Terminal Elevator

Terminal Elevator

A large storage facility for agricultural products, especially grain. A terminal elevator allows investors to store their purchases prior to or after delivery. A terminal elevator does not differentiate which investor owns what grain; therefore, it is possible that products will mix together. An exchange must recognize a facility as a terminal elevator before it may be used as one.
