The work of a trading company
A trading company is a commercial business that buys products and sells it to customer. It handles products in a wide range of industries and is involved in all stages of the supply chain from development and purchasing of raw materials to manufacture, processing, distribution, and sale, providing services with high added-value. The function of a trading company is to identify constantly changing customer needs and to provide services that are a step ahead of the times.
There are two types of trading companies: general trading companies and specialized trading companies.
A general trading company operates in a wide range of fields and focuses more on business investment than on the basic trading business. In contrast, a specialized trading company operates a business in a specific field and focuses primarily on the trading business.
