North American Distribution Facilities

The CF Advantage

Fertilizer use is time-sensitive. When spring arrives, farmers race the clock to get their crops into the field, planting and fertilizing millions of acres across the country in a matter of days. The only sure way to meet their demand for fertilizer is to have product inventories “staged” in the market at distribution facilities with high volume, state-of-the-art handling equipment.

The nation’s logistics network simply can’t meet farmers’ fertilizer needs on a just-in-time delivery basis from distant sites.

The location of our distribution facilities in North America—most in key Corn Belt markets, served by multiple modes of inbound and outbound transportation—can often provide important advantages in serving nearby customers, since shipping small amounts of fertilizer products over long distances is generally not economical.
