I have a vague recollection the Arab slave trade was marginally connected with the US slave trade.  Was it that the American captains of slaving ships would buy from anyone with a pen full of slaves?  I don't think there was a well formed merchant protocol like ordering 300 slaves from the Acme Slave Corporation of Liberia, and then picking up your order at the dock.  I think it was more like slaving captains visiting usual places where kidnappers and slave drivers brought slaves, and then filling their holds wherever they could be filled.

Your understanding is generally correct.
