I am wendy from Henan lichen Aluminum Co., Ltd. I remember I received the inquiry in March 2019. The inquiry is of the aluminum strip 6061 T6 with size 1.0x69mm in 6tons, and Mr. N needs it in hurry. After offering quotation and quality certificate, He hoped us to deliver it in 21 working days. Here we checked with production, if for regular coil, it is no problem, but there will be one more slitting, and now slitting orders are too much. After negotiation, we decided to make one slitting line free to proceed when the coil was ready. But there is another problem that for alloy 6061 generally the billet output is 12tons, which means there will be half remaining after this order. Here we checked again with our production department, after checking we can make special billet weight as 10tons, after slitting the weight might be around 9tons. So here I contacted Mr. N and explained the current situation. Mr. N checked with his company and expressed their understanding, and finally agreed to add the quantity to 9tons.
Under the required time, the goods were finished. When contacting Mr. N for delivery, I was informed that they wanted to firstly deliver 2 tons by air cause of the hurry. We all know that freight with 2tons by air was very high. On another side, we knew Mr. N had some concerns, cause it was his first time buying from China. Hereafter checking with the manager, we proceeded as Mr. N’s requirement. But here I also checked the railway cost, half cheaper. So here I suggested Mr. N to delivery 1ton by air for hurry demand, the other 1 ton by railway, and for the remaining 7tons by sea. It could save a lot of costs. Mr. N agreed and expressed his gratitude for our sweet concerns. Within one week, 1 ton was already in Mr. N’s warehouse and caught up with the production. And then we delivered 1 ton by railway and the remaining 7tons by sea. That is to say with these 9tons of goods, we sent through air, land, and sea. It was a special experience.
A CUSTOMER FROM THE USA WANT TO BUY 5083 marine alloy plate and Rectangle tube
Last year, I received a call from Mexico. He told me that his name is Scott, an American, and he works in a shipyard in Mexico. They need a batch of aluminum plates and aluminum square tubes. The length of the aluminum plates is 8 meters and the square tubes are 6 Meters long, but the quantity is not too many, transportation has become a big problem. I actively communicated with the shipping company to explain the situation. Because it is an LCL, aluminum plates and aluminum square tubes cannot be placed in the lower part of the container, because there may be A heavy object deformed the aluminum plate and the aluminum square tube. Finally, with my efforts, the customer received all the goods safely
