Trading Patterns

Horizon trading patterns stem largely from regional trading routes in and out of the west coast of South America. In recent years diversification has resulted in the addition of participation in global trading routes for not only minerals but also other commodities.


Traditionally prime commodities carried were mineral concentrates  which are still the  most important cargoes carried, forming the backbone of the business platform. 

In addition to its traditional trade to Europe, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the United States, Horizon diversified trading patterns  by intensifying its focus on cargoes within the Pacific Basin with destinations in the Far East and India. 

Furthermore, Horizon developed coastal trades from west coast South America to west coast Mexico and North Pacific.

Horizon is naturally growing with their longstanding clients and diversified  trading activities in which  is constantly adding new commodities and trading patterns to Horizon's portfolio.
