MUFG – Your trusted partner for Transaction Banking
The Real Deal – A showcase of successful client collaborations
A leading Australian cement manufacturer has a large distribution network domestically with an extensive supplier network in Asia. MUFG’s supply chain finance program helped the company fulfil its working capital targets and improve supplier relations.
Leveraging MUFG’s strong Asian footprint and in-country expertise, we were able to efficiently on-board suppliers across the region. This entails facilitating local language translations and supplier interactions. We also adapted and integrated our technology platform with the client’s so that invoices can be sent digitally to us for processing, and we can deal directly with suppliers for invoice discounting.
