Egg Suppliers abusing delivery contracts.

26 February 2013, 11:01
A business needs a certain number of chicken eggs a day for the products that it produces. It goes into agreement with a large country wide egg supplier to have a fixed amount of eggs delivered each day at an agreed price. For the first couple of weeks, all the required eggs are delivered on time and in full and production is not interrupted, but then one day the business notices that the cartons that contain the eggs have a number of eggs per tray missing, which immediately affects the production.

When the business asks the egg supplier the reasons for the missing eggs, they are told that because there only a limited amount of eggs available country wide, restrictions on the number of eggs delivered had to be made, so that everyone could get some eggs. The business pointed out that this was not what was agreed to in the first place, to which the egg supplier made the statement that it was because the business was using too many eggs per day for their production of wedding cakes, that they had been selected as one of the businesses to have these restrictions placed on them.

When asked how much is too many eggs purchased, the egg supplier said that they were the ones who managed this on a daily basis, and could not give exact numbers of how many or when these types of restrictions would happen. The egg supplier then also mentioned, that once these restrictions where put in place during the month, they would last until the end of the month. This was done to make it fair for all egg purchasers across the country.

And adding further insult to injury, the egg supplier specifically stopped delivery of large brown eggs as they claimed these were what was most threatened by demands. And no reduction in price for egg delivery was allowed, the full agreed price would continue to be asked for the egg delivery service and be expected to be paid or the service would be completely stopped.

This is the way Internet Service Providers deal with their customers in this country.
