Procurement Case Study – FertiliserProcurement

Following a referral to help import mixing machinery for a new client, Qube Procurement was also asked to look at a cost effective way of sourcing raw materials for a new liquid fertiliser plant.


The client was a new fertiliser company that wished to vertically integrate the supply and distribution for all raw material and packaging of this product. The issue the client faced was lack of reliable quality control, access to raw products or a supply chain of their own. The product was also very unique, so confidentiality was also a concern.


QUBE Procurement worked closely with the client and formed a strategic alliance to source, conduct QC, ship, unpack, store and distribute not only the raw products but the finished goods as well. All supply chain is now under one banner and all control is in-house to satisfy the confidentiality aspect.
