How We Work with You
Our process is designed to protect you, your staff and patients, and our network of suppliers. We are committed to helping you source critically needed supplies at fair prices for both you and suppliers. We connect you to reputable suppliers and manufacturers. We know it takes years to build a reputation and much less time to destroy it. We are here for the long-term, not just this month or this year.
That's why we follow professional, standard practices to connect you to our experienced trading partners and suppliers. Third-party inspection by SGS Inspection Teams are a standard part of this process. Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS) is the world's leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company with more than 94,000 employees and 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world--learn more at www.sgsgroup.us.com. Once you agree on the product specifications, quantities, prices, shipping method, and delivery schedule, and send a Letter of Intent, you will be sent Proof of Product. Once you send the P.O., the SGS Inspection is scheduled. The SGS Inspection Report is made available directly to you by SGS the next business day. You then provide the deposit so your order can be processed promptly. When the product is in the warehouse and ready to ship, you have the option to arrange for a second SGS Inspection for Quality and Quantity (Q & Q Report). SGS can further verify your order quantity and the quality of the product. Once you receive this report and the irrevocable Airway Bill, you then provide the balance of payment. Your shipment is typically sent CIF (Cost, Insurance, Freight), and either shipped via cargo ship, or next day delivery via chartered plane.
So in a nutshell, here's the typical process:
Schedule a call with us, and we will walk you through the process to successfully source the products you need
As the buyer, you send a Letter of Intent
Once you send the LoC, then you'll be sent Proof of Product, including the product catalog, product certificates, factory certificates, photos and videos of product stock
As the buyer, you issue a P.O., and then the SGS Inspection is scheduled and completed, and a Report is provided to you
As the buyer, you make a deposit via MT103/TT, which is a wire transfer format, against the SGS Report
As the buyer, you are issued an irrevocable Airway Bill, a non-negotiable transport document
As the buyer, you pay the remaining balance via MT103/TT against the Airway Bill
Shipment CIF is completed via air cargo or cargo ship, and you accept your shipment

ABOUT Minerva Medica
Minerva Medica LLC grew out of 20 years of leading turnarounds for 501(c)3 nonprofits and providing technical assistance for healthcare providers serving low-income and Medicaid patients.
In March 2020, Minerva Medica answered the call to bring critically needed supplies to frontline workers fighting the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Through long-time friendships, we found we could help essential workers get access to critical PPE and tests to keep themselves, their families, and patients safer.
Minerva Medica draws on its team's experience in building international relationships and responding to crises to address the needs of those most vulnerable.
