As of the recent study, Japan makes its presence in the Middle East as the largest importer of Bitumen High Grade. As well as, for this, they depend on Middle East Countries for their Bitumen imports. To cover the Bitumen consumption of the country; a petroleum trader in Japan decided to import Bitumen High Grade from UAE. And for that, they required LC Payable at Sight. Accordingly, Bronze Wing Trading, the Letter of Credit Providers in Dubai facilitated DLC at Sight to cover their Bitumen import.
The buyer from Japan owns a huge storage capacity of Bitumen High Grades 40/50, 50/70, 60/70, 80/100, and 85/100 to supply in the domestic market. Further, to expand their sales and to cover the demands of the country; they decided to import Bitumen from Middle East Countries. Also, while searching for a reliable supplier of Bitumen; they found a vendor from Dubai, UAE. Further, the Supplier and the Buyer mutually agreed to import Bitumen of different grades on the basis of DLC Payment at Sight.
