Our company vision is simple and ambitious: we aim to form long-lasting relations with customers. We do so by placing the utmost care in understanding customer requirements, using a market-oriented approach, so as to deliver tailor-made services that are able to add maximum value to your business.



In 30 years, we have sold over 30 million tons of materials. We boast a unique know-how in international shipping, an extremely high percentage of successful charters and a natural propensity for long-term contracts. Our team, supported by Flame’s shipping department, with which we closely cooperate, is always abreast of market developments and is able to handle requests involving any size of ship, from smaller vessels, such as barges and sea-river units, to Panamax ships. A global network of agents/forwarders enables us to offer multiple logistic solutions, including the possibility of using storage depots, transhipment arrangements and door deliveries via barges/sea-river vessels or trucks. This flexibility is what makes it possible for us to supply tailor-made solutions to suit all requirements. We are also able to rely on a shipping agency with a global network, allowing us to provide a complete offering and meet all types of requests, at both loading and unloading locations.

Inland Haulage


We handle all aspects of inland haulage, optimising every phase of the road and rail haulage processes, coordinating them with intermodal and river movements. Thanks to our long-standing cooperation with reliable logistic partners and strategically-located storage depots, we are able to guarantee timely pick-ups and deliveries, in the lots and daily quantities that are requested by customers.

Our integrated logistics approach allows us to achieve significant cost effectiveness through the use of combined journeys. We can rely on extensive territorial coverage, meaning we are able to use multiple routes and effectively match sources and customers, leading to a substantial reduction in costs. Door delivery makes Ecotrade your ideal partner not only for the quality of its materials but also for the completeness of its service, representing an all-round highly-reliable choice.
