3 Taiwan s land area is about 36,000 square kilometers. 2/3 of the lands are mountains and slope lands with cultivated land rate only 22%. Taiwan, one of the primary agricultural importing countries in the world, is highly dependent on the import of raw materials for domestic food supply( Over 90% ). Reducing losses in the grains supply chain is important. 3

40 Bulk in Container 40

41 Prevent Damages 1.Break Bulk Commodities quality Taking attention to loading quality especially in Summer Select vessel condition Request suitable vessel for loading grains (Control the fuel oil heating temp. under 50 C) Ventilation to control the temperature Ask the inside temperature difference not over 3 C Weather condition during operating Loading and unloading in good weather condition 41

42 Prevent Damages Use hopper to reduce leakage Clean up the floor grains Immediately 42

43 Prevent Damages Ventilation to keep the temperature difference not more then 3 C between inside the hatch and atmosphere 43

44 Prevent Damages 2. Container Pre check before loading Check condition of container (Seal, air vent, plank and bottom wood floor) Commodities quality Request supplier to make grains moisture content better with 12.5% Using Desiccating tool Desiccating agent or moisture proof paper Loading weather Avoid loading on rainy day Check after unloading Make sure complete unloading and cleaning the residual grains in container & frame 44

45 Prevent Damages 45

46 Prevent Damages High Moisture content may cause wet damage Desiccating agent Reduce humidity about 35-50% or 100g/cubic m, 4,000g/20 & 8,000g/40 Recommendation qty. (sailing days) size/days ' 5 to 8 8 to to to 15 40' 10 to to to to 30 Moisture proof paper 46

47 Prevent Losses 3. Truck transportation Leakage prevent Keep unloading door tight. Avoid overfilling Plant wt. check Complete unloading Weight check and check cabinet Rain or dust coversheet Prevent water damage or leakage Avoid operating in raining day Check the condition before loading and unloading. Directly transit grains to process 47

48 Prevent Losses Coversheet Door to prevent strong wind 48

49 Prevent Losses Open truck loading chute (Extendable) 49

50 Storage Management Silo & Warehouse FIFO(First in first out) Keep the storage period especially in Summer Regular cleaning and fumigation Silo or warehouse should regular clean Disinfect or fumigation after emptying out Prevent birds/animals taking Temperature monitoring and controlling Control the storage condition especially in Summer Grain cooling system of the silo 50

52 Storage Management Prevent Birds Taking Birds-preventing Net 52

53 Storage Management Grains Cooling System 53

54 Storage Management Temperature monitoring and controlling 54

55 SUMMARY 1. As we calculating, the losses rate in Transportation is about 0.1% 2. If we could do above-mentioned measures, over 800,000 metric tons would be saved every year in the world 55
