Manly Terminal launches online trading service

By | November 03, 2008
Iowa-based Manly Terminal LLC has launched an Internet-based ethanol and multi-products trading platform, allowing buyers and sellers of various commodities to easily and anonymously post trade offers anytime. The service is free of charge to registered users looking to make transactions, and matches buyers and sellers each business day between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Though ethanol was the first commodity to be introduced, the company plans to add more commodities in the future, according to Manly Terminal President Lee Kiewiet. "We are only letting registered people view or use the site so that we don't have it work against them in any way," he said. "This gives buyers just another outlet to purchase their product."
