Leader in International Trade Document Solutions Reports Record 2014 Results

AUSTIN, TX (March 4, 2015) – Trade Technologies, the global leader for international trade document solutions, announced today that 2014 was the best year in its history. In 2014, Trade Technologies processed over $9.3 billion of international trade transactions – completing over 32,000 transactions (up 14% from 2013) and achieving record revenues. In total, Trade Technologies has completed over 200,000 international trade transactions with a value of over $60 billion since its founding in 1999.

For 2014, Trade Technologies completed over 13,000 fully electronic presentations of original letter of credit documents to major trade banks.
