Secondary Market - Trader Lists

Modified on:: Thu, 17 Dec, 2020 at 2:55 PM



Trader lists are an additional functionality of the secondary market that can be used to restrict secondary tradings to a defined number of counterparties. 

When creating a trade proposal or placing a response, shippers can decide whether they would like to apply a trader list.

Trader lists may be prepared in advance or created during the creation of the trade proposal.


  • A trader list has to have at least three public shippers.
  • Once a trader list is used, it can be withdrawn but no other list can be applied to the same trade proposal or response.
  • Once a trader list is applied, additional entries (shipper companies) may be added to the list.
  • Entries may only be removed after the trade proposal or response has reached a final status (e.g. expired or finished).
