Trade Technologies Surpasses $25 Billion in Transaction Value

Recovering Global Economy Accelerates Transaction Volume Growth 

July, 2010/AUSTIN, TX—Trade Technologies, the global leader in international document solutions, today announced that it since its founding, it had processed over $25 billion in international trade transactions on behalf of its global customers.

"The combination of continuing tight working capital and recovering global economies has accelerated the growth in our total transaction value throughout 2010.   Our services and technology help our customers accelerate payment for their export transactions by at least 15 days on billions of dollars each year," said Kirk Lundburg, CEO of Trade Technologies.   

Trade Technologies is changing international payment practices that, until recently, relied on the paper-heavy process that had changed little since the days of Marco Polo. The company's web-based Global Trade Management Platform and professional outsourced services lead the way in enabling exporters and freight forwarders to create accurate trade documents and to deliver original documents over the Internet to major international trade banks and buyers. This far more efficient process allows customers to streamline their operations, eliminate discrepancies, save money and accelerate payments.

Trade Technologies was founded in 1999.  Over 1000 exporters, global trade banks and freight forwarders rely on Trade Technologies' software and outsourced services to process over $7 billion dollars in international trade transactions each year.

Trade Technologies has offices in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Hong Kong, Houston, Istanbul, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, New York, San Francisco, and Singapore.
