A Documentary Letter of Credit (DLC) has become an important method for overseas customers to pay for vehicles and other goods.   A Documentary Letter of Credit is also, unfortunately, one of the most challenging ways to receive payments as the documentation requirements and procedures can be very complicated.

Techlantic’s business model has evolved to export facilitation and partnering with other exporters.  Our business focus now is to help our local Canadian and US customers thrive in the business of exporting by leveraging our knowledge and financial capabilities related to Documentary Letters of Credit.

Techlantic has grown as a trusted long term partner to many importers and exporters by focusing on customer service and adaptability.  The following suggested process is used most commonly as it ensures that no credit checks are required and everyone gets “Approved”!


Deliver the vehicle or other goods to our storage facility and Techlantic will pay you immediately for the goods, including local taxes, if applicable.


Instruct the end customer overseas to initiate a letter of credit, with Techlantic as Beneficiary, for the goods for any desired amount that meets the import requirements for the goods.  The balance, including Techlantic’s handling fee and shipping cost can be paid by wire transfer.


Techlantic will complete required documentation to receive payment by the Letter of Credit.
