General guidelines for submitting inquiries to Supplier Relations
Email your Inquiries! Cargill’s preferred method of communication is email.
Ask one type of question per inquiry. For example, do not submit a past due payment inquiry with a new address notification. Similarly, be sure to send a separate inquiry for each business you support.
Give us as much information as possible.
Read the responses you receive from Supplier Relations and follow directions. If information is requested from Supplier Relations, please send it back attached to the inquiry email chain per the instructions (do not submit requested information via a new email chain).
Manage your own inquiries. Cargill employees should not be filing inquiries on your behalf.
Avoid ccing other email addresses on your inquiries unless Supplier Relations specifically requests that you do so. Supplier Relations will only responding to the supplier email that submitted the inquiry.
Send each inquiry once, using the same email chain for back and forth communication. New emails create duplications that can be confusing and will create extra work for Supplier Relations and a possible delay in them responding to you.
Please do not forward Marketing/ Promotional mails.
Guidelines when submitting past due inquiries
Include invoice copies or related documentation (i.e. packing slip, bill of lading, or remittance notice, as applicable) so Supplier Relations can respond efficiently to the request.
Remember that Supplier Relations only reviews past due balances. Past due is defined by the payment terms on a PO or purchase agreement unless otherwise defined by your contact at Cargill. Payment inquiries for payments that are not yet due will be rejected back to the supplier.
Guidelines for submitting inquiries about payment/credit discrepancies
If a response from Supplier Relations shows a partial payment has been made and you need clarification on the difference, respond to Supplier Relations with a request for an accounting of the difference so that you can apply the payment correctly and clear the difference as required.
Guidelines for inquiries relating to remittance notices or pay application
When asking for remittance notice or payment application information please supply:
Cargill payment number
If additional information is needed on a Remittance notice you have received from Cargill, please provide a copy of the remittance notice to us for reference.
Guidelines for submitting Statements of Accounts to Cargill
PLEASE NOTE Supplier Relations only reviews past due balances. Past due is defined by the payment terms on a PO or purchase agreement unless otherwise defined by your contact at Cargill. Payment inquiries for payments that are not yet due will be rejected back to the supplier.
Cargill works to review all statement of accounts submitted to Supplier Relations but cannot guarantee this in all cases. Suppliers should submit past due payment inquiries per the guidelines above.
