We ensure that our suppliers are carefully screened for experience, quality, and professionalism so that our clients have a smooth transaction. We also provide complete shipping solutions to meet the unique needs of each of our clients and vendors. Our logistics team will evaluate the time, cost, and feasibility of shipping your materials with multiple shipping sources in order to find the most cost effective and efficient method for the transportation of your sourced materials.

2. What is our role & position in transaction?
Our role in every transaction varies from contract to contract being End supplier to consultant to indenter or ourselves importer. We are direct & important link between suppliers and buyer worldwide.

3. I have contacted you many times but you have not responded?
If your request emails includes any of following demands or request we will not respond.

  • Payment of first shipment at the port of arrival
  • Long term contracts (12 months minimum) conditioned to performance of first shipment.
  • LOIs and/or ICPOs issued on blank papers without the letterhead, buyer's name and/or buyer's coordinates.
  • Requests to visit the storage facility before the hard copies of the contract are signed and sealed by both parties.
  • Copy of Bill of Ladings or other documents relative to previous deliveries, sanitized or otherwise.
  • Request to produce a picture of the goods.

To fully understand the reluctance of the supplier to consider paying attention to any of the above, one must accept the notion that respectable end users, suppliers and brokers alike are committed to operate with the highest degree of ethic and professionalism if they wish to enjoy a perpetual flow of business.

Requests like the one listed above serve no practical purpose because they do not guarantee availability of product, quality, delivery nor excellence of service. A visit to the storage site is a useless waste of time and money because, like in our case, the suppliers have storage in all 5 Continents and has the option in the contract to ship the used metal from anyone of his storage facilities in accordance to commitments made to other buyers, the distance from the port of loading and the ports of discharge and atmospheric conditions.
