They are responsible for loading and unloading produce in all transport vehicles, crates, deep-bin pallets, and containers in their natural form, packaged or processed. We provide training on safe loading and unloading of yams based on variety, physical and viscoelastic properties, time-dependent relaxation behavior, mechanical damage, vibration, stacking height & density, and resistance to elastic deformation.
Customers/consumers are not permitted to load and unload yams by themselves as they may lack the skill and training to prevent injury and bruises to the yams. Members are issued membership certificates and identity cards. The identity card is renewed based on payment of annual subscriptions.
