Our markets

Advancing trade

Responsible trade drives economic progress and builds stronger societies.

Trafigura is dedicated to advancing trade. We have been connecting our customers to the global economy for more than two decades. We take a long-term perspective. We use our energy and resources to make trade work better. We act as partner to nations, corporations and communities. We earn their trust and build sustained shared value.

Physical Trading

Trafigura adds value by trading physical commodities reliably, efficiently and responsibly. We source products from remote locations. We deliver on-time, on-spec shipments almost anywhere. We support producers, invest in terminals and transportation, and meet the most demanding mandates.

Investing in infrastructure

Trafigura invests worldwide in strategically located infrastructure. We invest in ports, terminals and logistics that enhance our physical trading activities. We build warehouses and storage facilities, operate truck and barge fleets, buy ships and develop mines – whatever it takes to help trade flow.

Trading responsibly

Trafigura’s activities are technically complex and geographically dispersed. We source, store, blend and deliver combustible and hard-to-handle materials across the globe. We own and manage storage facilities, vessels, warehouses and mines. The management of health, safety, environmental and community (HSEC) concerns are central to our planning and decision-making.

Our global network

With offices in 38 countries on six continents Trafigura spans the globe. Our global network supports our trading activities and helps us connect producers and consumers worldwide. Every one of our offices has access to the knowledge, resources and support of the entire Trafigura Group.
