Trading in polymers involves sourcing and distribution of polymers. Trading companies work with suppliers and customers and rely on their distribution network to ensure timely delivery. Essentially, traders bridge the gap between producers and end-users and serve as an important link in the polymer supply chain. The success of a trading company depends on its ability to sell polymers at a competitive price, with the right quality and at the requested time. It necessitates in-depth understanding of the market in addition to product knowledge and the ability to provide accurate information and respond promptly to market needs.
