The REUSE Group was established in 1959 and built over the past decades a very strong financial base. As owner of a large historical building in the old City Centre of Antwerp and as member of the French Balguerie Group, REUSE had all the financial bases at hand to start its trading activity in 2013.
This excellent financial situation allows REUSE TRADING to enter into transactions with our customers and partners in various ways. Based on audited balance sheets and financial results of suppliers and customers, we define the best payment terms. In close communication with our financial institutions and in cooperation with the credit insurance companies, we assess the best way of financing in order to optimize commercial risks as much as possible. This can be by transacting on the base of Letter of Credit, pre-payment or deferred payment.
REUSE TRADING ensures worldwide producers connect with African industries. We ship from 1 kg to thousands of tons whether it be airfreight shipments, consolidated cargo, full container loads or break bulk shipments. To ensure the cargo arrives smoothly, we choose the most optimal shipping lane based on price, service, conditions at port of loading and discharge, transit time, number of transit ports etc… Apart from pure shipping line, we offer a complete package: we ship all cargo under our full cargo transport insurance, which covers the transport risk from warehouse to warehouse. We organize the entire transport process from supplier to customer: we transport, warehouse, follow the inspection requirements, whether it is through SGS, BIVAC, Cotecna, Intertek or any other. We organize the waivers, resolve the customs matters, through our in-house customs department…
REUSE TRADING is the trading arm of the logistics company REUSE NV, established in 1959 and member of the large French logistics group BALGUERIE. Reuse Trading started its activities in 2013 under the umbrella of REUSE NV. 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 continuing to count on the logistic knowledge and financial support of REUSE NV.
We focus on Africa, our favorite continent. Thanks to an extensive network of relations and agents, we have built a large list of importers and industries, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa. East-, Central and West-Africa is our playing field. We are the specialist in shipping products to Africa, knowing the ins and outs of import regulations, inspection requirements, customs matters for full container loads, consolidated cargo. We develop also the intra-Africa trade, and promote African exports. Clients become suppliers. Suppliers become clients.
REUSE TRADING decided to support the mission of a diabetic traveler who wants to cross Africa from North to South.
The idea is to show other diabetics and the public that, even being diabetic, it is possible to travel solo in difficult conditions. At the same time, we would like to raise money for diabetes and health related projects in Africa.
