Hello, my name is Ann-Kathrin Huber, and I am your contact for all questions around imports and exports. That includes the raw materials or specialities we source globally from countries like Mauritius, Colombia, Brazil or Paraguay, or the specialities we export, such as Bee Feed, our unique Compri sugar for pharmaceutical applications, or our wide range of fondants.
As your service provider, we want to make life as easy as possible for you. Since I am in charge of the planning and execution of imports and exports, for me that includes:
- creating shipping plans for all our partners to ensure smooth processes and transition
- managing customer contracts
- preparing all necessary customs documents for our customs agent
- preparing and distributing requested specifications or other product documents (CoA, Certificate of Origin, shipments documents, etc.)
- organising and managing shipments to our commercial port in Antwerp and further transport to production or storage facilities
- re-scheduling and adjusting delivery windows to your destination to reduce waiting times and costs, or taking care of your short-term needs
- Aligning product stock in warehouses with production and onward shipment (air / land / sea) to your shipment’s destination
We want to make sure that you are always happy with our partnership. That’s why we continuously optimise our processes, examine external partners, and proactively keep you informed to guarantee your satisfaction every step of the way. To make sure that we can always deliver the best possible service to you, we cultivate reliable long-term relationships with our partners, operate with a high degree of transparency, and address your changing needs flexibly, regardless of the sometimes considerable time differences between us.

Hello, my name is Michael Radesinsky. I am a team leader for the dispatch of bulk goods in silo (crystalline) and tank trucks (liquid) for the DACH region.
In Customer Service, we manage and process your requests and orders as the interface between sales, supply chain, production facilities and warehouses.
Our team is not only responsible for the internal and external order and process planning with our logistics partners, but we also find solutions for late and short-term changes to scheduled shipments. Our service includes:
- Quickly adjusting shipment when you change your order (e.g. need less or more sugar, an additional truck, etc.)
- Planning delivery routes for shipments or re-allocation after order adjustments
- Aligning delivery windows with your preferences
- Steering logistics service partners to always guarantee the delivery of goods to you
- Assisting with control and coordination in the event of deviations in the contract quantities compared to your call-off quantity or the validity of the contract
Because we make a point of always keeping the lines of communication open with you, we’re able to react very quickly to your changing needs. Let us know what you need, and we’ll find a solution that works for you.
Our ongoing dialogue with you is also crucial for learning from you how we are doing, and as a guide for evaluating our partners – something we do regularly so that we can guarantee you the best service possible.
Nothing makes us happier than the frequent positive feedback we get for our flexible, customer-oriented approach, and uncompromising product availability – even for emergency-, or short-term orders. We promise we’ll keep it up!
– Michael Radesinsky, Team Leader Dispatch Bulk & Liquid Goods
Dzień dobry and hello, my name is Anna Fryźlewicz. I have been a Senior Customer Service Specialist for Südzucker for over 15 years now. I am responsible for planning, organising, and fulfilling the orders of our retail and industrial customers that come through our production facility in Ropczyce.
That includes orders from consumer packs of up to 25 kg to bulk packaging for the processing industry. Since Ropczyce is the only SZP production facility in Poland that produces Icing Sugar (with or without starch) for industry applications and retail, most of our orders are for varieties of Icing Sugars.
I am responsible for supporting the entire process from order to invoice and will always look to find your best solution with you. Our goal is to listen to you closely, learn all about your needs and execute accordingly. That may include:
- Special maximum capacities of shipment size in your desired shipment destination
- Specific delivery forecasts or clear communication of estimated delivery times
- Using specific transport modes (e.g. refrigerated transport)
- Using a specific third-party logistics provider from our network that meets your needs
We also understand how vital transparent communication is to you. We strive to make your life easier by regularly updating you about incoming deliveries. If your processes call for it, we can also use your tools and digital platforms for delivering updates. If you prefer picking your order up, you can indicate that in our system and choose a convenient pickup date. If you opt for delivery, you’ll be the first to know about any delays on the road, so you can plan reception and production accordingly.
I am proud of the positive feedback we regularly get about our operational flexibility and customer-centric approach to finding the best solutions. We are very much looking for long-term cooperation, learning as much as possible about your business. Do you have specific needs or challenges? Even if it’s just certificates or delivery notes, let me know – I’ll be delighted to help you.
– Anna Fryźlewicz, Senior Customer Service Specialist, Packed Goods, Poland
