The terminal’s objectives include ensuring that sugar is available on short notice, that there is space to handle more than one grade of sugar and most importantly that the industry could strategically time the sale of sugar into overseas markets.
The total raw sugar capacity of the three silos is 525 000 tons. The terminal is efficiently managed by an Operations Manager, together with the following departments: Safety (ensuring a safe working environment, compliance with relevant standards and regulations); Engineering (ensuring that the plant is operational at all times), Intake (responsible for the efficient receipting and dispatch of sugar, also assists during ship-loading) and Quality (sugar samples are taken and analysed by the laboratory to ensure that the relevant quality standards are met).
