The grain conveyance piers serve the "Dagon" Israel Granaries Company.
Grain is moved by three unloaders which convey the grain directly to the storage silos.
"Dagon" Granaries have a nominal capacity of 90,000 tons and are used for the unloading, storage and onward transportation of grain by train and truck.
The granaries are managed and operated by the "Dagon" Israel Granaries Company Ltd. and owned by the Israel Port Authority.
Three mobile unloaders, two pneumatic and one mechanical, operate on the quay where water depth reaches 13.3 meters. They unload grain from ships and transfer it to the grain silo by a usage of conveyer belts installed inside concrete bridges that stretch over the Port. The three unloaders have an operational capacity of approximately 1,800 tons per hour. The mechanical unloader was built locally according to an Israeli development which has since been patented in most of the world's industrialized countries and which has a capacity of some 1,200 tons per hour. The pneumatic unloaders are new and each one has an unloading capacity of some 600 tons per hour.
Stored grain is loaded onto railcars and trucks at a rate of up to 15,000 tons a day.
The silos operate 24 hours a day except for the Sabbath and religious holidays.
