Where we have major contracts we occasional work down to the local plant level and monitor the production and storage numbers daily along with the client. This allows us to bring in the correct sized ships in the best timing to allow optimum inventory planning for our clients.
In other cases we supply the shipping and logistics for not only our own product, but the full import or export supply of the client to avoid issues of too many barges or ships from different customers or suppliers arriving at the same time, resulting in long waiting time and demurrage costs.
We work not only on a spot or annual basis with our clients, but also in some cases on a long term ever green basis.
We are of course there to help in emergencies as well where tanks are full and customers not available, and in these cases we will arrange floating storage or land storage to allow the production facilities to run unhindered and cut back due to inventory overflow.
