Shifl, a digital freight-forwarding platform, announced the release of Shifl.Capital, a FinTech solution that streamlines finances and operations for supply chain companies.
This new solution allows BCOs (Beneficial Cargo Owners), carriers, forwarders, brokers, terminals, truckers, warehouses and other stakeholders in the supply chain ecosystem to initiate and accept instant and free digital payments. This solution allows these businesses to enact fast, secure financial transactions, resulting in smoother shipment flows, eliminating delays that have contributed to the current supply chain crisis.
“At a time when the broader industry is looking for a real overhaul, we realized that we’re able to accelerate payments within the industry with our already-developed products that will help everyone do business in a highly efficient and modern way,” says Shabsie Levy, CEO and founder of Shifl.
To counter these problems, Shifl is now offering a no-fee, instant payment and cargo visibility solution through its supply chain management platform. Shifl.Capital features “ShiflPay” which offers various free payment options such as:
Instant payments between all participants on that platform
Instant container releases with participating industry providers
Same-day payments to non-participating major industry providers
Two-day payment option to any party outside the platform
“The supply chain revolves around the movement of funds,” said Levy. “With the traditional payment process, it can take days to get funds transferred from one party to another, with some instances involving transfers between multiple parties before final release.”
Shifl.Capital is currently in beta and is being rolled out gradually.
Shifl is bringing the freight-forwarding industry into the future with technology and innovation that brings a huge array of real-life benefits to its customers. If you are an importer looking to bring your business into today’s digital age, be more in control of your shipping processes, and pay less — Shifl is for you. Shifl is headquartered in New York and maintains offices in China, India, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Georgia and the Philippines.
