Pre and Post Shipment Facilities
Pre Shipment Financing is issued when the seller wants the payment of the goods before shipment. The main objectives behind pre-shipment finance or pre export finance is to enable exporter (customer) to:
- Procure raw materials.
- Carry out the manufacturing process.
- Provide a secure warehouse for goods and raw materials.
- Process and pack the goods.
- Ship the goods to the buyers.
- Meet other financial cost of the business
With pre-shipment financing the working-capital finance requirements are provided for by Credit Bank to the Customer / Exporter provided there is a confirmed export order from an end buyer/off taker or against a Letter of Credit.
Post Shipment Financing is on the other hand provided to an exporter or seller against a shipment that has already been made. It is provided against evidence of shipment of goods or supplies made to the importer or seller or any other designated agency.
With this facility, exporters don’t wait for the importer to deposit the funds.
This facility is usually provided against avalised bills by the importer’s bank or under accepted bills under the LC.
- It improves liquidity of the business
- It eases cash flow position by providing greater financial liquidity & flexibility in administrating receivables
- It allows the exporter more liberal terms of payment to existing buyers thus competing with foreign suppliers.
