AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Trade Technologies, the global leader in international trade document solutions, announced today that in 2012 they surpassed their record-breaking performance for 2011. For 2012, Trade Technologies processed over $9 billion of international trade transactions -- completing over 28,000 transactions (up 12% from 2011) and achieving record revenues (an increase of 18% over 2011).
“We are very proud of Trade Technologies’ performance in 2012,” said Kirk Lundburg, CEO of Trade Technologies. “Our exporter customers rely on our industry leading services and patented technology to accelerate payment and minimize risk for their international trade transactions. Trade Technologies' ability to deliver a proven global solution from 10 worldwide locations and to immediately present original UCP 600 compliant trade documents online to over a dozen of the world’s largest trade banks clearly differentiated our services especially for large multinational companies.”
For the year, Trade Technologies completed over 11,000 fully electronic presentations of original letter of credit documents to major trade banks. Each of these presentations contained originals and copies of all required documents, including all types of original third-party “e-transport documents,” such as carrier bills of lading, house bills of lading, forwarder cargo receipts and air waybills. Since 2003, when Trade Technologies pioneered online presentations, Trade Technologies has successfully completed over 55,000 fully electronic presentations. In total, Trade Technologies has accomplished over 150,000 international trade transactions with a total value of over $45 billion since its founding in 1999.
Trade Technologies’ patented web-based Global Trade Management Platform and professional outsourced services have revolutionized archaic, paper-based international payment practices to provide exporters with consistency, predictability and visibility into global collections processes. The Company’s patented technology and business process lead the way in enabling exporters and freight forwarders to create accurate trade documents and to deliver original documents over the internet to major international trade banks and buyers. This far more efficient process allows customers to streamline their operations, eliminate discrepancies, save money and accelerate payments.
