1. Vietnam Client for Calcium Metal
We met the Vietnam client on Alibaba. He was looking for 10 tons of calcium metal. This customer can’t speak English, so the sales manager communicated with the customer in English. The sales manager sent the official quotation, SGS test report, company profile, and BL (without the customer’s information). A Chinese friend of a Vietnamese customer listened to an unprofessional supplier’s introduction and believed that metallic calcium could be transported in ton bags, and the product name could be changed and transported by land.
Our professional opinion is that metallic calcium products can only be packed in iron drums filled with argon. Calcium metal products cannot be combined with other products during transportation. A dangerous package certificate is required when transporting metallic calcium.
Vietnamese customers rejected the products and transportation solutions we provided out of trust in their Chinese friends.
More than 3 months later, customers reported that the product was not right. Customers are now recommended to contact their Chinese friends and their calcium metal suppliers to coordinate follow-up issues.
2. South Korea Client for Calcium Metal
The customer is using it for experiments, Ca 98.5%, particle size: 0-0.3mm. The key question is that the customer wants 1 ton of metallic calcium powder. Metal calcium powder is a dangerous good, and a small cabinet can only be customized by the relevant regulations on dangerous goods. Finally, the customer contacts other suppliers to change the product name, and the goods are consolidated and transported to the destination.
The customer finally succeeded in purchasing metallic calcium products through illegal means, but he took great risks during the trade process. It is not advisable to take chances.
