Our knowledge and service defines who we are
Commodities are not always produced close to where there is demand. Mellon Group act as trader, distributors, supplying clients and moving products around the world. Most of the world’s iron ore is produced in Australia and Brazil, whilst most of the demand is in China. The gap between supplier and user is huge, and Mellon Group is trying to build a bridge on that.
The balance between supply and demand in energy and commodity products can be affected by many factors. In the longer term, demand trends are driven by economic conditions, technological advances or changes in government policy.
In the short term, weather or political unrest can affect the balance between demand and supply, and leave commodities producers, processors or distributors with too much or not enough product.
In addition to long term supply arrangements with clients – ensuring industrial clients have a steady supply of product they need to continue with the smooth day-to-day running of their operations – we also seek to identify and address short term market imbalances.
