CSAPO's trading keeps the Community market fluid by moving sugar from countries in surplus to countries in deficit, in particular Italy. It also provides a link with international markets. Within the EU, Italy is in fact the main importer, importing more than 1.5 million tons per year. Most of Italy's imports are in the form of white sugar bought directly from European producers. CSAPO provides a number of leaders in the sugar market with continuous supplies. Thanks to a proven logistics system, it can satisfy the needs of both customers and suppliers punctually and flexibly.
Evolving market rules have led CSAPO to support European companies exporting their products outside the Community. These are able to use sugar coming from third countries to make their products without having to pay import duties, but the end product must obligatorily be exported on the world market. This mechanism is known as Inward Processing Relief (IPR). CSAPO monitors the entire process for its customers, from purchase through logistics, administration and customs formalities up to delivery.
Logistics management plays a key role with a substantial influence on the end price. Only effective management of transport, storage and warehousing can therefore guarantee maximum efficiency by optimising costs. CSAPO has a proactive approach to its customers' needs and always tries to offer made-to-measure solutions to their requirements.
