In such case Front Trading will assess and decide what’s the best course of action. It might be that we ship the products that are available and send the rest as soon as they arrive in our warehouse, or we might hold off on delivery until we have your complete order in stock. We might ask for the dealer’s preference in certain cases, however we reserve the right to the final decision.
  5. Front Trading does it’s best to deliver on time. However, delivery terms are subjective to many outside factors and are therefore without obligation.

Of course, we will inform dealer as soon as possible if delivery terms cannot be met.
  6. Front Trading works with trusted shipping partners. We provide dealer with bespoke shipping and delivery options and prices.

  • If dealer fails to fulfil or partly fulfil obligations set in any agreement.
  • If we believe dealer can’t fulfil their obligations after we closed any agreement.

  5. We certainly do not hope so, but it could be that you experience rough financial weather, this includes liquidation, (application for) a moratorium, bankruptcy or other circumstances which prevent you to freely dispose over your capital.

We expect you to pay on time and in the currency mentioned on the invoice. Front Trading can change or revoke the term of payment for invoices at any time for future orders.
  3. If dealer doesn’t pay on time, Front Trading considers this as a payment default. In such case dealer owes Front Trading 8% interest per year on the outstanding amount.

  8. If Front Trading and dealer agree that if a product has a defect and dealer reported this on time, then Front Trading will replace, repair, or compensate the product as soon as possible, after the product is returned to Front Trading.
