If a contract states one company will supply another company with a certain product for a specified amount of time, is it a fixed cost also?

That cost will be the same price for a certain period.

Depends some contracts are priced as fixed, others in layers and others are priced relative a raw material, typically those made with precious metals. Your question only talks to delivery during specific time, nothing is said about cost or minimum/maximum purchase by your firm. Thus the answer is complicated.

When reading an article it states how all costs in the long run are variable, but in the short run, it's definitely conceivable. a janitorial service contract would probably be a good example. Regardless of the company's input or output, they still require the same cleaning services. I can't think of an example for consumable resources though because most contracts for resources are based on consumption. Can you think of one?
