Thunder Bay Terminals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Russel Metals Inc. is a state of the art dry bulk handling system. In business for over 30 years, TBTL provides excellent customer service along with its supply chain partners. The terminal has 11 million tonnes of throughput capacity and 2 million tonnes of ground storage providing for flexibility of various products. The coal handling system provides for the unloading of 120 car unit trains using a single barrel rotary dumper at 4,000 tonnes per hour and stacking out to ground storage. Coal can be reclaimed from storage at the rate of 6,000 tonnes per hour  and transferred  to the 250 metre dock, which can accommodate standard Seaway size vessels. The bridge type shiploader is capable of loading vessels at a rate of up to 8,000 tonnes per hour.  TBTL also has a separate and dedicated dry-bulk handling system, which is used for potash and can handle a variety of free-flowing bulk commodities, including urea, grains and agricultural products.  Trains of up to 120 bottom dump hopper cars  can be handled via a dedicated loop track.  The dry bulk shed can accommodate up to 3 hopper cars.   Product is then directed via a conveying system to the common dock conveyor and shiploader.  Combined with the coal system, TBTL has storage space for up to 300 rail cars.
