Among all other agro foods, Sugar is the most profitable and widely traded global commodity. Doing global trade transactions can be risky for sugar traders, as they usually deal with buyers & sellers from different legal jurisdictions. Also, this increases the risks of both parties such as non-payment for the supplied goods; which leaves the seller with lengthy waits to recover the payment. Also, on the other hand, the supplier’s negligence in complying with rules will end with the buyers with large fines and tariff bills. So, to secure your trade deals from the risks involved, Bronze Wing Trading, the Trade Finance Providers in Dubai is here to help you by providing a Standby Letter of Credit.
UAE has witnessed a growing demand for sugar this year. By knowing the emerging demand, a UAE buyer decided to earn some profits by importing sugar from overseas and supply to the local market. So, they searched for the Sugar supplier via portals. As a result, they have chosen the one from Brazil. Since the buyer required 600,000MT of sugar; the seller agreed to supply them 50,000 MT.
As both the buyer and seller were well aware of the risk involved in global trade deals; they both agreed to use Trade Finance to conclude their sugar transaction.
According to their agreement, the buyer needs to provide a Standby Letter of Credit from a rated bank to the seller’s bank account. On the other hand, after receiving the SBLC, the seller has to provide a performance bond of 2% value of the contract to the buyer’s bank. And then, after the shipment of sugar to the buyer’s port, the seller has to submit all shipping documents to the buyer’s bank for confirmation & payment. So, they can receive the payment within 5 working days.
Since the buyer and the seller mutually agreed on all the above terms; they signed the SPA to conclude the sugar import using SBLC MT760.
To get Standby LC, the buyer contacted their bank. But the bank was ready to lend their help to the buyer upon 100% cash margin, additionally its charges. Already, the buyer faced financial crashes in their running business; so they can’t able to arrange the liquid cash to provide cash margin for the issuance of SBLC MT760. So, they searched for the solution and finally came to BWT, the genuine provider of trade finance services in Dubai.
Within the very first day, we approved their SBLC request as the Buyer complies with all our terms and conditions. Since the buyer wanted to conclude the deal on an urgent basis; so, they signed the service agreement & paid the admin charges on the same day. Also, we worked with our bank in regards to their sugar deal and provided the MT760 draft for their review. And then, the buyer approved the MT760 draft with the consent of their supplier and paid the issuance fee charges. Then, within the next 24hrs, the seller’s bank received the MT760 on behalf of the buyer from our bank account.
With the issued Standby LC, the seller started the first shipment of sugar (12,500 MT) packed in 50kg bags via sea freight. And then, the buyer received the sugar & started supplying it to the local market & earned handsome profits. Finally, the buyer conveyed their heartfelt thanks to Bronze Wing Trading stating as follows, “Thank you, Team! You did a great job in helping me to get an SBLC from a good-rated Bank. Also, the help which you did in this COVID crisis is really great!”
