OSECHEM uses quality drums. We encourage our customers to combine orders to take advantage of lower drum differentials for products shipped from the same location.
We can fill standard full 20 ft. or 40 ft. containers except where prohibited due to weight restrictions.
OSECHEM offers competitive lead times for our products. These lead times are generally applicable and reflect the time necessary to process and prepare a customer’s order in a safe and cost-effective manner. The lead times below are expressed in business calendar days. This is the typical time required from order receipt to order shipment.
Lube Additives (Calendar Days)
Bulk, Made-to-order 10 - 14 Days
Package, Made-to-order 10 - 14 Days
These standard lead times are for the majority of our fuel and lubricant additives and are based upon standard railcar and truck loading requirements. Your OSECHEM CSR (Customer Service Representative) will be glad to provide you with specific lead times for the products you purchase.

Order Entry & Acknowledgement
IPAC is committed to entering all orders received during normal business hours (7:30 AM to 5:00 PM), within 24 hours of receipt. Our lead times are calculated from the time an order is entered into our system. An acknowledgement of your order will follow within 24-48 hours of order entry, delivered via fax or e-mail depending on your preference. OSECHEM continues to streamline the supply chain so that the majority of orders placed by telephone can be confirmed at that time, without having to reschedule production or loading.
Quality and Safety
OSECHEM’s Safety and Environmental Policy mandates that all of our products can be manufactured and used safely. This means that OSECHEM will not only comply with the relevant legal requirements but also continue to improve all matters of health, safety and environmental protection. In particular, OSECHEM will provide information to our customers to ensure the transportation, storage, and use of our products is done in a safe and responsible manner.
No Waiver Policy
OSECHEM operates on a no waiver policy on supply of all products. We will not ship products that do not meet mutually agreed upon specifications, analyzed by mutually agreed upon test methods. A certificate of analysis (C of A) containing the actual analysis for each lot or batch is provided with every shipment.
Quick Turn Around Orders (QTA’s)
If you have a need for a Quick Turn Around Order (QTA), we will do everything in our power to get the order out as soon as possible without delaying other customer’s shipments. Please note that there could be extra fees associated in producing that order quickly. These fees will be explained to you up front prior to processing the order.

OSECHEM offers split loads for a fee of $250.00 per truckload. Please note that split loads are also subject to the freight difference of that of single compartment loads. These are not our fees but the truck carrier fees.
