An exporter needs funds to procure raw materials and produce finished goods before sending shipment cross border. Packing credit facilitates the funding necessities of an exporter to manufacture the goods for the shipment.
One can avail export finance to meet varying working capital needs like the purchase of raw material, processing, manufacturing, warehousing, transportation or packing of items required for shipping.
This type of loan is available at competitive interest rates to ensure exporters can avail the necessary funds to complete orders. Export packing credit reduces the chances of missing out on available trade opportunities and helps a business grow meet larger demands with credit being available. This is essential from the working capital perspective as the buyers are often reluctant to make advance payments to the exporters.
Get attractive features accompanying an export credit and repay with ease over a suitable tenor.

Enjoy flexibility in credit terms as per customised export orders. Avail a packing credit loan for a suitable period depending on the payment terms to finance the interim exporting needs.
Avail finances immediately after providing documents like a letter of credit or export order to initiate manufacturing or procure items to be exported.
Packing credit interest rates are comparatively more affordable than on most other standard loans to help businesses manage their finances better.
Borrowers can opt to repay the loan availed via packing credit facility on receipt of export proceeds. The repayment tenor thus depends on the manufacturing or trade cycle, or individual requirements of a specific export. The tenor usually extends up to 180 days.
An option to repay from export proceeds also subjects the loan to conversion as a post-shipment liability from pre-shipment one. So, the exporter is not required to repay the credit before the shipment, instead make payment after the goods are shipped.
Both merchants involved in export, as well as businesspersons manufacturing goods for the purpose of export, can avail the packing credit advances.
Exporters can opt for a suitable advance from available types of packing credit, i.e., in INR as well as in foreign currency.
To avail an export packing credit, a business must have –
An Import Export Code (IEC) issued by the regional office of DGFT (Director General of Foreign Trade.)
A confirmed export order or a letter of credit.
Also, the exporter should deal with items listed under freely exportable goods. If the items to be exported fall under the negative list, he/she must acquire a license to export such goods.
