Annual North Dakota Elevator Marketing Report, 2017-18

The objective of this report is to provide a benchmark for elevator managers in assessing performance, and supply a source for recognizing trends in the characteristics of North Dakota (ND) elevators. This report and the statistics mailed to individual elevators are presented as a source of information for elevator managers and those interested in the North Dakota grain industry. The distribution and shipment data in this report was developed from the Public Service Commission (PSC) reports that require elevators to report monthly movements of grains and oilseeds by truck and rail. The storage capacities reported to the ND PSC were used to calculate the turnover ratios. Five groups of data are presented in this report: (1) individual elevator performance (e.g. turnover) and distribution information (due to confidentiality agreements, each elevator receives individual data on only its own activities), (2) storage capacity, volume handled, and turnover ratios by elevator size and for each crop reporting district, (3) elevator distribution and modal choice for the state, (4) destination information for each of the state's nine crop reporting districts and each of the commodities, (5) modal selection for each of the crop reporting districts and for each commodity marketed.
