Trading company Limako well prepared for more volatility

Limako Suiker BV is an international trading company that imports and exports high-quality sugar and offers every customer a tailor-made approach. However, that approach combined with the logistics operation demands a high service level.

Since the EU’s export quota system for sugar ended in 2017, the market has become more volatile. Involvation is working together with Limako and its supply chain partners to analyse the impact of various market-development scenarios: how can the company capitalize on market growth? The aim of this project is to improve the management and the agility of the end-to-end supply chain for sugar export.
