Digital bank, TuningBill, partners with DP World to provide comprehensive banking services to global traders
DP World, the leading global logistics company and provider of smart supply chain solutions, today announced a partnership between CARGOES Finance By DP World and TuningBill, the business-to-business neobank.
CARGOES Finance By DP World is a fintech platform that brings together global importers, exporters and logistics companies in need of financing from around the world with financial institutions. CARGOES Finance provides lenders with access to data on cargo movements, enabling them to lend with confidence.
DP World customers will gain access to TuningBill services through the CARGOES Finance platform. These include flexible and fast loan services, both secured and unsecured, as well as non-lending services such as warehousing and fulfilment, foreign exchange and remittances.
TuningBill serves importers, exporters and ecommerce traders that can face shortfalls in funding from other banks. TuningBill can open bank accounts for its customers in multiple currencies, helping those customers who deal with multiple currencies when executing cross-border trades. The partnership follows TuningBill’s recent announcement that it has raised $22 million investment from Fasanara Capital.
