Risk Management

Koch Supply & Trading's energy derivatives and metals groups tailor products to help counterparties manage price and cost volatility, creating a more fungible base commodity product and financial liquidity in pricing indices.

This is accomplished through swaps, used for locking in purchase or sale prices, and other customized derivatives designed to manage exposure to price risk.

Logistics and Operations

Koch Supply & Trading's marine logistics company, Koch Shipping Inc., manages product flow to ensure commodities bought and sold by its customers arrive safely and on time. Koch Shipping offers freight trading, ship inspections and worldwide ship operations. Koch Shipping's managers review performance of tankers long before a drop of product reaches their hulls. This vetting process is designed to ensure that known-quality vessels are available for use.

Since 2000, Koch Shipping has managed 6,500 charters moving about 1.6 billion barrels of crude, petroleum products, and chemicals.
