ADVICE: TO SUPPLIERS
A supplier is defined by FTNX as “the entity in possession of export ready goods” who is able to bear the expenses associated with getting goods to port of loading at FOB or FCA Incoterms 2010 / 2020.
The ‘Buyer’ for goods offered by a supplier is FTNX. The supplier provides a private, confidential non binding Quote or in house formal form as found in the FTNX library called an “AOS.” Once the “AOS” is confirmed as being ‘acceptable’ by FTNX the goods are placed on our file for the 2021 trading year and distributed to our key FTNX Agents locates in port cities around the world. The supplier will not hear from us until we are ready to make the purchase. All “AOS” must have a minimum validity for 6 months or more. FTNX has discretion to accept a shorter validity date. Validity date of under 3 months are not considered nor are ‘Spot’ transactions. Fixed prices with added premium for future deliveries preferred, variable prices following a particular exchange price basis and fixed premium or discount is also considered.
By having anticipated stock on hand, FTNX will be able to service many more enquiries from our long standing clients. Unless stated differently, a legally binding aspect is apparent once offer is signed with FTNX. Once FTNX is prepared to buy goods as assured, an “Offer to Procure” (OTP) will be advised by FTNX. The supplier may consider the “OTP” intently based on the accpeted “AOS” or confirmed Quote. Once accepted the “OTP” is signed and returned to FTNX a legally binding status is in force from this time.The supplier then advises the PDF contract to FTNX by email. Supplier may ask FTNX to use our contract model if they choose. Once the contract is signed a copy by email is advised to FTNX. A hardcopy of the contract is also posted by courier mail. The email PDF copy allows the transaction to continue while awaiting the tracked postal hardcopy.
Within 7 days of contract signing date a financial instrument will be advised to the supplier supporting the full revolving contract value, as advised from a top 100 world ranked Australian bank for at sight collection process on presentation of clean transport documents. The supplier then advises it Performance Guarantee (P.G), once our DLC has been first accepted. First delivery at FOB or FCA Incoterms is initiated 35 days after the contract signing date on the nearest 15th day of a given month exceeding 30 days. All subsequent deliveries follow the first delivery date monthly. Above describes our standard orthodox trading process. Variations are considered on merit. The type goods we are interested to constantly buy are specified. Non listed goods are considered on merit.
ADVICE: END BUYERS
An end buyer is defined as “the entity paying for and accepting delivery of ordered goods at Port of Destination (POD) as purchased from the seller FTNX.” FTNX is no longer posting sourcing or sell prices on this website for goods already secured. Confidential enquires must be sought.
An end buyer may also ask FTNX to source goods for them by introducing themselves via a well defined email. If goods are already secured by FTNX, an Offer will be advised within 3 days. If goods need to be sourced from one of our past suppliers, an offer will be advised within 7 days. If we are unable to secure goods sought, the end buyer will be advised within 7 days. Interalia, ‘We were unable to secure the goods sought.’No reply means; were not interested in the goods offered such a time. Once the offer is signed and returned to the seller FTNX, a legally binding aspect becomes apparent. The seller will issue a contract. Once the contract is signed and returned as instructed therein; within 7 days thereafter, a bank issued financial instrument (DLC) to pay for goods ordered is advised to FTNX.
First delivery at FOB or FCA initiated within 35 days of contract signing date (or as agreed upon in the contract) and subsequent revolving deliveries every 30 days thereafter. All such matters will be prescribed fully on the offer and subsequent contract. CIF, CFR AND CIP delivery modes may be discussed at the time the offer is made, once destination port is known. FOB and FCA Incoterms will be the main delivery modes to be considered as FTNX. Due to strict safe procedures used FTNX is unable to use a Charter Party BOL as a presentation document as FTNX is required to provide a more expensive Shipowners BOL as specified under UCP International banking rules (added security measure). An end buyer purchasing goods at FOB or FCA therefore will be able to obtain a better freight rate than FTNX is able to offer may be presumed. FTNX Guarantees the goods it sells and offers a Performance Guarantee (PG) or LDD (Late Delivery Discount) if we are late with deliveries. FTNX will not hesitate to cancel a contract of supply, or pay compensation via TCR ( Transparent cash rebates ) if its found that the end buyer has been placed in a precarious financial situation due to no fault of their own. When dealing with FTNX, strict formidable and very safe trading processes apply.
