Lead Time: Lead time is calculated based on date of order receipt versus the number of full lead time days indicated in Ports and Services Guide. Lead time does not include public or local holidays or weekends. The first working day will be calculated as the first working day after order receipt in the port of delivery. Certain products or delivery mechanisms may be subject to different lead times* within the same port.

Short Notice: A Short Notice Order is any order which fails to adhere to the port’s listed Lead Time stated upon ExxonMobil’s Port and Services Guide. Customers wishing to place an order contrary to published Lead Time should contact their customer service representative to discuss delivery possibilities.

Minimum Volume per Grade – Bulk: The minimum volume to be ordered / delivered for each bulk product in the requested delivery port. Certain products or delivery mechanisms may be subject to different Minimum Quantities* within the same port. It is generally not possible to deliver less than the Minimum Volume per Grade. Customers wishing to place an order contrary to published Minimum Order Quantity should contact their customer service representative to discuss delivery possibilities.

Minimum Volume Aggregate – Bulk: The minimum total aggregated bulk volume that can be supplied at the requested delivery port. For any request for an aggregated bulk order volume below this threshold, ExxonMobil will still attempt delivery upon a best endeavour basis however the delivery may be subject to a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) bulk fee.

Minimum Volume - Package: The minimum total aggregated volume of packaged products (including synthetics) that can be supplied at the requested delivery port. Any aggregated packaged product order volume below this volume threshold may be subject to a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) pack fee, except if there is an aggregated volume of synthetic products ordered above the volume threshold for ‘Minimum Volume – Synthetics’.

Minimum Volume - Synthetics: The minimum total aggregated volume of synthetic products that can be supplied at the requested delivery port.

Pumping from Drums: Refers to a single grade MobilGard product to be pumped at its stated minimum number of drums where applicable. If any other product is required for pumping, technical compatibility verification and feasibility is required on a case-by-case basis.

Non-Listed products or Ports: For non-listed port or product requirements, please contact your CS Agent.

Order Confirmation: Our CS Agents will supply you with confirmation of order receipt within 24 hours. CS Agents endeavor to supply you with confirmation that delivery is scheduled via an Order Confirmation as early as possible prior to delivery. Delivery arrangements are scheduled and carried out as per agent’s latest advice on vessel’s ETA/ETD.
Any changes made after order is confirmed for delivery will be subject to a new confirmation. In case vessel's ETA has not been confirmed, the lead time shall be calculated only from the date of confirmation of ETA.

Services and Extra Charges: Services and their related charges vary between ports, the most common of which (barging) can be checked by reviewing individual Port Details within the Ports and Services Guide. Further charges are subject to enquiry. We endeavor to advise all charges up-front prior to delivery.
