APTF offers a range of services including cross-border purchase order financing, sellers cross-border receivables financing, insurance procurement, placement, and collections. What makes our service unique is our ability to manage the supply chain with our logistics partners at the manufacturing level to the end customer. Our logistics-intensive approach helps mitigate the risks associated with cross-border trade and ensures that goods are delivered safely and efficiently to their intended destination.

APTF’s services are designed for SMEs looking for funding to purchase goods from international suppliers, who would normally be rejected by larger institutions. Our services are also designed for qualified debtors and factoring companies. Our approach helps reduce the barriers of entry for SMEs in the initial purchase order funding stages; thus, allowing SME’s to succeed in the global marketplace and while on the end of the spectrum expanding the reach of factoring companies as well.

APTF performs on-site supplier inspections to validate the supplier’s production capacity and expertise in producing the subject products. This helps to ensure that the goods delivered will meet the required specifications and standards. Additionally, our team has years of experience in logistics, which enables us to take control and custody of the physical goods from the door of the supplier to the door of the debtor. By taking this level of control, we substantially reduce the risk of fraud, non-conformity, missed delivery, and non-payment.

APTF’s logistics-intensive approach sets us apart from other trade finance solutions. Our focus on logistics allows us to have a more holistic analysis of the transaction and to take control and custody of the physical goods, reducing the risks associated with cross-border trade. Additionally, our expertise in trade finance allows us to offer SMEs the funding resources they need to purchase goods from international suppliers, while also mitigating the risks associated with cross-border trade.
