Trade has been practiced since ancient times, at a smaller or larger scale, in almost every civilization of the world, nowadays knowing a maximum extent and variety (wholesale trade, retail, trade in stores, e-commerce).
Trade originates from Middle English (“path, course of conduct”), introduced into English by Hanseatic merchants. The term “Commerce” is derived from the Latin commercium, from cum “together” and merx, “merchandise”. Trade has gone through multiple development stages, emerging in prehistoric times alongside with human communication, from the rudimentary barter meaning the exchange of the goods you posses in excess with the goods you need. Starting with the third millennium BC, flourishing centres of trade are to be found and multiple trade routes are set either by sea or by land, at an international scale: the Sumerians from Mesopotamia traded with the Harappa Civilization in the Indus Valley, and the Phoenicians – skilful sailors – traded alongside Mediterranean coast with the populations from southern Europe and northern Africa. Compared to the ancient times, in the 19th and 20th centuries, the trade reached an unprecedented level of development – a wide variety of products were sold on the market, giving importance mainly to the cost of production or acquisition and the selling price of these goods.
Trade is currently at its best thanks to the special attention given to every detail involved in this process. Trade is no longer seen as sole acts performed in certain points in time, but a meticulous work of art for building long term relations with the customers and retain them by offering complete solutions to meet their needs: exhaustive product range, complementary products, before-purchase and after-sales services.
