Trade Technologies Opens Singapore Office
Global Leader in Trade Document Solutions Expand Reach to Key Multi-National Export Market
Austin, TX (March 25, 2013) – Trade Technologies, the global leader in international trade document solutions, announced today the opening of their new office in Singapore. Singapore is Trade Technologies’ second office in Asia and its thirteenth office worldwide.
Trade Technologies’ web-based platform and outsourced services provide exporters with accelerated receipt of international payments under letters of credit and other complex trade payment mechanisms. Trade Technologies’ patented Global Trade Management Platform automates the creation and electronic delivery of UCP 600 compliant letter of credit documents to the world’s largest global trade banks, eliminating discrepancies, lowering transaction costs and enhancing reporting for exporters.
“Singapore is an enormously important hub for our multinational export customers and international trade bank partners. Many of our existing 1200 customers already have their global treasury centers in Singapore. This concentration along with new customers recently added in 2012 in the chemicals, technologies and oilfield services industries made Singapore a perfect fit for Trade Technologies’ next office,” said Kirk Lundburg, President and CEO of Trade Technologies. “We have been in Hong Kong for almost 10 years and it is our largest operations office. Singapore is a natural extension of that solid base.”
Trade Technologies’ Operations office in Singapore will be managed by Caleb Chan, Director of Operations – Asia Pacific. Caleb is based in Hong Kong and has managed Trade Technologies’ operations in Asia since their opening in 2005.
Trade Technologies has offices in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Hong Kong, Houston, Istanbul, London,
Los Angeles, Mumbai, New York, San Francisco and Singapore.
