Syrah Global DMCC, our UAE-based sales & marketing entity, is responsible for:
Customer relationship management and sales contracting.
Sales and operational planning (S&OP) linking production to market delivery.
Land and ocean transport and logistics management.
Short-term market analysis and reporting.
Technical marketing and value-in-use (VIU).
The Syrah Global DMCC team has extensive natural graphite (coarse and fines) and active anode material market development, commercial, and technical marketing experience. This team also manages a sales liaison in China. Syrah’s sales and marketing capability in industrial and battery anode markets has developed in line with customer qualification and product development requirements. We are focussed on developing mutually beneficial long-term commercial relationships.
Balama natural graphite products are exported through Nacala and Pemba ports in Mozambique.
At Nacala, Syrah has exclusive access to a state-of-the-art Cross Dock Facility, enabling short lead times from warehouse to ship, and good access to major container shipping lines, which provide ex-Nacala services to global destinations in Asia, India, Europe, and the USA.
Syrah has also developed a major logistics and export option in breakbulk shipments through Pemba port. Breakbulk shipments from Pemba create an additional export route for Balama products, provide flexibility in managing inventory positions and allow for additional product sales than otherwise could be achieved solely through Nacala port. This export route also allows for greater vessel charter options through a network of reliable owners with suitable vessels to cater for our customer requirements.
We maintain close relationships with our logistics partners to ensure a sustainable supply chain for our customers and to collaborate to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with product delivery.
North American and European battery manufacturers and auto OEMs are increasingly seeking geographical diversification of raw material supply to improve resilience of the supply chain. China currently produces the vast majority of active anode material products globally, followed by Japan and South Korea.
Balama Natural Graphite
