A Thunder Bay grain terminal has established a record for the largest amount of grain loaded onto a single vessel in the history of the port, reports TBNewsWatch.com.

The new mark was reached Sunday at the G3 Canada elevator on the Mission River, breaking a record set just this summer at another terminal.

Elevator workers put 31,143 metric tons of grain into the holds of the Algoma Central Corporation's newest bulk carrier, Capt. Henry Jackman.

Carlo Lombardo, general manager of G3 Thunder Bay, told TBNewsWatch.com the company has made significant investments in the terminal in the past year, including a recently-completed dredging operation.

He said that without those investments it wouldn't have been possible to set the record.
