All export Letters of Credit (LC) are authenticated before advising the exporter to give you that peace of mind to concentrate on your export manufacturing.

Now, you no longer need to wait for the hard copy LC to start preparing your trade documents. With e-LC, a softcopy of your inward Letter of Credit will be sent directly to your nominated e-mail address. It is encrypted and password protected so you can be assured that the e-mail sent to you is secured.
