Ports of Indiana issues a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to identify potential operators for the International Ag Shipping Terminal at Ports of Indiana-Burns Harbor. The 7-millionbushel terminal has transload capabilities for ocean ships, lake vessels, river barges, unit trains and trucks. This is the first time the Lake Michigan terminal is available for a new operator in 44 years. The facility has been operated by Cargill since 1979, but the contractor is changing its business model in The Region and will relinquish the facility to the port as of June 1. Ports of Indiana originally financed the construction of Cargill’s facility in 1979 and, through the years, the terminal has exported more than 500 million bushels of corn and soybeans to world markets. The terminal can handle ocean vessels transiting the Great Lakes, 1,000-foot lake vessels, year-round barge traffic via the inland river system and unit trains from nearly all Class I railroads.
