We have caffeine in our blood and offer wide awake solutions
For more than 50 years, J. MÜLLER has been operating in the green coffee logistics sector and it is a major partner of the coffee, cocoa and agricultural industry in Germany and Europe. We operate a modern transshipment facility and silo installations with storage capacities of more than 65,000 tonnes at our site in Bremen. The trimodal container terminal at the Hansakai pier is connected with numerous European container ports via rail, barge or truck transport. Furthermore, we maintain an exchange warehouse for ICE Futures Europe and IntercontinentalExchange® (NYSE: ICE).
The service range covers everything from transshipment, quality control and inspection, to storage as appropriate for the product, processing and packaging, up to the transport of green coffee and cocoa beans to the destination address. We can also readily take on the document and customs handling via ATLAS, plus the container trucking in addition. We work together with highly capable partners in the upstream and downstream logistics steps and in distribution.
Our services at a glance
The quality of the goods is our top priority. For this reason, we have established high-performance management systems in coordination with our customers. For example, we check each incoming container for its condition. We inspect the green coffee with regard to temperature and moisture, and make the measured values available to you online. Our silos are in line with the latest state of the art and permit the efficient storage with combined storage and transport containers that are approved for transport on roads, railways, inland waterways and sea transport. Our warehouses are certified according to the Öko [Organic], UTZ and IFS Food Standards. Furthermore, we are certified as warehouse operator for the commodities exchanges in London and New York.
Cleaning | Mixing
Our silo installations are provided with high-performance cleaning technologies, by means of which we prepare the green coffee for the further processing. If needed, we will additionally take on the mixing of green coffee sorts. Our charging scales work fully automatically and document each charge in our computing centre. The effective integration of our mixing cells in the stock removal processes meanwhile assures cost-optimised processes for you because stock transfers or interim storing is avoided. And the stock removal, too, offers the highest measure of efficiency to you: accordingly, you can call off your goods at any time on our self-serve terminals by means of a chip card and a PIN.
Storage logistics | Transport logistics
As the southernmost seaport of Germany, we offer diverse services for everything relating to container logistics. We record all movement data and provide them in real time in our online container management system. At the same time, the three-dimensional storage site management enables us to execute all orders efficiently and swiftly. For the transport to the destination address, we exclusively use silo dump trucks of the latest generation, which ensure a careful handling and transport. Our high-performance IT systems ensure a quick processing and the traceability of the batches in the process. We can make logistics transparent by means of an internet module including a customer-specific interface. But today we are already thinking of tomorrow and are working under high pressure integrating “Industrie 4.0” [the Internet of Things] in our processes.
Our customs experts see to a smooth presentation to customs and the monitoring of official deadlines. We are also happy to advise you on special questions relating to the value added tax and the German coffee tax. We process all imports via the ATLAS customs system and we have held the status of Authorised Economic Operator [AEO] since its introduction 10 years ago. For companies without registered office in Germany, we take on reporting duties as fiscal representatives in relation to the German tax authorities.
