This section provides some helpful step-by-step guidelines for suppliers getting started with us.

Steencore Code establishes non-negotiable minimum standards that we ask our suppliers, their employees and agents to respect and adhere to at all times when conducting business. The Steencore Code is an integral part of all purchase orders, and supply contracts and is being integrated into all our commercial agreements. The Steencore Code is implemented in each market and business and applies to all suppliers.

We represent a global marketplace for reputable Seller's/Supplier's mandate's who can reliably and consistently supply high-quality commodities on request. We have a global, cross-functional team of dedicated trade professionals with experience in marketing, regulation, structuring, risk management, and compliance. We understand that every transaction has its own set of unique characteristics, therefore we are flexible in how we transact each trade.

Responsible sourcing 

Steencore works with several suppliers whom all operate to the highest standards and per internationally accepted protocols. Steencore only sells its products to a select group of traders and screens all its buyers extensively and stringently before offering or accepting orders. This is done to ensure our resources are directed only at genuine and Qualified Buyers as well as to protect the interests of our suppliers, bankers, investors and advisors from incapable buyers or fraudulent transactions.

We use only the safest procedures to make our trade negotiations successful and profitable, For our trade rules we always apply UCP 600 Banking Rules, Incoterms 2010 Delivery rules, URC 522 Collection Rules and URPIB Intermediary protocol.
