ST. PAUL, Minn., April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CHS Inc. (NASDAQ: CHSCP, CHSCO, CHSCN), North America's leading farmer-owned cooperative and a global energy, grains and foods company, today announced it has acquired 29.45 percent ownership of Sitio 0, a greenfield export terminal at Necochea, a province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Other terminal owners are South American grain companies E-Grain, Alejandro Nari, Alea and Lartirigoyen. The export terminal is expected to be operational by May 2015.
"Investing in this port on behalf of our farmer-owners further ensures market access to growing demand from customers in China and across the Asia-Pacific region," said Ignacio Bosch, general manager, CHS Argentina. "Necochea's Sitio 0 terminal is a deep-water port, capable of loading post-Panamax size vessels at a rate of 1,200 metric tons per hour, along with 119,000 metric tons of storage capacity."
Mark Palmquist, CHS executive vice president and chief operating officer, Ag Business, said the Necochea terminal will improve overall export logistics and will decrease load times and waiting for vessels. Necochea is located on the Atlantic Ocean, 528 km (328 miles) southwest of Buenos Aires at the mouth of the Quequen Grande River. CHS will use the terminal to load soybeans, corn, wheat, sorghum, barley and soybean meal sourced from the area southeast of Buenos Aires.
CHS has been actively building its South American origination and export capabilities for more than 10 years and, Bosch said, the port investment is aligned with CHS growth strategy to expand global commodities assets and infrastructure.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
