Understanding GTA Location Differentials

Posted by | Harvest Information, Receival Site Services & Location Differentials | No Comments

GTA Location Differentials (LDs) are widely used by the Australian grain industry to price “port-based” contracts, in particular, the GTA Contract No 2 Grain and Oilseeds in Bulk – Basis Track commonly known as the “Track Contract”.

The majority of grain produced in Australia will, at some stage, be priced and transacted on a “port-based” contract, which refers to the GTA LDs. LDs are not freight rates or freight differentials.
