INTERMEX GROUP, Inc. has developed a financial technology solution which has evolved into a virtual Commodities Marketplace. In cooperation with various government agencies in Mexico, the first application fills a critical void to provide an orderly market for refined petroleum products. The recent privatization of the petroleum business in Mexico has exposed the basic requirement for private fuels distribution and INTERMEX has seized this private enterprise opportunity and intends to make it a cornerstone of its future.

THE MARKETPLACE, a turnkey distribution solution.

Buyers and sellers of commercial quantities of refined petroleum now have a central electronic marketplace which provides real-time information regarding market conditions, price and market depth. A true auction market is available 24/ 7 to INTERMEX members.

LOGISTICAL support is provided to buyers and sellers alike to include:

  • Transportation
  • Insurance
  • Storage
  • Customs


FINANCING is available through INTERMEX Finance business unit for qualified buyers who require short-term financial assistance.
