Cane Receivals Enhancements at NSW Sugar

For the 2018 season, a major upgrade was undertaken at the three NSW sites (Broadwater, Condong and Harwood). The system was extended to include end of week processing and a standard interface was provided for the new payment system. Additionally, the Road Receivals Mimic, which was trialled last season, was rolled out to the three sites. It provides a complete overview of the consignment, delivery and processing cycle as the cane deliveries progress from the field to the factory.
