Our goal is to be our customers’ partner of choice
Through our dedicated account teams and their feedback from over 600 individual customer visits per year, we have created a number of new services that can add value to your business.
Risk management solutions
Structured pricing solutions: Our offering includes fixed- or floating-pricing structures for medium- or long-term contracts. Such structures protect our customers against market volatility while providing flexibility in managing your shipping schedules.
Bunker hedging:Through our petroleum trading activities we are able to provide our customers with short- or long-term solutions to manage bunker price volatility. These can be fixed through physical contracts or managed more dynamically via derivatives giving more stable and predictable freight rates.
Physical fleet swap: Running your own fleet in today’s challenging environment may not be the most economical or efficient solution for your business. It also opens your business to a higher risk profile if something should happen while loading or discharging cargoes. With our global fleet and flows, Cargill can offer a solution where you retain the benefits and flexibility of a time charter fleet without the operational risks, hassle and cost.
Freight advisory and position management: Through our access and insights to major commodity and financial markets, we can offer select customers market advice for a competitive edge in your industry.
Deferred Freight Payment terms: Through Cargill’s financial strength, we can offer our customers preferential payment terms anywhere from 60 to 180 days.
Financing your commodity supply chain: From origin to destination and including storage, your commodity and freight supply chain can be financed by Cargill’s finance arm; easing the pressure on your cash flow.
