Trammo began its business in fertilizers in 1967 and grew to be one of the world’s predominant fertilizer merchandising companies. Trammo offers its business partners expertise throughout the entire supply chain, from origination, transportation and logistics to marketing and delivery.
Its Multimodal Terminal in Batumi, Georgia on the Black Sea, financed by Trammo and its local partner Wondernet Express LLP, with support from the government of Georgia, opens a strategic logistics corridor for the transit of finished fertilizers by vessels, barges, and railcars from Central Asia to the West.
Trammo's role in the global supply chain
Its Batumi, Georgia Terminal on the Black Sea with modern equipment for handling fertilizers as well as its ability to work with multiple suppliers to source products has enabled Trammo to strengthen global supply chains.
“With our new Batumi export terminal on the Black Sea, we are helping landlocked producers, particularly those in central Asia, move fertilizers and sulfur to new markets.”

Urea is the most widely used and economical of all nitrogenous fertilizers used in the world today. Urea, with a 46 percent nitrogen content, is a solid nitrogen fertilizer product. Produced from ammonia and carbon dioxide, it has the highest nitrogen content of any solid nitrogen fertilizer.
Urea can be applied by itself, or it can be easily mixed with phosphate and potash fertilizers, often as part of a total NPK (nitrogen, phosphate, and potash) plant food mix. As a granular product, urea can be applied directly to the soil using conventional spreading equipment. It is the most common form of nitrogen fertilizer used around the world.
Emerging market countries are important consumers of solid fertilizers, with many obtaining their supply contract bids on a competitive tender basis. The ability to work with suppliers to source products on conditional terms, contingent upon being awarded contracts, has enabled Trammo to achieve a strong market position within the industry.
