In July of 2019, after extensive client feedback, CME Group globalized the physically deliverable Aluminum futures offering by expanding our approved aluminum warehouse network to include locations in North America, Asia, and Europe.
The expanded CME Group warehousing network allows participants to deliver and take delivery of aluminum in nine locations globally, with the ability for both indoor and outdoor storage. In-warehouse inventory has increased by over 800% since the globalization, indicating how many traders are adopting the Aluminum futures contract for their physical trading needs.

Comprised of four exchanges - CME, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX - we offer the widest range of global benchmark products across all major asset classes, helping businesses everywhere mitigate the myriad of risks they face in today's uncertain global economy.
