Guide to the Site

The internet site of the Italian Online Commodities Exchange was set up with the following principles in mind:

  • Setting up a portal easy to consult, usable and dynamic. The site structure has been modelled on a very simplified navigation plan which in addition to the homepage return command also gives five distinct items in the main menu (buttons located horizontally on the navigation bar at the top) corresponding to the most important areas, a menu in the left column area, a few rapid access boxes in the right column and especially a navigation pathway highlighted with the text "You are in..".
  • Pursuance of the Stanca Law, which relates to public bodies to make sure their informative platforms obey the widely-recognised principles of usability and accessibility;
  • Realisation of a single portal which enables access to subsites of the three organs which together constitute the Italian Online Commodities Exchange: the Management Company, the National Deputation and the Chambers of Commerce;
  • Setting up a multilingual platform. 

There follows a brief description of the five items in the main menu.

The Online Market
The Italian Online Commodities Exchange manages the online platform for dealing in agricultural, agro-energetic, agri-food, fish products and for logistics services. The online system was set up with the aim of matching demand and supply of a product via a continuous auction mechanism of the one-to-many type, which also reflected market dynamics and enabled prices to be settled in real-time. Online markets are disciplined by Product Special Regulations, predisposed and adopted according to the indications of the the Committees of the Supply Chain  and the National Deputation, and the General Dispositions for dealing on BMTI.

As well as access services to the online platform and information on the markets (prices, reports, analyses and product studies), BMTI provides accredited operators with accessory online dealing services.

The communication area informs market operators, Chambers of Commerce and media on the main activities of the Italian Online Commodities Exchange. The area is articulated in four sections:  Events, Press Releases, Newsletters, Press Clippings, Video.
