You can also manage sureties, guarantees, standby letters of credit and document delivery by using our Trade Services portal.
Documentary credits are vital supports for guaranteeing your international transactions and are recognized worldwide. We verify and promise to process the received documents strictly according to the terms of the documentary credit.
To effectively guarantee export payments (provided the exporter complies with the documentary credit terms and conditions), we can also confirm export documentary credits.
You can also manage your import/export documentary credit transactions online via the Trade Services portal. For import transactions, you can create, update and keep track of your files. For export transactions, you acknowledge delivery and follow up on line those documentary credits received in your favor.
Cash against document
For import operations, when a documentary credit has been received in your favor we inform you swiftly so that you can give us payment instructions and notice of acceptance.
As regards export operations, we arrange for payment and presentation of documents so you can take possession of your merchandise.
