A package of value added services

With more than 120 years of experience from international trading, we understand what it takes to become a trusted partner that creates value for customers and suppliers. On the basis of this experience, we have developed a comprehensive package of services, notably within shipping, financing and risk management. These services continuously add value to our customers’ businesses and to our own.

Shipping

Efficient logistics solutions

Our diversified product range and large global shipping volumes enable us to design cost-effective, punctual and climate-smart logistics solutions. We can, for instance, combine shipment of pulp, paper and timber in one and the same vessel.
The centrally located Shipping Department has overall responsibility for freight contracts within the Elof Hansson Group. Thanks to the logistics combinations and large volumes involved, we can negotiate advantageous freight agreements for the benefit of customers and suppliers.

Financing

A professional finance partner

Elof Hansson’s financial strength enables us to finance business deals and take the entire credit risk. Which means that suppliers do not need to tie up their own capital in receivables, minimizing their credit risk, while buyers obtain better payment conditions. Our capital is devoted to financing business projects.

Facilitating business opportunities

The Group’s sound reputation among banks, credit institutions and industrial development agencies all over the world creates a solid base for activities in all our business areas. The well-developed network of contacts in the global banking system results in faster cash flow and more business opportunities for our suppliers and customers.

Trade Finance and Risk management

Safeguarding every business transaction

Undertaking business with new partners in unknown markets can often feel more risky than collaboration with old relations. Elof Hansson conducts trade in more than 100 countries worldwide and our risk management experts have long experience from handling and minimizing credit and commercial risks as well as political ones.

One example is our vast experience from emerging markets, where long credit periods for customers are an essential competitive tool, while payment terms to suppliers are often short. Over the years, we have developed well succesful solutions to these conflicting demands.
