2. Trade Finance
Doing things differently
InHouse Trade is the latest addition to the InHouse service offering, whereby we enable importers to trade finance and ship their goods, all with one company as one transaction. It will be as though you procured your goods locally. No mess. No fuss.
Traditionally, trade finance product offerings were the domain of larger banking institutions. InHouse has changed that.
Enables importers to finance imports from abroad on a post shipment basis.
Allows the importer to finance goods purchased from overseas suppliers in the currency of the invoice.
Enables the importer to pay for goods on shipment, thereby putting them in a position to negotiate discounts with their overseas supplier.
Minimises exchange risk by using hedging instruments available in the market.
InHouse Trade’s mandate is to make the importing process as effortless and affordable as possible. In fact, we even generate a final invoice in South African Rand price per unit. Working through InHouse Trade is therefore akin to buying your goods locally.
InHouse Trade incorporates all of these trade finance characteristics and more.
If you frequently turn to InHouse Ziegler Logistics as your preferred freight logistics supplier, you’ll gain entry to InHouse Ziegler Rewards. This loyalty program has been specifically designed to thank those clients who consistently depend on us for all their shipping needs and giving them a little something back.
InHouse Ziegler Rewards are allocated through a yearly refund structure. At the end of every financial year, the increased spend of your business will be calculated and compared to that of the previous year.
Our data eCRM system is readily available to all our clients. Through this system you can acquire data information transfers to your integrated system; the hosting of the entire electronic format of all your shipments and customs-required documents; the ability to generate customised reports for up-to-date management requirements; and historical data for up to 10 years.
Our other IT services include customised integration and add-on applications to suit your business; direct EDI interface to customs with electronic tariff updates and shipment release mechanisms; and electronic clearing instructions.
Our in-house legal counsel is just another way we’re trying to improve and simplify the business experience for all our clients.
With this service, you’ll not only have access to our internal legal counsel but will also receive legal advice with respect to your supply chain requirements. We are also proud to offer our clients a drafting and implementation of foreign supplier sales agreements service as well as managing all legal matters in relation to your importer’s code and the submission of legal documents to SARS.
