Brokers vs. Retailers: Evidence from the French imports industry of fresh produce

Abstract : There is little discussion in the literature about trade intermediaries because data is rare. Using very original data, our article sheds light on the behavior of trade intermediaries when importing fresh fruit and vegetables in France. To do so, we distinguish the shares of direct and indirect imports of fresh produce respectively operated through French brokers or retailers. Accounting for the bounded nature of the share, we show that brokers are more likely to operate in small countries with high variable costs than retailers.
