MARKETING & DISTRIBUTION

Vinmar International markets products from the world's leading petrochemical producers and facilitates their participation in the global marketplace. Vinmar works to understand our petrochemical suppliers' objectives and develops specific marketing plans accordingly. Our global reach through local presence ensures appropriate market stewardship.  

LOGISTICS

Vinmar International transports petrochemical products safely, efficiently and cost-effectively with custom logistics solutions executed on a global scale. Vinmar is one of the largest shippers of containerized cargo in the Port of Houston.

FINANCING

Vinmar's strong financial history and decades of experience lets us manage country, credit and currency risks and in turn offer attractive financial terms both to petrochemical producers and users.

Success Stories

Focus on Efficiency

By the late 90s, Vinmar had been aggregating smaller liquid chemical parcels into larger vessels for some time. Such methods allowed our chartered vessels to load cargo and discharge at a number of ports along a given route, resulting in significant cost savings and transit time optimization.

Excellence in Logistics

Relationships with global container lines are a central pillar of our business. Vinmar is one of the top ten exporters of shipping containers in the Port of Houston, which is itself the second busiest port in the United States. We also pride ourselves on operational creativity. For example, we pioneered overland trucking to a key market, reducing shipment time from 45 days to ten or less.

Vinmar creates value

Vinmar creates value through cost savings whenever possible. By leveraging our relationship with shippers, and arranging the freight and logistics on behalf of one supplier of chemicals, we reduced total shipment costs by almost 25% on product moving from Ohio to China.

Applying Market Knowledge

Vinmar tries to apply our market knowledge in all aspects of our business. Vinmar is a leading supplier of a key value-added product from a major petrochemical producer. These products are high quality and provide excellent properties to the finished goods. Through Vinmar's knowledge of the plastics market, and our in house technical experts, we created an entirely new application for one of these polymers and are steadily expanding our sales in this segment.

Reducing Waste

Waste reduction is not only good for the environment, but good for a business's bottom line. Vinmar assisted converters with the marketing of reprocessed pellets from their manufacturing waste, creating substantial value.
