UPS Capital Cargo Finance®
Now you can turn your in-transit inventory into working capital.
If your business relies on importing goods, you know how much stress the extended cash-conversion cycle can put on your ability to grow. Your overseas suppliers can demand a large deposit or 100% prepayment before shipping the goods. But it may take 45 days to receive and sell your goods, then another 30–60 days to collect from customers. Your cash can be untouchable for 75+ days, which makes it hard to buy new inventory to fulfill new orders. It’s a vicious cycle.
The best-kept secret in alternative financing
One of your company’s biggest assets — and one you may overlook — is your in-transit inventory. Wouldn't it be great if you could turn that inventory into working capital? With UPS Capital Cargo Finance®, you can.
Here’s how it works: Upon approval, we’ll lend against the commercial invoice amount of your in-transit or overseas inventory, with no collateral required. Pricing and contract terms are simple and reasonable. And payment terms match up ideally to enhance your cash conversion cycle. You have the working capital to buy more inventory, fulfill more orders and create a healthier company capital structure. Try getting that from a traditional bank or lender.

- Credit lines from $300,000–$1.5 million
