How does toll processing work? What is tolling in manufacturing?
Toll processing, also known as toll manufacturing or tolling, is a service where a company with specialized equipment processes raw materials or semi-finished goods for another company. It’s akin to outsourcing a specific production step to a third-party service provider. The primary company retains ownership of the materials throughout the process, and the toll processor provides the necessary services to convert or process those materials.
Here’s a breakdown of how toll processing typically works:
- Toll Processing Agreement: The company (often referred to as the “principal”) seeking toll processing services and the toll processor will enter into an agreement. This agreement typically spells out the terms and conditions of the service, including processing specifications, quality standards, timelines, and payment terms.
- Delivery: The principal provides the raw materials or semi-finished goods to the toll processor.
- Processing: The toll processor then processes these materials according to the specifications provided by the principal. This could include grinding, milling, mixing, blending, sifting, drying, and other manufacturing or refining processes.
- Quality Control: The tolling agreement often specifies certain quality control measures or checks that the toll processor must adhere to. This ensures the final product meets the principal’s standards.
- Return of Finished Goods: After processing, the finished or further-processed goods are either returned to the principal or, according to prior instructions, shipped directly to the principal’s customers.
- Payment: The toll processor is paid based on the services rendered. The pricing structure can vary. It might be based on a per-unit basis, the volume of material processed, or a flat fee, among other models.
