Commodity trading companies – Centralizing trade as a critical success factor 

The publication highlights the benefits of centralised commodity trading operations as many of the world’s biggest oil and gas and mining majors set up international trading structures to win competitive advantage. With an international commodity trading company, a corporate group can manage its global trading and marketing activities within one or a few specialised entities, unifying trading operations and consolidating sources of supply. This helps organisations better manage and meet customer demand while improving their profit margins at the same time.
