STEERING THE WAY FORWARD FOR THE TRANSPORT SECTOR
Financing a large fleet of vehicles involves negotiating different loan terms, repayment schedules and interest rates. Debt repayments need to match business cash flow and the payback period aligned with the asset’s useful life.
Balancing Risk in Asset-based Financing
With refinancing options, multiple fleet purchases and external factors such as volatility in the oil markets, it is no wonder that group treasuries in the transportation sector have their hands full managing the group’s risk exposure.
In such situations, CS Lucas’ treasury management solution helps consolidate the group’s risk exposure associated with large-scale asset-based financing. In-depth what-if analysis can be carried out and a consolidated picture can be painted of outstanding guarantees, contingent liabilities and other open facilities across the different companies of a group.
