The Singapore Way

I went back to Singapore recently and I was glad that I saw the amazing infrastructure again. Singapore is trully the hub for commodity trading and the cheapest place to establish a business, as per reported by World Bank.  Below are my actual photos

Low Cost Commodity Trade Investment

I am facilitating export deal since 2006 after I learned commodity trading in Singapore through a Singaporean mentor. Since then, I was able to facilitate shipments of Cavendish Banana, Pineapple, Rice and other products for export mostly in Middle East countries.  I am also utilized in  feasibility/business plan making and other consultancy.

I guess my main capital are my sincerity and extra-mile service offer to my inquiring clients mostly from Middle East, Europe and Africa.  Of course my more than 10 years experience in the corporate sector and earlier background in Advertising is an edge as well.   As I am known  already by many buyers/importer,  my existing client is ordering asap for 1 – 20ft container load of  Philippine products (consolidated).   I was glad because my client order not only because of price but because they trust me.  Proof of past deal is available upon request.   I am excited because my client also orders Cavendish Banana and Pineapple in40ft container per fruit

– 13.5kg packing for banana with 1,520 boxes per container

– 12kg packing for pineapple with 1,560 per container

With my affiliation to direct manufacturers and farm-growers, I was able to quote lower price.   I can earn more but I need immediate financial assistance from an Investor or joint venture partner to finance the shipments and for my minimal operational expense requirement.    Pls refer to below link for the product offer website I am now doing (still in progress but an be viewed already)…

Added to my service is a personalized monitor website where my clients can check on their orders and shipments schedules in the convenience of their own internet cellphone or laptop or PC wherever they are or whenever they want to check.  They could even check in even on a car or on plane.  Pls click to link below for sample site I intend…

This business is very lucrative with less capitalization requirement and controlled risk.   Rest assured that I will earn already earn after the first shipment.  But I need at least 3-5 shipments or after the repeat order to pay back my joint venture partner or investor his/her return on investment.  I am willing whatever it take or sign a contract but below amount to start right away…

US$1000 = first shipment 20ft container to Dubai (Philippine grocery products) plus registration and banking requirement for opening a corporate account), with potential order of Cavendish Banana and Pineapple.

**As I will ask for at least 50% down payment to buyer-importer (full payment against valuable/shipping documents), I am willing to accept less in the meantime.  Nevertheless, it will better if I get more as I need to pay the supplier and customs broker in advance to get the container and speed up the shipment with reliability and minimal risk.

I am willing to provide Business Plan if investor/joint venture will require.  Nevertheless, better if I will be given advance amount to immediately ship the needed 1-20ft container destination Dubai.  I can be contact directly at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com

CRITICAL AREAS in LOSS PREVENTION (Cavendish Banana Import-Export)

I am into facilitating Cavendish Banana Import-Export from since 2007.     Since then, I experienced a lot.  Every customer and shipments made are a learning process.   Yes this business is very lucrative but unless you are familiar with the system and risks involve, you will surely end up in a mess of loss of time and money.

To resolve the issues, I formulated my own report based on years of experience, rigid research and consultation.  Below is the result and I titled it as, “Cavendish Banana Import-Export CRITICAL AREAS in LOSS PREVENTION.”   You may want to view it for your reference if you are into this business.  Otherwise, you may just end up in losses and waste of time (especially if you are not that experienced).  My report also includes actual damage report experienced by my client from his former supplier.

To have a bird’s eye view of my report, below is the actual Table of Contents…

  • Low Price Trap in Cavendish Banana Import-Export
  • Basic Checklist
  • Quality / Duration of Storage
  • Packaging
  • Transport
  • RF Temperature

  • Shrinkage / Shortage
  • Insect Infestation / Diseases
Although this field is basically sales in nature, finding the lowest price is not enough.  The importer must find first the genuine farm owner-exporter or grower with set standards on harvest, packing operations, loading, shipping and customer relations.  There are lots one can find in the internet but in reality, the genuine are hard to find as most in the internet are mere trading firms or middle men companies.  To find the genuine, first, an importer must cooperate with someone who knows where the genuine farm owner/grower are, and willing to lead you directly to them.  Second, the importer needs his contact to monitor the operations until bananas are shipped and reached the port of destination in good shape and expected freshness.  That is  Risk Management or Loss Prevention.  An importer cannot just rely the matters in the hands of the supplier, especially if the destination is as far as Middle East, Europe and Russia.  It has to be delegated to trusted experienced someone, or face the consequences caused by lack of understanding and monitoring team.
Another thing.
Right Container provider, right set temperature and ventilation is also very important.   At the same time, below suggestion is very crucial:
1. Pre-survey of the plantation is a must

2. Hire Quality Inspector/s to check harvests (live-Cut!)

3. To hire Quality Inspector to supervise packing line at the weighing and selection point

4. Clear and specific purchase and cutting order to the growers/farmers

5. Someone to random check on delivery before loading into the container

6. Securing of the cut-off time to secure maximum 12 hours between cut and cooling.  At the same time, counter check set temperature and ventilation.

7. Inspection of the fruit thru the Bureau of Plant Industry (Department of Agriculture and SGS).

8. Others as the need arises.

More details are clarified with recommendations on issues at my report.
