Why Should you Attend
Companies that export products internationally can use Transferable Documentary Letters of Credit to finance the purchase of goods for shipment. The exporting company (1st beneficiary) of a letter of credit can 'transfer' all or a portion of the credit to a second party or supplier (2nd beneficiary) for the purchase of goods and services. When the supplier ships the goods, the negotiating bank can replace the 2nd beneficiary's invoice with the 1st beneficiary's invoice for the full value of the letter of credit.
This 60-minute comprehensive training will help exporters understand Transferable Letters of Credit and how to use them for financing the purchase goods from a supplier for shipment.
