has continued, mostly unhindered, throughout the global spread of the coronavirus.

He explained that rail cars are continuing to move north to Canada and south to Mexico; barge facilities are operating throughout the inland waterway system; and vessels are loading and shipping U.S. products to destinations around the world. He did note shortages in container availability, but emphasized grain is moving, and the United States is open for business.
