Changes in the product and service assortment
KP Energy continuously evaluates products, services and suppliers in order to constantly offer the buyer an attractive assortment of goods and services. Changes in the assortment are therefore ongoing and the current assortment is always shown in KP Energy's customer portal and on KP Energy's website.
KP Energy adjusts prices on an ongoing basis. The increase will be notified to customers with contracts at least 30 days before the increase comes into effect. Reductions can be made immediately.
KP Energy reserves the right, in extreme cases, to adjust prices immediately in case of events beyond KP Energy's control that significantly affect KP Energy's purchase prices. Such an event could be a change in exchange rates, a change in tax or duty, or a shortage of products on the market. In this case, the notification is replaced by a message published on KP Energy's customer portal.
An order is primarily completed by the Buyer by registering the order in KP Energy's customer portal. Ordering can also be done by contacting KP Energy's customer service by email or phone. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the person placing the order is authorized. The order is binding for both parties once KP Energy has confirmed it. Orders can be placed for delivery up to nine months in the future. If KP Energy confirms the order with a discharge date other than the one requested by the buyer, the buyer may contact KP Energy within two working days and change or cancel the order free of charge. If the buyer does not do this, the order is binding.
Deliveries take place at the delivery times and on the delivery terms stated in the order recognition or otherwise in the Agreement. Unless otherwise stated, the General Delivery Provisions NL09 apply to the material deliveries made by KP Energy. For such deliveries, delivery terms apply Ex Works and with a reasonable delivery time, taking into account the manufacturer's delivery times (including any delays thereof) and the other delays or obstacles that may arise. KP Energy is always entitled to charge freight costs for deliveries made by KP Energy.
Delivery is on a working day unless otherwise agreed in the specific case.
Delivery is made according to EXW delivery terms (Incoterms 2020). Packaging costs will be added unless a shipping service is purchased from KP Energy. Collection takes place according to the collection procedure.
Upon collection, the buyer or the buyer's agent must check the products according to the Receiving Control procedure. If collection has not taken place after five working days, the order will be cancelled. The buyer is then obliged to compensate KP Energy for the additional costs incurred by KP Energy, but at least 500 SEK per commenced day.
KP Energy accepts the end customer as the buyer's representative provided that the buyer has communicated the end customer's name to KP Energy.
KP Energy will invoice the credit-approved buyer when the products are delivered or, if delivery cannot be made due to circumstances for which the buyer is responsible, when the products are returned to the carrier's or KP Energy's premises. For services, invoicing takes place after delivery unless otherwise stated in the terms and conditions of the specific service.
For buyers who are not credit approved, advance payment must instead be made before delivery, according to the Advance Payment procedure, or alternatively that sufficient security is provided for the delivery.
The price on the day of the order applies. Any promotional or offer price is valid before the list price.
Prices for products refer to delivery within three months. Subsequent deliveries are subject to a fixed price surcharge as set out in the service price list.
Unless otherwise agreed, payment shall be made no later than 20 days after the date of the invoice. In case of non-payment, late payment interest is charged from the first day after the due date at the reference rate + 8 percentage points.
A shorter payment period applies to advance invoices. Failure to pay an advance invoice by the day after the due date means that the buyer has canceled the order.
Amendment by the Buyer
A change of order can be made up to three days before the day of loading according to the Change of order procedure. Early delivery is possible if the product is available for delivery on the requested date. Postponement of delivery results in a fixed price surcharge if it would have been incurred if the order had originally been delivered on the new loading date.
If the order is extended, the additional order is treated as a new order. If the order is reduced, the reduction is treated as a cancellation.
A change later than three days before the day of loading may in some cases be possible, and will in that case be subject to a change fee of 1000 SEK in addition to the fee for an earlier change.
Amendment by KP Energy
If KP Energy delays the delivery date for the main part of the order by more than four weeks, the buyer has the right to cancel the stock items on the order free of charge within two working days of being informed of the change. The majority of the order means more than 50% of the order value.
If individual products cannot be delivered on the confirmed loading date, KP Energy shall, if possible, replace these products with equivalent products, preferably at the same price level (+-5%) as the ordered products, at the price of the replacement products. The buyer shall accept the replacement products. If the buyer does not accept the replacement products, the buyer has the right to cancel the stock items on the order free of charge. Such cancellation shall be made within two working days of the buyer being informed of the replacement products. If KP Energy is unable to offer the product(s) approved by the buyer and the buyer does not agree to postpone delivery of the product(s), KP Energy is entitled to cancel all or part of the order without compensation to the buyer.
Cancellation is done according to the Cancellation procedure. In case of cancellation, KP Energy charges the buyer a fee corresponding to 100% of the order value of the order goods. If cancellation is made later than ten working days but earlier than three days before the day of loading, KP Energy also charges a fee of 10% of the order value for stock items.
In the event of cancellation later than three days before the date of loading, the fee is 100% of the order value for order goods, 20% of the order value for stock goods, as well as compensation for the additional costs incurred by KP Energy for packaging, cancellation of the freight order, etc.
If the cancellation relates to fixed price orders, KP Energy will instead charge a fee of 30% of the order value for stock items and 100% of the order value for order items even if the cancellation is made earlier than ten working days before the day of loading.
