|Cotton should be stored in appropriate warehousing to preserve its quality and value, and Calcot operates three warehousing locations to do just that.
Unlike many cotton marketers, Calcot owns its warehousing facilities. Over a million bales can be quickly and safely stored to protect growers’ cotton, maximizing value for our owners as well as cotton buyers. Owning the warehouses means Calcot has full control over shipping and fulfilling sales.
Our warehouses are operated as a key part of the cotton marketing chain, and multi-function warehouse teams efficiently move bales through facilities at the lowest possible cost, while responding to the needs of customers in a rapidly changing market environment.
During our peak seasonduring the autumn harvestour crews work additional hours on all necessary days to ensure grower needs and customer service are maintained at the highest possible level.
Calcot warehousing practices in many ways set a benchmark within the cotton industry. Through rapid assimilation and utilization of innovative technologies, Calcot is able to ship cotton faster than anyone, anywhere in the world.
Calcot not only stores cotton for members but will contract with outside marketers to store non-members’ cotton. More information on tare and locations is on the tariff pages in this section.
