I think Doc Crane might be a bit surprised that East Coast elevation is now equal or slightly cheaper than the West. Considering the significantly higher volumes in the WA export supply chain, I would think they need to be lowered further..

Quick..! Now is your chance to blame high world stocks, low Black Sea local currency / high farmer returns and Low Oil / reduced Aussie freight advantage on the Mega Merchants. The same Mega Merchants that have been losing significant amounts of $$ over the past 5 years, with some closing their operations.
