Supporting global supply

We provide commodity producers with access to global markets, commercial expertise and connections to global customers. We also help stimulate new supply, including financing linked to purchasing agreements. Our responsible sourcing programme sets out our expectations for suppliers’ environmental and social standards to meet our customers’ requirements.

Shipping and transportation

We operate a modern fleet of vessels, that offer efficient and reliable movement of commodities across continents. This is complemented by a global logistics network including trucking, barges, rail and pipelines to get resources to where they are needed. We also offer our maritime and freight services to third-party clients.

We work with industry, policymakers and non-profit partners with the goal of decarbonising global shipping.

We believe that hydrogen-based fuels, such as methanol and ammonia, will be crucial in decarbonising road and sea freight.

Storage and blending

Through an extensive network of storage facilities, logistics assets and infrastructure, we are able to streamline the movement and storage of commodities, enabling safe, efficient and timely deliveries of natural resources to a wide range of industrial customers. These supplies are matched to precise customer specifications through blending and processing.

Adding value to supply chains

Our aim is to add value at every stage of the supply chain. We can help customers understand the carbon footprint of the commodities they purchase and support their efforts to measure and reduce their supply chain emissions.

Delivery and distribution

Delivering raw materials to the right place and with the right specification is a complex task. This final step in the supply chain process is overseen by our operations team who arrange everything from the loading, inspection and discharge of the physical commodities we source and supply from producers around the world.
