PT VALE INCO in Indonesia needed help to prepare tender documentation and create a contract document. They also required support through the tender management process.

The tender was for the yearly transportation of 5,000 TEUs and 10,000 Tons of bulk sea freight, 2,000 Tons of air freight, and 30,000 CBM of trucking for the sustenance of both the mining activities and the 5,000 person city built around the mine in the middle of the jungle.

Our advisor flew to the site to collect the necessary data to prepare the RFQ. We accompanied the client during the entire tender process and delivered a state-of-the-art contract document that the chosen subcontractors signed.


SCMO was requested to help RIO TINTO for the tender management process of delivery transports, from the various sites in Europe.

With 36,000 people, RIO TINTO is the world leader in the mining industry, specialized in metals & minerals. Its activities span the world but are strongly represented in Australia and North America. There are also significant businesses in South America, Asia, Europe and southern Africa.

It was the time when newly bought companies were included in the tender process. Beyond the technical issue, it was necessary to keep and respect every company’s specificities (3 companies and 12 industrial sites in 6 countries in Europe). Business volumes are 662,000 tons, 33,450 shipments and EUR 29 million expenses per year.

The tender resulted in reduction of suppliers (176 to 70), and 6% reduction on costs. That is a saving of EUR 1.7 million. The tender simulations were processed through SCMO tender management software solution.
