Importing Goods

How We Work with Importers

Accord Global Trade has over a decade of experience in importing goods. We are a specialized team of Intermediary Traders (Intermediary Sellers) of large and revolving Secondary Market commodities & products in demand globally. We sell goods from the secondary markets on behalf of undisclosed Principal Exporters (Ultimate Suppliers) in accordance with acceptable English and European Rules of Agency. To the Importer (Ultimate Buyer), Accord Global Trade is the Principal Intermediary Seller.

We do not engage in small contracts or small revolving loads. We are only interested in large revolving contracts or very large single shipment. We have established long-term business relationships with many producers, suppliers, and manufacturers in the agriculture, construction, mining & metals, chemical, energy, and other sectors that can supply bulk commodities & products on a long-term basis to meet our secured clients’ increasing demands.

Commodity Exchanges

Our company sells its commodities and products to a select group of traders, and we use top Commodity Exchanges in the world, as global benchmarks that allow us to provide our clients with competitive prices. We screen all of our end buyers extensively and rigorously before offering or accepting purchase orders. This is done to ensure our resources are only directed toward genuine and qualified end buyers as well as protecting the interests of our producers, suppliers, manufacturers, bankers, and investors from fraudulent transactions.
