REUSE TRADING started as the trading arm of the logistics company REUSE NV, a member of the large French logistics group BALGUERIE. The first trading activities were done in 2013 under the umbrella of REUSE NV. Chemical raw material and tropical oils have become our main trading products, but we can say we have always been open to a wider range of products.
Considering the consecutive yearly growth and the specificity of the sector, the separate entity REUSE TRADING NV was established in April 2015. From then on, the team could fully dedicate its time and efforts to connecting worldwide producers with African entities while developing its logistic knowledge. In the beginning we focused on Africa, our favorite continent. Thanks to an extensive network of relations and agents, we built a large range of importers and industries, starting in Sub-Saharan Africa. East-, Central and West-Africa was our playing field, but soon thereafter also North and South Africa followed. We can now proudly claim to be specialists in shipping products to and from Africa, knowing the ins and outs of import regulations, inspection requirements, customs matters for full container loads and consolidated cargo. Over the past years we strongly developed the intra-Africa trade and promoted African exports. Clients became suppliers and suppliers became clients.
In 2020 Reuse Trading decided to jump west to the Americas. Central- and South-America – where we were buying raw material since the early days – seemed to be an interesting playground for our newly formed Latin sales team. Our knowledge of chemical raw material and vegetable oils was the perfect combination to enter this market successfully.
