General Trade Services

Guaranteeing the quality and integrity of your international transactions

Business Challenge

In any transaction where goods are bought and sold, there is a transfer of ownership. This is made more complicated by the fact that the transaction is taking place across different countries. The various parties need guarantees from an independent third party to provide reassurance of the conformity of goods.
