Zürich, Switzerland – December 3, 2018

Arviem has been selected as the winner of the Innovation category of the 2018 Supply Chain Finance Awards in Amsterdam. Arviem’s innovative supply chain finance service is bringing the physical and financial supply chains together by controlling the flow of goods with internet of things technologies. On the basis of real-time, end-to-end supply chain visibility into the movement of goods through the supply chain, Arviem is offering an innovative inventory financing service. Arviem addresses the funding gap of clients; with the new inventory financing model, Arviem buys goods from the clients at the point of loading to a shipping container and sells it to distributors or to customers at the point of offloading. This approach ensures that clients receive early liquidity at attractive rates, as well as this method synchronizes the flow of finances with the actual progress of the goods through the supply chain.

“Being recognized by industry professionals gives our service development initiatives a significant boost as it shows that not only our clients see the value of our innovative service offering but also Supply Chain Finance professionals. We are thankful for the award nomination to our pilot customer, Rio Mints. Thanks to their trust in us, we are the recipients of this award this year” says Stefan Reidy, CEO of Arviem.
