Purchasing organization One of our core competencies is purchasing commercial and industrial goods from all over the world.

Project and foreign trade financing We carry out extensive financing activities to realize projects and transactions. Entering new markets, working with foreign partners, and transporting large quantities of goods worldwide are risky for many companies.

These include: - Documentary letters of credit - Bank guarantees - Documentary collections - Export credit insurance The effectiveness of such applications depends on your precise and cost-efficient execution. We ensure this through our specifically trained and experienced staff. Contract Management For domestic and international transactions, we offer our clients flexibility in terms of payment and delivery terms. In doing so, we aim to secure our business relationships by continuously applying efficient contracts. Logistics A fundamental prerequisite for realizing the full value-added potential of foreign trade activities is establishing a functioning supply chain. We pay close attention to the efficient dovetailing of internal and external activities to ensure punctual deliveries. To organize global procurement activities flexibly and, above all, cost-effectively, we are able to bundle the capacities of differently positioned transport companies.
