Digital marketplaces have emerged as an alternative channel for wholesale trade. Such platforms enable traders to have a wider reach to customers in a more efficient manner and enjoy greater economies of scale.

Ride the digital wave by adopting digital solutions and automation to streamline your processes and be more productive. Train your employees in new skills, such as digital marketing and data analytics, which are essential for conducting trade in a digital era, and stay competitive in the global trading environment.

In recent years, greater environmental and social concerns have increased the demand for sustainable trading.

Wholesale traders are investing time and resources to adopt sustainable practices. Integrating environmental and sustainability elements into your sourcing and trading decisions will keep you relevant in the sector, and compliant with industry standards.

If you run trading desks, keep up with the sustainability standards to leverage on emerging opportunities in the wholesale trade sector.

Asia’s rapid population growth is driving the region’s urbanisation and consumer needs. This results in an increase in the region’s demand for goods such as food, infrastructure materials and equipment, and smart devices.

If you are in wholesale trade, you are well-positioned to capture wholesale trade opportunities in the region, with the support of a vibrant ecosystem and strong trade infrastructure in Singapore.
