Agspring has announced the creation of a new, evolutionary subsidiary, Agforce Logistics.

Agforce will employ discrete teams of veteran agricultural-trade-flow experts to efficiently manage commodities anywhere from the point of origin through downstream processing and consumption.

Agforce seeks to bring resourceful logistical alternatives to niche commodity market suppliers and end users. The organization will operate as an asset-light, midstream business utilizing logistics industry best practices to solve the unique challenges of crops with domestic origination and/or consumption.

“Agricultural trade flows continue to grow and change dynamically across the globe,” said Brad Clark, president of Agspring. “We believe the time is right for strategic teams that can leverage best practices, such as third and fourth-party logistics, to meet the evolving needs of growers, aggregators and downstream processors.”

Agforce will benefit from the financial, technology and corporate shared-service resources that currently serve other operating companies in the Agspring network. The organization will emphasize entrepreneurism and a client-centric culture driven by subject matter experts passionate about the markets they serve.

Agspring maintains decentralized operations and puts in place leadership teams who desire to grow into new markets including grains and oilseeds, livestock feed ingredients, and consumer food ingredients.
