Supply chain finance is a vehicle for removing cost from the supply chain for both buyers and sellers.
With a supply chain financing plan in place, a supplier ships goods and invoices the buyer. The buyer submits approved invoices to the bank, which pays the supplier quickly at a small discount. The buyer then repays the bank over a set period of time. In effect: Suppliers get paid earlier than they normally would and buyers can hang onto their cash for a longer time, which allows both to put their cash to work more efficiently.
