German Supplier From Frankfurt Delivers Critical Raw Materials Despite Shortages

The industrial demand for raw materials such as strategic metals, platinum metals and rare earths can be supplied by TRADIUM GmbH. Based in Frankfurt, TRADIUM offers a large product selection with very quick delivery times.

Frankfurt, March 30th, 2022 – One of the most renowned German commodity and metal traders, TRADIUM GmbH, offers a reliable supply despite the ever-increasing procurement crisis in the commodity market. On top of the ongoing Corona pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine conflict is affecting the economy and causing further supply shortages as well as delays in transportation. Many commodity traders have already had to inform their industrial customers about uncertain delivery times and rising logistics costs. Due to longer grown independency from currently uncertain supply chains TRADIUM is able to deliver a wide range of critical raw materials of industrial quality and quantities on short notice. The company, based in Frankfurt, Germany, has been supplying technology metals, platinum metals and rare earths for more than 20 years.
