Materials Financing

Inventory Financing

Optimising the level of working capital in your business.

Due to market conditions and other factors, companies will inevitably have periods where product sales are lower than expected. This can cause significant liquidity problems with excessive cash being tied up in materials or finished goods inventory.

Through the Exertis Supply Chain Services inventory financing programme, we will buy stock from your Approved Vendor List (AVL) or from our sources, maintain goods in our ownership until you require them, and deliver inventory to your specified locations Just-In-Time (JIT).

This results in lower stock holding, dramatically improves your inventory turns and delays your inventory ownership in the supply chain.

OUR INVENTORY FINANCING SERVICES INCLUDE:

VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY (VMI)
While in transit or in storage, you can delay taking ownership of stock until the point of consumption, through our unique VMI service. This optimises your level of capital and frees up cash flow for value adding activities.

PROCUREMENT
We will purchase your required stock directly from the selected manufacturer on your behalf and maintain this in our ownership. We will insure inventory on your behalf while in transit and storage.

INVENTORY MANAGEMENT
Coordinating with your head office or regional units, we will manage purchased inventory, ensuring that you have the optimal level of raw materials, component parts and finished goods stocked at your required locations at all times.

INVOICING AND PAYMENT
We will arrange payment of all associated costs including suppliers, third party logistics providers (3PLs), freight forwarders, customs duties, clearance fees and sales taxes. You will receive a single invoice only on consumption of inventory.

With our inventory financing solution, we will finance your materials within the supply chain, meaning you preserve your cashflow until the point of materials consumption.
