Portland cement type supplied buy IGR is based on the required performance of the concrete. In general, Portland cement is produced by heating sources of lime, iron, silica and alumina to clinkering temperature of up to 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit in a rotating kiln, then grinding the clinker to fine powder.
Approximately 30 – 35% of the cost of cement can be attributed to the cost of distribution, which begins at the gates of the cement facility. Movement of cement in bulk is less expensive than movement in small and jumbo bags, since the cost of bagging and debagging is eliminated. However, it is not always possible to move in bulk due to a variety of factors, ranging from geography to the culture of the country of manufacture and the country of use.
Ship movement of bulk cement is the lowest cost option in any scenario with a silo-to-silo flow process. IGR is also able to provide cement in bags – 50 kgs / 1 metric ton / 1.5 metric ton / 2 metric ton.
IGR has built solid foundations as a cement trader by nurturing relationships with its alliance partners – some of the largest and most reputable cement manufactures around the globe, giving IGR access to large cement manufacturing plants in key low cost producing regions, near bulk ports. Buyers benefit most from a cost perspective by taking cement supplies from IGR. We have created a strong network of supply from China, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Germany, France, Switzerland and Russia.
