Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) at MTZ: Why One Ton (1 ton) Matters

At MTZ, we take great pride in our wire nails, delivering products of the highest quality to meet our customers’ needs. As a leading fastener manufacturer, we have established a minimum order quantity (MOQ) of one ton (1 ton) for each size of wire nails. This decision is influenced by various factors, including production costs, packaging, shipping, and more. In this article, we will explore the reasons behind our MOQ policy and explain how it benefits both MTZ and our valued customers.

Cost Considerations:

One of the primary reasons for setting a one-ton MOQ is to optimize production costs. Machine production, which involves the use of molds and tooling, incurs certain fixed costs that remain relatively constant regardless of the order size. By standardizing the MOQ at one ton, we can distribute these fixed costs more efficiently, resulting in cost-effectiveness for both MTZ and our customers.

Packaging and Shipping Efficiency:

Efficient packaging and shipping are essential to ensure the timely and cost-effective delivery of our wire nails. Larger quantities packed together in one-ton increments allow for optimal utilization of packaging materials and reduce waste. Furthermore, consolidating shipments for larger orders enables us to negotiate better shipping rates, passing on cost savings to our customers.

Ocean freight costs are typically calculated based on shipment volume. Larger shipments, such as one-ton orders, benefit from more competitive rates per unit weight. Encouraging larger orders through the one-ton MOQ allows us to obtain better ocean freight rates, which directly contributes to cost savings for our customers.

Assurance for First-Time Customers:

For first-time customers who may be unfamiliar with the quality of MTZ’s wire nails, the one-ton MOQ offers an opportunity to sample our products before committing to larger orders. By ordering one ton initially, customers can evaluate the quality, performance, and compatibility of our wire nails with their specific applications, building trust in our products and services.

wire nailExceptions for Commonly Used Products:

While the standard MOQ is one ton, we understand that certain products and sizes may be commonly used and in high demand. In such cases, if we have existing stock in our factory, we may be able to accommodate smaller order quantities, providing more flexibility to our customers.


MTZ’s one-ton MOQ policy for wire nails is a well-considered decision aimed at optimizing production costs, promoting cost-effective packaging and shipping, and offering quantity-based pricing advantages to our customers. By encouraging larger orders, we can pass on cost savings to our valued clients while ensuring that each wire nail meets our rigorous quality standards. Additionally, the one-ton MOQ allows first-time customers to evaluate our products before making larger commitments, fostering trust and confidence in the quality of MTZ’s wire nails. As a reputable fastener manufacturer, we are committed to providing top-notch products and services, instilling confidence in our customers and solidifying our position as a trusted and reliable partner in the fastener industry.
