Judging by the raging economic crisis which has left a number of concerned parties in the field of trade with much to think about, one may think that access to robust and restricted markets could mean detrimental adventure, should one take an attempt in this direction? Ironically, this appears to be the opposite owing to the fact that in geopolitically-restricted markets lies hidden fortune.
As we seek to lift this subject off the ground, it should be borne in mind that experts in the field of trade are currently working round the clock in an attempt to have their fair share irrespective of the current economic crisis, a concern which has left the world with high inflation, but amazingly offering the needed icing on the cake for the experienced traders. While crises may seem damaging to the global economy, it’s also at the same time offering a massive trade volume which its high proportion is exclusively accessed by wizards in this sphere, and at the same time paving the way for a marginal edge over their competitors.
A period of crisis is believed to be crucial for all economies and arguably detrimental to cross-border trade, thus, an issue of obvious concern, yet core to monetary flow which is associated with the universal saying – “in a period of crisis money moves”. Hence, we might wonder why this is the case, in a period of economic and political frictions, however, this is significant because demand across regional markets deepens during period of crisis due to artificially created scarcity and trade barriers. Therefore, to bring us to the context of the subject topic, it will interest you to know that these barriers in all forms of its appearance may seem detrimental but create an avenue for the experienced wizards in the field of trade to amass trade volume that is sourced and secured at a discounted cost from restricted markets being the place of origin.
Meanwhile, access to sanctioned markets could undoubtedly prove difficult due to restrictions that, in turn, restrain these markets’ contribution to the global supply chain, however, these politically created barriers are ironically bridged by trade professionals who understand the principle of global trade architecture, since crisis offers the needed opportunity and output, taking advantage of the markets prone to compromise becomes significant. Let’s take for instance, the case of a robust market that has been politically restrained from participating freely in the global supply chain due to frictions or other reasons, in fairness, is bound to compromise, and as a result, favorable trading conditions precisely in the areas of commodity and shipping costs are offered at a fairly lower cost, which could as well mean reduced freight rate for every trade originated from such markets.
For the novice in the field of trade, it may sound unimaginable since strict adherence to the stipulated trade policy by WHO and regional political blocs could make things really difficult, should traditional trade architecture be undermined as practiced by wizards in the current economic climate, shipping from sanction states may seem unimaginable adventure but the way forward. Meanwhile, one may ask how shipments are successfully carried out to and fro these restricted markets!
To put things nicely down, it’s worth noting that they’re a couple of facts we need to know, precisely how commodities are coordinated and shipped to and fro these markets – in practice without issues to destinations of interest. Firstly, is having a reputable trade partner or correspondent within and the neighboring market faced with trade restriction, giving that trade partner in these markets coordinate and ensure that shipments are successfully shipped through reputable carriers via safe transit routes to their correspondents or destination.
Further on this is rerouting shipments of all categories via a safe transit route void of geopolitical lookout. This is significant, noting that geopolitical friction is currently a root course of restricting these markets’ products. However, since trade sanctions are politically enforced on these states and not directly on their products, hence, rerouting commodities from restricted states to neighboring markets for onward shipping to the market of the final destination should add the needed icing on the cake. Should a shipper or firm adopt this measure through its trade partner, such trade will be carried out surprisingly with a lot less effort.
In the meantime, freight rates per shipment or voyage from sanctioned markets are offered at a much-reduced cost for obvious reasons, thereby offering trade experts maximized profit margin. Although, it may be thought that products from such markets meet the required standard due to their current value, if that is a concern, it’s fair to say that they’re of good quality irrespective of the category.
In view of this, while commodities appear to be making their contributions in the inflation space, the same in both categories (wet and dry cargo) are ironically being accessed from notable and robust markets understood to be under sanction based on political frictions by trade gurus, which beg the question – is period of crisis really a terrible period for trade experts or a period of added advantage for their target? However, in case your firm is still struggling due to the outcome of the current economic climate on trade, you’re required to think out of the box and bridge rules and barriers as others are smartly doing.
Lastly, it’s rather fair to state while urging interested individuals and firms to join the wagon in an attempt to have their fair share if you’re still left behind. Additionally, casting your net in the field of Energy, Agro, and Metal will certainly turn the tide and ensure that your firm’s bank account is kept smiling because these products are greatly sourced across regional markets.
