Marketing & Sales
A partner understanding physical metals
Operating with a solid understanding of commodity markets, Raffemet Commodities is a capable partner for both producers and industrial consumers of base metals.
To Producers, we offer marketing services, either as a principal or as an agent, providing market access and unlocking working capital. To consumers, we offer tailor made supply solutions in terms of volume, delivery, quality, financing and pricing.
Beyond the procurement or supply of commodities, our focus is on understanding our client’s needs and providing the services that meet their requirements.
With access to several brokers and banks we provide pricing of sales in local currencies. As commodity prices are volatile and margins for end products relatively small, it is crucial for our customers to understand and manage their price risk.
Raffemet Commodities can offer commodity pricing based on formulas, specific levels, specific dates or screen pricing. With years of hands-on knowledge of commodities hedging, we look to assist our counterparties with their price risk management and when needed demystify the particularities of financial commodity trading. Feel free to contact us if you have any particular questions or have an interest in a workshop or training.
Distributor & Logistics
Hands on experience
In a constantly changing and challenging market with pressure on working capital and stocks, Raffemet Commodities ensures in close cooperation with our customers timely releases and/or delivery of the materials purchased. Whether this is related to shipping, trucking, barging or rail, we will provide the service as required throughout the complete supply chain including the required documentation.
With many years of experience in global transport and distribution we have built an extensive network of reliable service providers, with whom we have established good, professional working relationships. Together with our service minded approach, these elements enable us to provide our customers with tailor made logistical solutions.
Access to capital
In today’s commodity markets, finance has become the cornerstone of business. From export pre-financing, through shipment and stock financing, to payment terms, access to capital is a key enabler. With the backing of reputable banks, Raffemet Commodities finances material through the supply chain and offers deferred payment terms to consumers. Equally important is the understanding and management of associated risks. As a robust partner, Raffemet Commodities has undertaken credit and marine/cargo insurance to ensure continuity of operations even in adverse circumstances.
