Cross Trading

Cross Trade Shipping and Logistics Services

What is cross trading?
Cross Trade, also known as Triangular Trade, Third-Party Shipments, or Foreign-to-Foreign Shipments, is a transaction involving three parties in three different countries.
It refers to cargo that is transported by either road, rail, air, or sea from an origin to a destination country. This is where the seller of the goods is not the manufacturer or exporter – like in dropshipping – but where up to three different countries may be involved. It’s mainly when the seller is not in the same country as where the goods originate from.

An example would be a Greek company that decides to ship products from Brazil to Spain.
As mentioned above at Elite Logistics we understand the cross trade rules, so due to our strong worldwide network, we can handle and manage under high control any cross-trading cargo pick-up from anywhere to cargo discharge anywhere without passing or crossing Egypt.

Why does Elite Logistics recommend Cross Trade for its customers?

Lower Supply Chain Costs: Cross trade eliminates bringing the goods to the seller’s country or location and all associated costs with it such as freight, duties, and taxes.
Supply Chain Efficiency: Cross trade decentralizes the supply chain by placing production and stock closer to the final destination.
Shorter Transit Time: Cross trade can cut down the time of travel, allowing greater cost savings.
