MaterialsXchange (MX) is an an electronic marketplace for buying and selling raw materials that went live in October 2019. [1]


History

The first listings on MaterialsXchange (MX) were wood products, specifically Oriented Strand Board, European Spruce lumber and Southern Yellow Pine lumber. The inaugural transaction on MX matched Binderholz Timber Inc. (a seller) with Hart Lumber a (buyer) for a first-ever deal between the two and consisted of a full truckload of 2x4 Euro Spruce from the Port of Houston.

Historically, the commodity materials markets have been impeded by a lack of price transparency and an inefficient “call around” structure.

Products and Services

MX’s platform is designed to offer its users real-time pricing for commodity raw materials, increasing efficiency for all market participants.
