Physical trading

Trafigura does everything possible to make trade work better. We source products from remote locations and can deliver on-time, on-spec shipments almost anywhere. We support producers, invest in terminals and transportation, and meet the most demanding delivery mandates.

investing in infrastructure

Trafigura invests worldwide in strategically located infrastructure to streamline commodity supply chains and make trading more efficient. If infrastructure is there already we invest to improve it. Where it doesn’t exist we build it ourselves.

A short introduction to Trafigura

Trafigura grows prosperity by advancing trade. We move physical commodities from where they are plentiful to where they are most needed – reliably, efficiently and responsibly.

We have built a world-class international business by stressing service and performance. Trafigura trades commodities in volume and across the world. With offices in 36 countries on six continents our network extends to every corner of the globe. We have developed industrial assets and strategic infrastructure to support our trading activities. Each of our offices has access to the knowledge, resources and support of the Trafigura Group.

We have been connecting customers to the global economy for more than two decades. For oil and petroleum products we work with electric utilities, refiners, majors and National Oil Companies. Metal and minerals customers range from mining companies to smelters, refined metals retailers and industrial manufacturers.

And we have a long-term perspective. We act as partner to nations, corporations and communities. We aim to create sustained shared value while earning the trust of those around us.
