THE RIGHT METAL AT THE RIGHT TIME IN THE RIGHT PLACE

Since 2006, Oddo Group has been assisting companies with regard to the cost and supply of commodities. Oddo Metals is a key point of contact for industries and users of non-ferrous metals and electricity.

Specialising in the physical trading of aluminium, copper, zinc and tin, Oddo Metals manages purchasing, shipping, inventory financing and material flows of these non-ferrous metals. Oddo Metals also deals with price and currency hedging related to these activities.

Product expertise
Oddo Metals provides a high level of product expertise for its metal-processing clients. This expertise is supported and enriched by the team's long industry experience and access to the leading international producers.

Logistics management
As a full-service intermediary between producers and processors, Oddo Metals works on behalf of its clients to guarantee:

  • sourcing from world producers to safeguard supplies to processing sites
  • logistics, transport and storage of goods
  • associated customs and fiscal formalities

In a complex legal environment, the Oddo Metals team of specialists in chartering maritime, river, rail and road transport, ensure that deadlines are met and shipping is undertaken under optimum conditions.
 
Custody of flows and stocks
Oddo Metals provides clients with just-in-time management to minimise the necessary flows and directly-owned stocks.

Hedging
To complement this physical flow management, Oddo Metals offers a metal risk hedging service that secures margins by price and currency hedging. We also help with financing stocks and flows by reducing WCR.
