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.
Keep in mind:
- A trader list has to have at least three public shippers.
- If a trader list is used in a proposal, it can be withdrawn but no other list can be applied to the same trade proposal or response.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).
