Grain Costs Add Up

Amber Atkinson reports on research by the Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre (AEGIC) that analyzes grain export supply chain costs. For a “wheat producer 200 km from port in western or eastern Australia,” costs start at about $60AUD per ton. Bulk handling charges, end-point royalties, and levies take another substantial bite out of the pie. Indeed, supply chain costs turn out to be the “single largest cost item” for grain producers in a year. Recently, the Australian government blocked a multi-billion dollar takeover of Graincorp by US firm Archer Daniels Midland. This report only hints at what ramifications there might have been if the takeover occurred.
