Ensure a safe journey for your grain

With our ship loading and unloading solutions

Global trade is increasing all the time, which is why we’ve designed our ship loaders and unloaders to handle the highest capacities with maximum efficiency.

Bühler’s gentle and reliable ship loading and unloading technology means you can always rest assured that your grain will have the safest journey possible.

Our loading and unloading systems are the industry’s standard-setters when it comes to efficiency, reliability, safety – and operating costs. Gentle handling not only ensures breakage is kept to an absolute minimum, but also reduces both energy consumption and wear and tear on your machinery. And all of this while still achieving truly impressive capacities – our loaders can load up to 3,000 tons per hour, and our unloaders up to 1,300 tons per hour of grains, oilseeds and derivatives.
