About Us

Welcome to globalORE

globalORE™ is a trading platform for iron ore founded in 2012 by Baosteel, BHP Billiton, Glencore, Hunan Valin, Minmetals, Rio Tinto and Vale.

Our objective is to support the development of a deeply liquid and transparent traded marketplace for physical iron ore.

The Standard Iron Ore Trading Agreement (SIOTA™), developed by globalORE, is a fundamental part of our business model.

Trading on a standardised basis provides an efficient and transparent channel to buy and sell iron ore.

We are headquartered in Singapore and led by a management team that operates with neutrality and independence.
