BSI’s Operations at Big Creek Port Resulting in Savings

As for BSI/ASR’s decision to move operations to the Big Creek Port in the Stann Creek District, Carballo Avilez says that as a result, savings have been generated for the mill and farmers. 

Olivia Carballo-Avilez, Cane Farmers, Relations Manager BSI: “We were able to ship out over 30,000 tons of cane in one go, in eight days. So it reduced from around 46 to 50 days of loading a ship to around eight days and that included that we had some weather challenges during that time. We’ll have major savings because we’ve managed to decrease our loading rate from around 46 days to around 8 days and we’re hopefully going to be able to achieve less in other instances. But, that’s a major savings because each day that the ship is out there you have a charge so that’s where the savings are coming in from, from the ocean freight.”
