ShoreTrade is an innovative B2B online seafood trading platform and marketplace, enabling the sale and purchase of seafood between the fisherman, fisheries, processors, wet shops, wholesalers, retailers, restaurateurs and hospitality groups. ShoreTrade provides end-to-end cold chain logistics ensuring freshness and maintaining quality of produce.
ShoreTrade is the “birthchild” of Amazon and Instagram, but for seafood and any other primary industry.
ShoreTrade gives a buyer the ability to source, purchase and trade our oceans freshest seafood at a click of a button, purchasing directly from the fishery and fisherman. Once signed up, buyers can browse all listed produce available for sale, either by:
1. Category of seafood
2. Favourite seafood type
3. Favourite seafood supplier
4. Recently added seafood items
ShoreTrade creates transparency throughout the procurement and purchasing cycle, giving the buyer sight of:
1. Who is selling the produce
2. Where the produce is coming from
3. How it compares in price to other similarly listed products.
The app gives buyers access to multiple fisheries and increases optionality when purchasing seafood. ShoreTrade prevents and eliminates the inherent mark-ups seen in the seafood industry by shortening the supply chain cycle, resulting in fresher fresh being made available to consumers at a fraction of the price.
Once products have been selected and added to your checkout basket, ShoreTrade provides real time, end-to-end cold chain logistics for all purchases. Buyers can select between air and road freight delivery options, including door-to-door delivery.
ShoreTrade is also a trading platform, offering users the ability to trade seafood products. AQUAFUTURES is a unique product of the ShoreTrade. Sellers on ShoreTrade can list and sell produce that has not yet been farmed or caught yet, indicating an expected availability date on the listing. Having sight of the listed AQUAFUTURES, buyers can purchase products ahead of the curve, factoring in the seasonality and cyclicality of products – given buyers the ability to be proactive rather than reactive. If buyers also have seller accounts on ShoreTrade, buyers can purchase AQUAFUTURES for fish types, that are whole in nature and relist the product as a variant of the whole fish (e.g. fillets of salmon).
Upon application, ShoreTrade also allows for buyers to apply for debt financing through the app. If approved, this presents buyers with a financing option on the ShoreTrade platform. Alternatively, accounts can be funded by way of EFT or Credit Card.
ShoreTrade is your end-to-end solution for trading seafood and any other primary produce, in a transparent and sustainable manner, eliminating the unnecessary middleman in the equation.
