GM Trading Companies
About Us


GM Trading Companies is headquartered in Washington DC, and has offices in Amsterdam and Dubai. Our offices are strategically setup to meet with our clients from all over the world. We look forward to meeting you in one of our offices.

Our history in the import and export business started in 1988. We were one of the first companies to have an exclusive textile trade agreement with China. We have sourced products such as sugar, bananas, and coffee for companies throughout the world from our humble beginnings. We continue to work with the same customers since receiving our first order of sugar.

Trust and integrity form the foundation of our success with the partnerships we have formed throughout the world. Our customers continue to partner with us because they trust us to source the best products.


Our trading experience includes areas in China, Germany, France, South America, and throughout the Middle East. We leverage our extensive relationships built over 20 years of experience to source top quality products. We have the contacts and resources to find what you are looking for at competitive prices.

Our customers have found our extensive knowledge regarding a wide variety of products, invaluable.

Our team of international trade associates represents an extensive supply network, with quick access to sources that allow us to get from “docs to docks” quickly.

Our principals have 50+ years of experience in sales, management, sourcing and shipping throughout the world.

When moving supplies from doc to dock, we have the following areas covered:

We have established excellent long-term relationships with the steamship lines servicing our supplies. We handle both LCL (Less than Container Loads) and FCL (Full Container Loads) shipments.

Our air shipment service utilizes the top air carriers to get your shipment expedited to you as quickly as possible. By having contracts with numerous air carriers we provide our customers with increased flexibility while also providing the most competitive pricing. Once instructed, we can have your shipment transported. This service enables our customers to get those urgent shipments as fast and as cost-effectively as possible.

Whether it is New York, London, Beijing, Dubai, Paris, Dusseldorf, or Ecuador, we can handle the pick-up and delivery of your shipment. Having been in the industry for years we have established many contacts that are able to transport your shipments from one place to another in a timely and affordable manner.
