Special Projects – New Zealand/Korea/China/USA

Client

A clothing manufacturer that regularly sold its products to Costco.

Issue

The client received a very large order for leather jackets but lacked the credit to have the goods produced.

Solutions

Express Trade Capital issued letters of credit that provided the secure funds our client’s suppliers demanded. Using our logistics capabilities, we oversaw the purchase of raw hides from New Zealand, which we transported to South Korea for tanning. We then had the tanned hides shipped from South Korea to China for manufacturing into leather jackets. Using our highly skilled quality control and shipping agents around the world we were able to ensure top quality at a low cost, and ultimately the timely shipment of our client’s goods into the United States for sale.
