Key Benefits of Focusing on Post-Shipment Trade Receivables Management



1. Pre-shipment

Once a buyer places a purchase order, the supplier initiates the production of the goods ordered. This crucial pre-shipment stage ensures that all specifications and requirements are met before dispatching the products to the buyer. 



2. Post-shipment

After production, the supplier arranges for the shipment of goods. Subsequently, an invoice is issued to the buyer detailing the transaction. During this phase, the risks related to suppliers, such as performance risk, are typically marginal, ensuring a smooth transition to delivery.



3. Check, Deliver & Pay

Once the goods are received, the buyer verifies their quality and approves the invoice. Following approval, the buyer disburses the funds to the supplier. This methodical approach significantly reduces the risk of fraud, ensuring a secure and trustworthy transaction process.

“Trade finance therefore has all the components that investors look for. It is a multi-trillion dollar asset class based on the flow of physical goods and services, making it less susceptible to financial market volatility. Default rates for trade finance products are generally lower and the time to recovery in case of default tends to be shorter than for other credit products”
