Baobab will change the way you make decisions

Baobab is a commodity trading & risk management platform designed to supplement the high demands of the commodities market. Most of the commodities market is currently running on spreadsheets and proprietary in-house systems. Baobab is a modern, powerful, commodity specific and cost effective system primarily focusing on grains, oil-seeds, chemicals and metals. The purpose of Baobab is to replace spreadsheets and legacy systems that were not designed for the complications of current markets.

Baobab is designed with the user in mind and results in all data entry points being validated and simplified, leading to a seamless process flow eliminating the need for double or triple capturing of the same information.
Our Baobab CTRM utilizes the INCO terms of 2020. Contracts can be created in Baobab and electronically signed. Stock can be purchased, financed, transferred and driven out on instruction. Transport can be arranged directly from the system it will generate the supplier, customer and transporter confirmations automatically. Deliveries can be uploaded directly from the mills sheets, silo dispatches or from the load bookings system. Additional costs can be added at any stage of the delivery or collection. Automatic storage calculations are done every evening and added to the cost of carry on each stock item. Our Adansonia report takes all stock, storage costs, transport costs and all other encompassing costs into account and produces a final profitability report strategically presenting your gross financial information for timeous and efficient decision making and reporting.
