As a result, KRATOS platform delivers better transparency, higher efficiency, and less complexity than any other existing system. The use of this platform would result in more timely deliveries and lower cost.
The physical commodity trading process lacks transparency in terms of origin, quality and quantity of the ordered commodities as well as the shipment details. Hence, buyers cannot entirely trust their trading partners and end up involving mediators such as brokers, private investigators, and arbitrators etc.
Transactions may include a significant amount of manual administration due to discrepancies in documentation. Manual documentation is both time-consuming and prone to errors. Hence, manual documentation not only leads to a few weeks worth of delay of but also results in increased costs.
Physical commodities require crucial quality assurance. But worldwide locations where most goods are commonly manufactured have very lenient supervision and security. Even documents can be easily altered. Given the lack of transparency in the system, quality assurance remains questionable in commodities trading.
Given the current market situation, SME’s face challenges when seeking assistance from Financial institutions in obtaining proper funding for commodity trading. Despite having met the stringent economic requirements for trade finance and the due diligence check, SMEs are significantly less likely to receive funding of the same caliber as larger players because of the limited visibility and insufficient evaluation from potential financiers.
