By leveraging the network that we have constructed through contracts with suppliers and partners, not only are we able to undertake sales for a wide variety of consumers, we are also able to ensure transactions benefit suppliers, Sojitz JECT and consumers through the absolute maximization of first pass yield and the stable, low cost supply of commercial products by buying up all raw materials produced.
Processing sales scheme
In order to fulfill the wishes of end-users, we work with a range of domestic and international processors to meet a wide range of demands that include graphitizing and special finishes.
Risk management functions built up over many years as a trading company
We use a wide variety of payment methods (including LC/TT, advance payment, various bills, factoring, and forfeiting) in cooperation with financial institutions around the world and implement the kind of risk management methods unique to trading companies in order to diversify and guard against various risks in transactions while maximizing convenience for our customers.
Supply chain management
Through our long experience on the supply chain management in the carbon industry, we have established a characteristic and collaborating business scheme with our clients all over the world. In this scheme, we, Sojitz JECT, procure the raw materials from China and deliver it to Japan, then, we supply the products of the Japanese client to an Indian client, and ultimately we sell the finished products of the Indian client to Russian clients by utilizing the temporary storing function in the EU. By managing the whole process as the principal(or the organizer), we become able to archive the traceability of the products and to bring economic benefits to all the concerned parties. The aforesaid scheme is just an example of many cases, and we will keep bringing more benefits to our strategic partners by utilizing our experience and knowledge.
