Cross Trade

When cargo is transported from one country to another without going via the local business base – whether that be by road, rail, sea or air – this is known as cross trade. Cross trade is also sometimes referred to as triangular trade (due to three countries being involved), third party shipments or foreign-to-foreign shipments. Cross trade services are a cost-effective and efficient way to move goods from manufacturers to customers.
