Marketing & Sales Statement

Marketing & Sales Statements

1. RZI Netherlands sends goods to its clients based on agreed price, which by standard is a price per KG and based in C&F at the Client’s port.

2. Payments are based on Cash against Scanned Documents. This means the client will receive an email from RZI Netherlands once the cargo has been loaded and has sailed. The client will receive all scanned shipping documents as attachments in that e-mail, including the invoice.

In order to receive the original shipping documents, clients are bound to fulfil the invoice within 5 business days from receiving the email. Once that invoice has been paid, RZI Netherlands’s team will send the original shipping documents per courier to the client for clearance in their port.

3.In the event where the client is not able to meet agreed payment terms then RZI Netherlands is free to sell said cargo/goods to others before free days are over as per terms of shipping lines i.e. 14 days from arrival of cargo at destination port.

4.In the event where the client is not able to meet and respect the agreed payment deadlines in a structural way, RZI Netherlands is free from all future liabilities of contracted FCLs as per contract.

5. Bank charges are always borne by the Client. The amount on the invoice has to be received in full in the RZI bank account.

6. In case RZI does not receive the full amount, the client will still be in debt and will need to fulfil their dues. RZI may charge interest rates for impartial and late payments as per the Dutch law and contemporary interest rates for late payments, which can be around 8% on the total amount due.
