A paradigm shift is occurring within the commodities shipping industry. More and more, foreign entities want to skip the traditional way of purchasing their products where there has been a merchant in between the seller (grower) and the buyer (foreign company).
Similarly, sellers are showing a preference toward direct sales to increase their margins. These two-party transactions help alleviate costs and allow buyers to gain more control over both the quality of the product they receive and the timeliness of the shipments.
With a long history as a commodities merchant, Dunavant is uniquely positioned to help these foreign buyers and sellers understand the nuances of shipping commodities from farm to final destination.
