Digital efficiency in commodity trading
Mineral and fossil raw materials and fuels, such as stones, sand, gravel, natural gas, petroleum and coal, peat and slags, as well as rare earths, gemstones, salts and minerals are the goods of this industry. Germany, Austria and Switzerland are major importers here, but also act as exporters and suppliers to domestic markets. The commodities sector is therefore a key industry in the DACH region, just as important as the major automotive and mechanical engineering industries.
Blockchains for better traceability of commodity extraction as well as faster transactions are playing an increasingly important role, as are data-based tools in logistics and human resources.
Digitalization has fundamentally changed the way commodities are traded. Many companies in commodity trading have already started to use digital technologies to make their business processes more efficient and transparent.
