Eliminate the risk of deliveries and bet on European production!
Unpredictability and instability have become now a reality for all of us.
The global lockdown, which has been lasting continuously for a year, has caused limitations to production capacity. At the same time, China, which consumes more than 50% of the world’s extraction of raw materials, returned to its full production capacity in May last year. This explains the shortages on the raw materials markets and the insane increases in their prices, which have exceeded 50% in the steel market in the last four months.
At the same time, the warming of economic relations between the two largest super powers – the US and China, caused that intercontinental transport focused on the East Asia – the USA direction. Unlocking economic cooperation has resulted in freeing hundreds of millions of shipments between these countries that had been frozen as a result of the trade war. This, in turn, has resulted in a shortage of means of intercontinental transport to serve destinations other than the US-China. At the same time, this has resulted in a sharp, even crazy increase in the prices of transporting containers from China, reaching even 500%, and generally limited their availability on an unprecedented scale. Consequently, the import of logistic carriers from East Asia practically stopped.
As a result, the order of circulation of raw materials and goods in the world, shaped over the past decades, has collapsed. The supply chain has broken.
Elkom Trade SA has been operating in the steel industry for years and knows it inside out. Thanks to the experience and established relationships with European suppliers of materials for the production of logistic carriers, such as mesh containers, rollcontainers, big-bag racks, etc., we can guarantee the availability of products at the current level. We wish to emphasize at this point that Elkom Trade SA manufactures in whole all its products on the spot, at our headquarters. The company does not import from other continents neither raw material nor components, let alone the finished products in any quantity. All production made by Elkom Trade SA is 100% made on the spot.
Mesh containers (automotive industry)
Containers for wine and champagne
Containers for bottles
Big bag holders
At the same time, we are able to guarantee the highest European quality of our products, supported by certificates of European origin of raw materials intended for their production.
All the activities undertaken by our company for years are reduced to delivering ordered products to customers within the agreed deadline. Timely deliveries, in turn, guaranteed that our customers could maintain the continuity of operational processes. We can say proudly that our main recipients have recently prequalified our company, giving us the status of the lowest delivery risk. It is extremely exciting that in the most critical moments we are able to help our partners so much and just when they need it the most.
It is of great importance to us to maintain this level, which is why we have devoted our greatest efforts to ensuring the availability of raw materials for the production of our products.
We also wish to inform you that our production capacity and inventory allow us to complete your orders without any problems. At the same time, due to the distance within one continent, we have eliminated the problem of minimum delivery requirements. Hence, deliveries to you do not have to, as in the case of intercontinental deliveries, contain a minimum quantity of products. Together, we can reduce and soothe the risk put by the current reality.
