Bunge expands footprint through EGT’s full-service adoption of BungeServices.com and Bunge Mobile
ST. LOUIS, MO – (November 30, 2021) – Bunge (NYSE: BG), a leading global agribusiness and food company, today announced that EGT, LLC, a joint venture between Bunge and ITOCHU, has transitioned to BungeServices.com and Bunge Mobile to enhance grain location services for customers in key locations.
Through its adoption of BungeServices.com and Bunge Mobile, EGT will supply its commercial Longview Export Terminal in Washington and provide enhanced grain services to customers at four high-capacity grain elevators in Chester, Kintyre Flats, Sidney and Tunis, Montana.
The EGT terminal is among the leading facilities operating in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S., which handles wheat, corn, soybeans, soybean meal, and DDGs through both barge and rail. Given these capabilities, EGT’s presence in the region strengthens U.S. trade flows and sets a new standard for grain export.
BungeServices.com empowers producers and commercial agribusinesses with insight to inform grain marketing decisions – from checking current bids, futures quotes, and headlines, to engaging digital contracting tools including Bunge Grain Pricing Offers, Online Contracts, and electronic signatures. Other features include critical alert and account activity notifications to the latest market commentary and facility announcements.
The Bunge Mobile App also connects users to local facilities and grain bids and shows custom alerts for agricultural market updates, including commentary, weather, and news – all presented through a simple, intuitive, and comprehensive dashboard interface.
“By enhancing the full digital grain service experience of our grain customers through BungeServices.com and Bunge Mobile, we underscore our commitment to their success,” said Todd LaPlant, EGT Origination Manager. “We’re excited to extend these world-class tools to empower customers to make more informed and efficient grain marketing decisions.”
