*** Oil Supply Chain Update 2021 ***

The lubricants industry is facing unprecedented issues in the supply chain which are affecting base oils and additives used in all lubricant products. 

As you may be aware, over the recent months there has been a global reduction in base oil stock availability due to Covid-19 pandemic.  There has also been planned refinery maintenance, unplanned refinery shutdowns and the blockage in the Suez Canal. 

Many suppliers have restricted supply and prices have risen drastically.

Chemical Corporation is working very closely with Exxon Mobil to manage this situation for our customers.  We have put measures in place to limit the impact on our customers and to effectively manage our stock quota each month.

The will make the following changes for existing customers with immediate effect:

  • We can no longer offer customers one month’s notice on price changes.
  • Orders will be reviewed on a daily basis to ensure we distribute our stock to multiple customers.  You will be advised if there is a supply issue.
  • Certain products might be on longer lead times due to supply shortages and you will be advised if this becomes the case.

We want to make sure we keep your machines and equipment running and will keep you updated with developments. You can check our main news section for updates, call us or speak to your account manager.

Chemical Corporation (UK) Ltd Terms and Conditions of Sale (Hereinafter referred to as “The Company”) These Conditions of Sale shall apply to all contracts without variation, except as agreed in writing by the Company with the customer. The customer is the person, persons, or company forming a contract to purchase goods from the Company.

1 LOSS OR DAMAGE (i) The Company shall repair or replace free of charge goods, supplied by the Company, damaged in transit or not delivered in accordance with the Delivery Note provided that the Company is given written notification of such damage or non-delivery within such time (being not more than three days) as will enable the Company to comply with the carrier’s conditions of carriage as affecting loss or damage in transit, or, where delivery is made by the Company’s own transport, within five days after receipt of the Delivery Note. (ii) The Company shall not be responsible for goods supplied by the Company which become faulty as a result of the customer, and the customer shall indemnify the Company in relation to all claims made against the Company in connection with such faulty goods.

2 DELIVERY Unless stated to the contrary in the customer’s order and accepted by the Company all times or dates for delivery of the goods are given in good faith but are approximate only and time shall not be of the essence of the contract. The Company is entitled to suspend or delay delivery and shall not be liable for any loss whatsoever in the event of such late delivery or non-delivery of goods (or any instalments) where beyond its control.

3 PRICES AND QUOTATIONS (i) All quotations are based on current prices listed in the current editions of the manufacturers’ price lists but such quotations are subject to alteration in accordance with prices current at the time of despatch of the goods. (ii) All prices quoted on invoices including proforma invoices are subject to the addition of Value Added Tax at the rate current at the time of despatch. (iii) A quotation made by the Company shall not constitute an offer. All quotations are valid for thirty days, after which time, the Company reserves the right to amend the prices if the customer has not accepted the quote within the specified time.

4 PAYMENT AND SETTLEMENT TERMS (i) Customers who wish to open credit facilities shall apply in writing to the Company quoting the credit limit required and the names and addresses of two current commercial references and one Bankers reference by e-mail or fax. (ii) Payment is due promptly by the end of the month following the month in which the invoice is raised, unless otherwise notified by us in writing. When payment is overdue, the Company reserves the right to charge interest on the amount overdue at such rate as may be permitted by law from time to time. Late payment shall entitle the Company to take legal action to recover outstanding accounts, without further notice to the customer. The Company may suspend deliveries to a customer who is in default until all arrears have been paid. (iii) Where a credit customer is in default in the payment of any account then all sums owed to the Company by the customer on any account whatsoever become immediately due and payable in full. (iv) Where a cheque is offered by the customer in payment for goods, the Company reserves the right to delay the despatch of the goods pending the clearance of that cheque. (v) Any application for credit facilities may be refused by the Company without giving any good reason to the applicant.

5 RETENTION OF TITLE (i) The customer acknowledges that before entering into an agreement for the purchase of any goods from the Company he has expressly represented and warranted that he is not insolvent and has not committed any act of bankruptcy, or, being a company with limited or unlimited liability, knows of no circumstances which would entitle any debenture holder or secured creditor to appoint a receiver, administrative receiver, or liquidator, to petition for winding-up of the company or exercise any other rights against the company’s assets. (ii) Goods supplied by the Company to the customer, shall be at the risk of the customer as soon as they are delivered by the Company to his vehicle or his premises or another destination on his instructions. The customer shall insure the goods from date of delivery for the full replacement value until full legal and beneficial title to the goods has passed to the customer on full payment. (iii) Such goods shall remain the sole and absolute property of the Company as legal and equitable owner until such a time as the customer shall have made payment in full to the Company. The Company reserves the right to enter the customer’s premises from time to time on prior notice for the purpose of inspecting the goods and identifying them as the property of the Company. (iv) Until such time as the customer becomes the owner of the goods, he will store them on his premises separately from his own goods or those of any other person and in a manner which makes them readily identifiable as the goods of the Company. The Company may for the purpose of recovery of its goods enter upon any premises where they are stored or where they are reasonably thought to be stored and may repossess the same where goods have not been paid for in full. The customers right to possession to the goods shall terminate on the happening of any of the circumstances mentioned in condition 5(I).

6 CARRIAGE AND DELIVERY (i) The customer shall comply with condition 6. (ii) Check all goods delivered by the Company or its representative and on delivery the customer shall sign the delivery note for the goods in the presence of the Company’s, or its representative’s driver. (iii) On delivery the customer shall refuse any goods found to be damaged and mark the delivery note accordingly. (iv) Any claims over damaged goods or discrepancies between the goods listed on the delivery note and the goods delivered to the customer must be submitted to the Company with full particulars of the order, the delivery note, the advice note, and other relevant information in writing within 24 hours of delivery, failing which the Company cannot accept liability. (v) If the customer does not receive the goods within 7 days of the date of invoice, he is required to notify the Company immediately thereafter, otherwise no liability can be accepted.

7 GUARANTEES The Company gives no guarantee or warranty on goods supplied by the Company other than that given by the manufacturers concerned.

(ii) Where goods are supplied at the customer’s order especially from the Company’s own or supplier’s works, the Company shall require a non-refundable deposit from the customer and the Company shall only accept an order on the understanding that under no circumstances will such an order be cancelled by the customer. (iii) Orders are accepted on the understanding that the customer has satisfied himself of the suitability of the goods for his own purposes.

9 RETURN OF GOODS (i) No goods may be returned by a customer, nor liability be accepted by the Company for loss or damage of goods returned by the customer without the Company’s prior written consent. (ii) Goods returned for credit must be accompanied by an advice note quoting the number of the Company’s invoice against which the goods were originally supplied, and the reason for return. (iii) If items are returned for reason other than damage in transit, or if goods are wrongly supplied by the Company, the Company will make a re-stocking or handling charge to the customer.
