2013-14 Annual Report

The grain monitoring team is presently working on the 2013-14 Annual report.

Move to Monthly and Expanded Measures

Many will have heard of the Governments instructions that the Grain Monitoring Program is to move to a monthly reporting with an expanded measures mandate. Quorum is continuing to work with the railways in the development of the measures and to obtain the data required to develop those measures in a timely manner.

Grain Industry Supply Chain Review

With work initiated in late November 2011, the study is part of the Government of Canada’s recommendations stemming from the Review of Railway Service. The terms of reference for the study supports the commercial solutions recommended by the Rail Freight Service Review Panel and is to identify ways to improve the effectiveness of grain supply chains – with the main focus being on developing more aligned objectives between marketing systems and grain supply chains. This study is being performed in conjunction Quorums’ sister company, QGI Consulting.

The report is in the final editing stage and should be released by the Government soon.
