Main Aim: Recover Goods as Quickly as Possible, in Accordance with the Order Placed
To do so, it is important to reduce as much as possible the time to open the documentary credit and the delay to receive documents. Real-time monitoring and the presence of personalised indicators and dashboards allow you to measure the financial stakes, identify the weak points and thus come up with plans of action based on qualitative and quantitative objectives.
