Drybulk at Terminal 5

Potash, a nutrient used in fertilizer, is one of the dry bulk products moved through Terminal 5. Canpotex recently completed a terminal expansion to boost production capacity from 3.5 million metric tons per year to a total of 7.5 million metric tons per year.


A top local commodity, Oregon grown bulk grains are exported to Japan and other parts of the world. On average, 2-4 million tons of grain is shipped through Portland annually to feed other parts of the world. Historians have even referred to the Columbia River as a “river of grain” for its strong connection in moving the crop.
