Working method

Inter Ocean Services divides its working practices as follows:

  1. Procurement Assistance
  2. Contract Purchasing
  3. Export assistance

How it works

1- Procurement Assistance  - Where IOS receives a request from a Brazilian company to provide a quotation for new equipment or spare parts that are available outside Brazil.
Such a quotation includes price, availability and payment terms
- IOS, from their very considerable experience are able to source suitable material and
present a quotation to the client including details of commercial and import conditions.
- Once the quotation has been approved by the client, the material is ordered and an
acceptable delivery schedule produced. IOS monitor the delivery and ensure suitable
progress is maintained.
- Once the goods are ready for shipment, the client is advised and the mode of despatch is

  1. Should client arrange shipment, IOS will provide any such assistance as may be required
  2. The most likely event is that IOS are requested to arrange shipment. IOS will then prepare the entire necessary documentation essential to ensure the smooth import of the goods into Brazil . Thus relieving the client of all worry and responsibility concerned with importation.

2-Contract purchasing – This involves individual projects where a “contract for assistance” is agreed. This could be for one or multiple projects. It can include follow up on behalf of clients, inspection or witness testing on existing orders. This facility could be simply to coordinate the forwarding to Brazil of goods where control at a distance can prove difficult to manage.

3- Export Assistance – From the very considerable experience within the IOS operation a company (client) with limited experience of exporting to Brazil can take advantage of such expertise. This can extensively increase the possibilities to secure business which may otherwise be lost through lack of required knowledge.
