TRANSLOADING

As an integrated logistics company, International Feed also arranges for the Transloading of our feed ingredients into shipping containers.  Transloading facilities are designed with the intention of minimizing the amount of product handling needed, while providing multiple container and packaging options for the end consumer.

Ag Commodities Transload

International Feed's Ag Commodities Transload (or AgCom) operates our physical transload facility in Minneapolis, MN.  For other supply markets around the country, AgCom works strategically with third party transload companies to manage and fulfill our transloading needs. 

Container Size Options

International Feed is pleased to be able to offer products loaded into 20’, 40’, and 40’ High Cube containers; we work actively with our customers to determine the most economical option for each of our shipments.

Packaging Options

We are able to offer our ingredients loaded in bulk or in jumbo bags/totes.  If interested in jumbo bags or totes, please contact one of our staff to discuss these options.

PRODUCT QUALITY MANAGEMENT

International Feed’s top priority is to assure that the quality of supplied feed and food ingredients fulfills our customers’ requirements.  A U.S. Federal Grains Inspection Service (FGIS) representative is present during product loadings at all times to guarantee unbiased quality and weight control for truck-to-container transload cargo.  The U.S. FGIS representative provides phytosanitary inspections, sample collections, and general cargo survey and stowage examination services.

Bag and Blanket Desiccant

Upon customer request, International Feed offers both silica bag and blanket desiccant products to mitigate moisture migration issues in containers while they are in transit. We use HyBlanket Desiccant solutions which have proven helpful in reducing moisture migration due to its high water absorption rates.

Upon customer request, International Feed offers container lining solutions to assure the integrity of our products are not compromised during transloading and voyage.
