Reported commonly from various sources, recovery of the shipping industry from global crisis back in 2008 had faced with numerous challenges. Shipowners during these periods undergo tremendous financial pressure, while many had gone bankrupt. On the other hand, suppliers had suffered and need to undertake higher commercial risk for survival. The extended credit term to over 120 days seems as an industry norm back then. With the introduction of "Marine Credits", it will address these challenges.
Mr Tiger Cai - Chief Operating Officer of Marine Online, also shares that both shipowners and suppliers save time and resources on administrative work and time. With "Marine Credits" shipowners no longer need to apply credit term from supplier individually. Besides, he also hopes the program will help to uplift the competitiveness within the industry.
Being the centralised credit facility for the global maritime industry, Marine Online assumes calculated risks. Chief Financial Officer – Mr Frank Xu shared that the organisation has proper risk control processes. On top of that, Marine Online also partnered with one of the top insurance company, ensuring a fail-safe mechanism in-place.
As shared with some reporters, Marine Online had launched "Marine Credits" as a pilot program three months ago. Many suppliers welcomed the program due to the guaranteed payment. While shipowners are pleased with the convenience "Marine Credits" brings.
