intermediarios/mediadores (ver explicación)


Explanation:
imagino que el intermediary cobra un porcentaje( o algo) por sus servicios y está contratado por una o por todas las partes interesadas. el middleman me suena a que está en la plantilla de una de las partes y actúa como mediador.
al menos es lo único que se me ocurre sin investigar en españa es la 1:30 y tengo muuucho sueño)

intermediarios/distribuidores


Explanation:
De acuerdo al contexto específico puede haber un término más exacto:

Un intermediario puede realizar las siguientes actividades: Compra, Venta, Clasificación, Acumulación, Transporte, Financiamiento, Almacenamiento, etc .. por nombrar algunas.
En una cadena de producción el "middleman" es un distribuidor, que hace actividades de mayorista (compra y venta de mercancía a los minoristas o a industrias, instituiciones y usuarios comerciales).
Espero sirva.
