    Originators and storage companies are fundamental links in the food-supply chain. They meet with farmers and negotiate purchases of hundreds of millions of tonnes of grain and other crops every year. The responsibility of ensuring quality and appropriate allocation resides on their shoulders. Physical traders align purchasing quantities with domestic and overseas demand and mitigate price risks through hedging strategies. While brokers match buyers with sellers, dealers purchase and take title of a crop. Dealers may also own large parts of the value chain, including warehouses and transportation, to increase trade margins. Finally, trucks, trains, barges, and oceangoing vessels connect all categories of the agricultural industry. Timely transport can affect cost and quality.
