The Canadian Wheat Board exported 384,000 tonnes of wheat and durum through the Port of Churchill during the 2006 shipping season.

Director of Rail Logistics and Inventory Patty Rosher says that's up from the 353,000 tonnes last year and the annual average of 364,000.

The Board accounted for almost 80% of the total traffic exported through the port.

Rosher doesn't foresee increasing non-board grain volumes constraining the C.W.B.'s shipping program.

She says if non-board grain volumes were to increase significantly there would simply have to be better co-ordination between all the parties involved.

Customers who received grain from the port this year included Mexico, Spain, Ghana, and Tunisia.
