GrainCorp reshuffles operations


GrainCorp will restructure operations in response to the elimination of the bulk wheat export monopoly last year

Major grain and bulk transport provider GrainCorp will restructure its operations in response to the elimination of the bulk wheat export monopoly last year.

Current storage and logistics divisions and regions will be combined into six new regions: Queensland, northern New South Wales, central NSW, southern NSW, eastern Victoria and western Victoria.

As part of the changes, former BHP Billiton vice president Bruce Griffin will take charge of the storage and logistics department, while Kevin Lloyd will oversee technical services, quality assurance and pest control.

Port managers will now report directly to Graincorp’s general manager of ports following changes at the Sunshine (Melbourne), Portland and Geelong terminals.

GrainCorp Managing Director Mark Irwin says the process will also improve relationships between grain farmers and buyers.

Irwin says existing divisional or regional offices will be structured to cater for the revised geographic coverage.

He says regional managers at the company will be better placed to capture new business opportunities as GrainCorp looks to expand its range of supply change services.
