Having worked for 25 years in the wood industry, this client wanted to open his own business. With years of experience and deep commercial knowledge of every step in the supply chain, he wanted to fund his first shipment to China against a letter of credit [L/C]. Trade Credebt® supported him when no one else would.

With 25 years’ experience and confirmed orders against an L/C, it was incredible that no one would fund my business.


This second-generation cattle dealer had negotiated a supply contract in Libya. Having negotiated the transaction, he needed to finance the deal and also the industry expertise needed to ship the livestock and process the paperwork. Trade Credebt® brokered a suitable partner and then funded the deal too.

I had the deal done. I had the supply side tied up too. What I really needed was the finance and expertise to deliver it.


A city metals trader, with 20 years’ experience in sourcing, buying, and selling metals, wanted to ‘go it alone’. Despite all his city connections, no one would support him in buying the manganese ore supply he had negotiated in Africa. Trade Credebt® understood his requirements and became his partner.

I knew the people. I knew the business, but I couldn't finance the whole trade.
engagement explain


After making contact with Trade Credebt® an appointment will be set for you to speak with a trade Specialist. Typically, contact happens through telephone and the initial conversation takes approximately 30 minutes. During this call, the Specialist will get a clear understanding of your business and your finance requirements. After that call, you will receive an email that summarises your needs in bullet point format. You amend/confirm this email and the Specialist will ask you to provide a set of documentation to support your application.

When all the requested documentation is supplied to the Specialist, they will prepare a proposal for the Trade Desk. If Trade Desk agrees in principal with the finance being sought, they will issue a single page Revolving Purchase Agreement [RPA] quotation.

The RPA is a document that is unique to Credebt®. A member of the team will call you and explain every aspect of this document so you can confirm the finance request, submit the online application, and begin trading. It’s that simple.


An initial engagement is typically for a single vessel. When you, the ship operator, are satisfied with how your account operates with us, you may choose to increase the finance amount as you need. Unlike a traditional lender, a Credebt® Shipping facility can be increased within a few days. Facilities are regularly extended to charter additional vessels, take on CoA, or for voyage charters from the spot market.

extending your requirements
our facility


Credebt® (pronounced: credet) is a kind of business finance with a unique twist. Credebt® facilities are available to complement bank facilities.

Banks fund businesses with money solutions in the form of a loan against some valuable assets. They need some guarantee to ensure the business will pay back the loan on time. The bank looks into the financial history of the business, the kind of cash flow it has, and its balance sheet.

Things are a bit different in the case of Trade Credebt®. Here we make use of contracts and purchase transactions to learn about cash flow. Instead of focusing on things that a bank does, Trade Credebt® prefers to look into the current and future plans of the business and the depth of experience and knowledge they possess.

We're business people, just like you. Your success is our success.


What Credebt® offers itself makes it better than banks. They shine to lend money to businesses where banks fail. We are one of the popular trade finance companies in the market offering excellent money lending solutions in trade finance.
