Our strategy is to fulfil our vision to become one of the leading mid-tier forestry-by products wholesale traders in North America and EMEA, operating in the space between the intermediate-products and the finished-products side of the value chain.
The strategy is comprised of following key components:
- Scope of products is first and foremost physical in paper, paper board, adhesive labels, laminates, foils, holographic, packaging grade plastics, jumbo tissue rolls, timber / lumber and specialty chemicals. We occasionally and opportunistically trade refined petroleum products.
- The Quantities we trade and distribute are Wholesale
- We do not speculate on price movements
- Customer segment focus: mid-tier convertors and manufacturers, large retailers and locally-focused merchants and distributors.
- We do not introduce buyers and sellers and earn brokerage commissions - we only take title ownership of the cargoes and re-sell the same to our customers.
- Our competitive advantage in the geographic areas we cover lies primarily in the continuous improvement in our key value drivers: our ability to identify and react to market inefficiencies through the breadth and depth of the market intelligence we analyse, the strong relationships we possess, our access to capital and credit facilities and our marketing resources.
