Company

Please give a brief history of the company and, if applicable, group structure.

ConsolFreight advances working capital finance to stakeholders involved in international trading of goods and services. For the trade finance transactions we are advancing capital to shippers and collecting from the buyers. When financing freight forwarding invoices we will advance funds to freight forwarders and collect from shippers. Our services expand from offering a trade finance marketplace to procurement of logistics services and digital contract management solutions. ConsolFreight’s Series 4 will be the first revolving pool following the successful launch of Series 1 and Series 2 that financed solely freight forwarding invoices and Series 3 which was a blended pool of cargo and freight forwarding invoices.
