Sugar, molasses, beet pulp inspection and others
Sugar, molasses, beet pulp inspection is a process of quality control of goods at different stages of logistic chain, which minimizes major trade risks related to the likelihood of cargo delivered or received not according to agreed specification, not being supplied in agreed quantity or incomplete set of accompanying documents agreed between parties for sugar, molasses, beet pulp export/import operations is issued and received.
CISS GROUP provides sugar, molasses, beet pulp inspection services to large agribusinesses and international trading companies in intermediate storage warehouses, factories or ports around the world.
The distinctiveness of sugar, molasses and beet pulp inspection is that special care must be taken with these products to prevent damage to the goods, especially from the ingress of water or moisture. If sugar is not dry enough relatively to the environment, it may continue to lose its moisture during storage, stacking or packaging. If sugar is too dry, it will absorb moisture from the atmosphere, increasing its weight. If sugar is too dry, it can lose its shiness and crumble. Thus, the temperature should not exceed 30 ° С and be not lower than 0 ° С. The relative humidity of the air for granulated sugar should not exceed 70%, for refined sugar it is maximum 80%. Temperature fluctuations can cause sweating and moisture damage of the sugar, a defect that cannot be easily and economically corrected by further processing.
Competent inspectors and laboratory technicians from CISS GROUP carry out sugar, molasses, beet pulp inspection at any point of the supply chain.

Acceptance of cleanliness containers / holds of vessels before loading sugar, molasses, beet pulp.
This is a visual inspection of containers and empty holds for their cleanliness and suitability for sugar, molasses, beet pulp transportation. The inspector carefully examines their internal surfaces, checks the integrity and condition of locks, hinges and other fasteners on the container doors, rubber seals for container doors and hold covers.
Visual control of the loading process and sampling of sugar, molasses, beet pulp.
During loading, the inspector controls the loading of sugar, molasses or beet pulp, confirming the gross / net weight during re-weighing. In the case of loading sugar, molasses or beet pulp into the holds - the initial, intermediate and final check of the weight of the loaded cargo by the draft survey method could be performed. Additionally our inspectors can control the fumigation process; conduct a visual assessment of the quality of the cargo, take samples in accordance with applicable sampling rules and form composite samples. Inspections are carried out in accordance with internal control procedures and standards of RSAL (Refined Sugar Association of London), SAL (London Sugar Association) or NYK 11.
