As distributor selling metals directly to customers
As distributor Raffemet Commodities acts as a traditional merchant, selling metals to consumers on their preferred terms, which involves timely deliveries to works, payment terms and management of price and currency exposures. To secure supply we have close contacts with a range of suppliers and stockpile material for the future needs of our client base. This service is more focused on smaller and medium-sized buyers of primary aluminium with requirements beyond the standardized offering of the larger suppliers. Raffemet Commodities works with credit insurance allowing us to transact with a wide range of customers.
As intermediate bridging the gap between producer and consumer terms
As producers more and more seek to sell on CIF and cash payment basis while European consumers continue to prefer to receive material delivered at plant with payment terms, the gap in preferred contract terms between both parties is widening. For producers and consumers who prefer to keep a direct relationship with each other, but are unable to accept each others commercial terms, Raffemet Commodities can fulfill the role of a neutral intermediate. As facilitator we act as provider of services that producers are no longer offering such as storage, logistics, payment terms and price risk management.
