Speed matters, ‘just-in-time’ service facilitates business growth

Speed matters, ‘just-in-time’ service facilitates business growth

Thanks to Hong Kong’s position as the world’s top trading hub, GBA offers a unique seedbed for the development of trade. Faster connectivity between jurisdictions within the GBA is thus essential for trading companies to fully capitalise on the strength of the area to enhance their global competitiveness. A GBA-based electronic manufacturer has benefitted in a big way from this solution.

Three to four days a month, the company needs to exchange RMB or MOP for USD to purchase raw materials from its Hong Kong-based supplier. However, global commodity prices went through some wild swings in recent years and exchange rates were volatile. If the company fails to pay its supplier in USD on time, the cost of raw materials would be dramatically different. So it is critical for the company to lock in the best exchange rate and pay its supplier on time in order to secure continued business growth.

One of the highlights of the solution is that funds can arrive at the beneficiary bank in 2 minutes the soonest after the payment instruction is issued. With this solution, the company has come to realise how ‘fast’ cross-border payments can be and, as a result, how much easier it is to manage its business now. "It can help us locking in the import cost and the currency exchange rate and enable same-day cross-border payments. It has delivered real operational efficiency gains and financial cost savings for us." says the company owner.
