Triangular trade

Triangular trade refers to a route used in the 18th century between England, the west coast of Africa, and the Caribbean. Ships from England would ply the African coast picking up slaves from African suppliers and sell them in the Caribbean before sailing back to England with trade goods such as sugar and cocoa. This makes a triangle on a map hence the term "triangular trade".
