FSC takes charge

THE Fiji Sugar Corporation has taken over the management of all cane lorry transportation of harvested cane.

Executive chairman Abdul Khan said as of this week, all cane lorry logistics were being managed by the corporation.

"We had to do this because farmers used to be at a serious disadvantage in the past," he said.

"Many times, growers that booked lorries were left to run around at the last minute because the lorries did not arrive on time or not at all.

"We now manage that in consultation with the individual farmer.

"We ensure that alternative transport is available if a lorry that is booked is not able to attend to a certain farm.

"As I had previously said, we are doing this to ensure a smooth transition of harvested cane from the field to the mill in the minimum amount of time.

"This will ensure fresh green cane is moved as quickly as possible to our mills."

There are about 1700 registered cane lorries operating in the country
