The UTA online platform enables you to manage all selling, buying and shipping transactions in one place – from orders to shipping, communications, tracking, generating and filing documents, and even archiving. It enables considerable efficiencies, eliminating the need for traders to send representatives, reducing travel expenses and increasing profits.
Bids are visible to all involved and multiple buyers can compete for a batch. If the buyer requires product samples, the seller will send two sealed samples to the UTA sampling room at Andromeda Forwarding & Logistics’ facilities in Antwerp. The UTA will forward one sample to the potential buyer and retain the other for mediation in case a dispute arises.
