Before cargo is unloaded, a visual check is carried out and
a sample is taken by J. Müller Agri Terminal representatives.
The samples are analyzed in the company’s own laboratory.
The parameters for these analyses are set out in the control
schedules drawn up for incoming cargoes. Considerable
quantities of the imported consignments are loaded onto
river barges and motor coasters as well as onto railway
wagons and trucks. A load compartment inspection is
performed before any consignment is transferred to a barge
or a seagoing vessel. Many criteria are checked in the course
of this inspection. Loading can only begin after the load
