Make the Global DDG Shipping Process Easier

In the last few years, demand for dried distiller’s grains (DDG) has exploded around the world, with U.S. exports of DDG increasing from 5 million tons in 2009 to more than 11 million metric tons in 53 countries in 2021/2022, according to the U.S. Grains Council.

Mexico is the largest importer of DDG currently, and Vietnam is the next largest, followed by South Korea, Canada, and Indonesia.

More Congestion as DDG Demand Increases

As more countries purchase DDG as a feed ingredient, more feed mills, rail yards, and shipping docks will need to manage the unloading of DDGs safely, quickly, and efficiently so that products arrive on time, on budget, and without contamination. DDG settles and compacts during transit creating issues with the unloading process. To hasten the job, workers may use sledgehammers, shovels, jackhammers, and other tools to break up the contents inside the railcar. This can create unnecessary damage to the car, potentially contaminate the product and create safety hazards for employees.

But demand for DDGs is only going to increase globally.
