Letters of Credit 101: Beginner

September 8 2017, 01:00 PM GMT
Trade Technologies’ Chip Thomas, will present an informative webinar about LC basics and how they can be used to accelerate cash flow and streamline trade.

Attendees will learn about credit risk, the nuts and bolts of the LC process, and how to avoid discrepancies. Let us show you some of the basic issues that either makes LCs an effective payment mechanism or a major headache and how you can avoid the latter.
