Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) has acquired a grains and oilseeds warehouse in TrilĂ­, La Pampa province, Argentina. LDC's second elevator in the province and 11th in the country, TrilĂ­ will be ready to receive and condition grains beginning in December 2023, following the completion of improvement works. 

With a static capacity of 1,600 tons in silos and an additional storage capacity of 40,000 tons in silo bags, the new plant will be able to handle significant volumes of different grains and oilseeds throughout the year. The site’s connection to the Domingo Faustino Sarmiento railway line will facilitate the shipment of local production to LDC’s agro-industrial complex in General Lagos, Santa Fe, and its deep-water port complex in BahĂ­a Blanca, Buenos Aires. 

“The acquisition of this elevator represents a strategic investment to further reinforce LDC’s origination activities in the country, supporting logistics from farm to port thanks to its rail connectivity and complementarity with LDC’s existing warehouses in La Pampa and Buenos Aires provinces,” said Daniel Giuliano, LDC’s Warehouse Manager for South & West Latin America. “LDC’s increased presence in the province will also allow us to give local producers access to our entire portfolio of integrated solutions, including logistical and financial facilities, as well as a range of seed varieties, fertilizers and crop protection products commercialized under LDC’s Macro Seed, Macro Fertil and Macro Protect brands.”  

Maria Victoria Capalbo, regional grains & oilseeds sustainability manager added the new facility will support LDC’s sustainable business roadmap, enabling the direct origination of grains and oilseeds from producers in the region, and guaranteeing 100% traceability to farm for the products sourced.

Once operational, TrilĂ­ warehouse is expected to directly employ a dozen people and generate additional indirect jobs in nearby communities, as a result of the facility’s reactivation and the increased movement of customers and transporters in the area.
