You agree compliance with MARPOL VI, Regulations 14 & 18 (except sulphur which shall be specified in the Request) and sampling guideline as set out in MEPC 96(47).
If Customer has provided his own terms and conditions that contradict with Supplier terms of sale, the Customer terms and conditions shall prevail.

Multiple Suppliers might submit their Offers to the Customer and there is no guarantee that any Offer will be accepted. If a Customer accepts the Offer and pays Reservation Fee to reserve it, Moorio will notify the Supplier by email and through Moorio Platform.
When submitting the Offer, a Supplier agrees to the Moorio terms of booking as outlined below:
Suppliers shall start processing of the booking only once the Reservation Fee is paid by Customer and the status of the Order becomes “In Progress”.
After customer has paid the Reservation Fee to Moorio, the respective Order becomes a legally binding agreement between the Supplier and the Customer. Given that, please thoroughly consider all related circumstances before submitting the Offer to the Customer and selecting appropriate Offer validity. Do bear in mind that after the validity expires, Customer has additional 2 minutes to finalize the payment of Reservation Fee. If for any reason you are unable to fulfill the Order, please contact Moorio immediately via Live Chat or email@example.com.
All payments, excluding the Reservation Fee, will be due directly to you as per payment terms. Invoice for the services to the Customer will be issued on behalf of the Supplier after the delivery through Moorio Platform.
When submitting offers, it is assumed that the transportation fee is included in the price of fuel, unless transportation fee is added additionally.
Should the Customer indicate that the goods and services requested are for internal use (meaning that vessel's final destination is the same as port of Order), you are responsible for adding VAT, excise duty tax and/or other taxes that might be applicable to the final Offer.
If the Supplier provides services of different quantity than was initially agreed upon, Supplier needs to adjust the quantity in the Order so that the invoice issued would be correct. For transparency reasons, the quantity should not differ more than 30% (thirty percent) from the initially agreed upon quantity.
Using Moorio, Suppliers are responsible and obliged to mark Order as delivered, update delivered quantity and upload stamped and signed bunker delivery note and fuel certificates as soon as possible after actual delivery, but no later than within 7 calendar days after ETD.
Transparency and high level of customer service are very important to Moorio. Moorio provides Suppliers with a platform to communicate with Customers and Agents regarding the Order both through direct communication via messenger, as well as live order management tool with all the Order milestones highlighted.
To ensure Customer satisfaction, Suppliers will promptly communicate Order milestones via API integration or manual updates on our Platform. To help you guide through the Order process cycle, Moorio will send reminders of next steps.
Suppliers are responsible for providing Order updates and communications to Customers on a regular basis to ensure a high standard of customer service. Supplier might choose to add Agent to the communication circle to ensure even smoother servicing of the vessel. All Supplier-Customer-Agent communications will be recorded on Moorio Messenger tool. This allows Moorio to keep track of every exchange between the three parties.
Moorio is a Platform that allows Customers and Suppliers to find each other and generate instant Offers that facilitate entering into business contracts. The contract for services or goods is always directly between the Supplier and the Customer. Moorio is not a party to that agreement in any capacity. Moorio is a facilitator of the exchange of services for vessels between Customers and Suppliers.

Fixed Enterprise subscription fee is due in advance when Supplier subscribes to the plan. Variable part is due after each successful order is closed.

If Supplier chooses to enable this tool by creating rules, offers will be posted automatically on behalf of Supplier, allowing Suppliers to respond to requests fast and not to miss any of them.
If newly created automated rule with same port and fuel type already exist, the newly created rule will replace it.
It is Supplier’s sole responsibility to check whether the rules work as intended and are set correctly. We recommend doing that on a daily basis. By setting the rules, Supplier confirms that if his automated Offer is selected, he will be bound to fulfill the Order.
If the Customer chooses to cancel the Order after it was already paid in full or in part to your bank account, you will be responsible for refunds as per your terms of sale. The Supplier shall ensure that its terms of sale or any other additional binding document provided to the Customer do not diminish or cancel this right of the Client, or any other rights established in Moorio policies. In case Customer has not paid for the Order before cancelling it, you are responsible for applying penalties as per your terms of sale.
