Russian steel maker NLMK Group has launched an online platform for the sale of slabs - NLMK Slab Shop. The service, unique for the global metallurgical market, will allow customers to purchase slabs in small volumes from 60 tonnes. NLMK Slab Shop is an aggregator of orders for small quantities, from 60 to 2,400 tonnes. Orders with the same parameters are combined into a single lot for placement in NLMK production. Each client of the service can form an application for any assortment of the required volume or join an already created request. The new service of NLMK Group will allow our customers to purchase steel for further processing quickly and conveniently: no prepayment is required to complete an application, the transaction is negotiated promptly.
Manufacturers of flat products often need small volumes of semi-finished steel products from special steel grades. It is difficult to meet these needs in the product market due to technical restrictions on the minimum serial production, so rolled products manufacturers are forced to use less efficient solutions: produce on their own or place orders for excess volumes.
