All-round Service for Commodities
Cocoa, rubbers, fruit, tea, coffee, hides, skins, paper, metals, grain, spices, nuts – quartermasters specialize in a host of different commodities. The merchant profits primarily from his quartermasters’ deep knowledge and practical experience of the various commodities. A quartermaster’s work is multi-facetted. Apart from receiving consignments, he is responsible for taking samples for quality control purposes. Prior to appropriate storage, on occasion the quartermaster will refine and process commodities. He also looks after onward transport to the customer, including all the formalities, e.g. Customs clearance. Thanks to the quartermaster’s expert supervision of commodities and the personal advice he offers, the merchant is spared the need to be present throughout handling of them. He can rely on the scrupulous care, expertise and experience of his quartermaster.
