Cargill Ltd. announced last week that it will hire an outside company to handle transportation of the beef produced at its Guelph, Ontario, Canada, plant. The decision will help Cargill deal with escalating transportation costs in the highly competitive eastern Canadian retail market, the company said in a statement

Spokeswoman Brigitte Burgoyne said the move affects transportation within three to four hours of Toronto. International freight is already handled outside the company. About 50 unionized and non-union employees will lose their jobs with Cargill, reports Reuters.
