Ideally Located Storage

Our facilities are located in 12 counties with 42 million bushels of storage that are strategically located on Interstates 57 and 70. This allows our truck fleet of 35 semis to conveniently haul grain to nearby terminals in Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri. Our general end users are in the areas of milling, ethanol, feed, grain processors, export, and pet food.

In addition, 7 of our 35 locations are operating rail facilities on the CN, CSX, EIRC, and INRD railroads. Combined, these locations have the capability to hold 350 rail cars and load out over 1.3 million bushels per day. These railroad lines allow our rail facilities to ship grain to the southern poultry market, Gulf region, and the southeastern states of Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida.

With so many various markets, this gives us the opportunity to pursue freight arbitrage with both truck and rail shipment. TGM’s facilities have been buying grain since the mid-1940s, and is now one of the largest non-multi-national grain companies in the state of Illinois. We believe we are prepared to meet all of our customers' needs, both today and in the future.
