Trafigura is an independent, employee-owned physical trading and logistics business.
Throughout our 28-year history, we’ve prospered by questioning the status quo. In the early years, we were one of a few trading firms challenging the traditional dominance of the big institutions. We developed new markets and helped to redefine the way commodities were traded.
Today, our activities put us at the heart of the global economy. We forge robust connections through our global network, efficient logistics and unparalleled market understanding. Our end-to-end services connect producers, processors and consumers worldwide. We invest hundreds of millions of dollars in infrastructure.
We’re among the market leaders in energy, metals and minerals. With 88 offices in 48 countries, we have global reach and scale.
Trafigura makes trade happen. And we make it our mission to do that responsibly. We deploy infrastructure, skills and our global network to move physical commodities from places they are plentiful to where they are most needed.
We have been connecting our customers to the global economy for a quarter of a century. We grow prosperity by advancing trade.
At the heart of global supply, Trafigura connects the world with the vital resources it needs. Through our Oil and Petroleum Products, Metals and Minerals, and Power and Renewables divisions, we deploy infrastructure, skills and a global network to move commodities from where they are plentiful to where they are needed most, forming strong relationships that make supply chains more efficient, secure and sustainable.
Through our oil, metals, power & renewables and shipping divisions, we’ve built a global trading operation. As one of the world’s largest independent trading firms, we connect counterparties around the world. We do that by balancing supply and demand, optimising supply chains and configuring our business around their needs.
In an increasingly competitive marketplace, being ready to respond swiftly to shifting patterns of demand is a key differentiator. We ensure we have the resources and agility to build long-term value with our customers in fast-changing markets.
