Bulk bitumen suppliers
We as Bulk bitumen suppliers, offer bulk bitumen to all interested parties. Due to the limitation of bulk bitumen vessels in Iran, we offer bulk bitumen on a FOB Bandar Abbas basis only. Unfortunately, the cost of chartering a bulk bitumen vessel is high. In almost most all cases it is not a cost effective form of transportation of bitumen. With that said,some countries don’t import drum bitumen and the costs associated with purchasing bulk bitumen are acceptable.
Bulk bitumen price
Bulk bitumen’s price is an average of 40.00 USD per metric tons less than drummed bitumen. The shipping cost of bulk bitumen is generally higher than bitumen shipped in containers. For example, the cost of containers to one port may cost 10.00 USD/MT while shipping the goods via a bulk vessel may cost well over 30.00 USD/MT at least to the same destination.
Method of payment for bulk bitumen
When buying bulk bitumen, unlike bitumen drums the method of payment is TT and not LC. Usually a advance payment is given and the balance is paid during loading. In order to bring your bitumen to the port and store it in storage tanks we require an advance payment of no less than 10-20%. This is because the cost of transportation fees via bitumen tankers and storage fees are considerable. We realize that certain clients have genuine concerns and reservations about paying an advance payment to bitumen suppliers they are just beginning a relationship with. With that said, we are confident that through productive communication, visit of our offices and refinery a mutually trusted relationship can be established. When you are dealing with a end supplier and meet them and visit their facilities this can help you in making a safe decision about the partner you choose.
