Export Pre-Shipment Financing

Improve your working capital with pre-shipment financing

Access working capital financing for the purchase of raw materials and shipping if you receive Export Documentary Credit as part of doing business. DBS helps facilitate trade by providing pre-shipment financing under our Export Pre-Shipment Financing in the form of a bridging finance. The proceeds from the Export Documentary Credit are then used to pay off the financing.
