A lot of Canadian companies export their goods, especially those in the food production sector. For example, Canada exported $2.3 billion worth of soybeans in 2015. The majority of pulse exports are shipped in ocean containers to Asian markets. In order to maximize shipping space and export as efficiently as possible, it is in the exporter’s best interest to fill the ocean container as much as possible. In our business, we know it’s very difficult to get a bulk bag that has “pumpkined” into an ocean container vessel.
