Download Press Release

LEGEND Group is excited to announce the launch of LEGEND Fintech and its maiden service –TRADEGO.

TradeGo is a trade finance service that reduces the inventory carrying cost, finance cost and time to secure finance for LEGEND Logistics’ customers. TradeGo is unique because it marks the completion of service scopes for a supply chain, with physical, informational, and financial flows under one roof. The TradeGo service will officially be available for shippers and consignees on 15th September 2022.

Supply chain disruption is always dangerous to 332.99 million small and mid-size (SME) global manufacturers and traders. LEGEND Logistics ships commodity raw materials from international suppliers to these SMEs, enabling them to produce in Asia for the world. In current log-jam uncertainty and increasing interest rate, the SMEs are experiencing more significant supply chain stress and escalating cost.

Being an integral partner of the SMEs operation flow, LEGEND Logistics has an intimate understanding of the demand & supply conditions, amassing years of operational data of the supply chain, and is in control of the physical commodity movements that generate such data. Therefore, the condition is ripped for the creation of TRADEGO with the establishment of LEGEND Fintech.

LEGEND Fintech established the bankability of the SME traders and consignees based on historical data, working closely with financiers to provide the much-needed trade finance to their consignments. The bankability established in TradeGo enables LEGEND Fintech’s customers to obtain trade finance fast, avoid the log-jam and continue building their creditworthiness.

“TradeGo is a much-needed product for SME traders, who are integral to the Asian economy survival after the pandemic and into the financial crisis.” said Dr Alex Lin, CEO of LEGEND Fintech. “With TradeGo, we’ll serve LEGEND Logistics’ current ecosystem and expand to more SMEs as we progress.”

I am extremely proud to be marking Legend Group’s 10th Anniversary this year.

As we celebrate this significant milestone, we reflect on how Legend has evolved over the past decade.

• Legend Tank has steadily grown its fleet of tank containers making us now one of the largest tank container operators in Asia.
• Operating on a hub-and-spoke mode, Legend Carrier offers breakbulk and marine logistics, dedicated liner and regional feeder services in emerging markets.
• To build up a strong track record and reputation in Specialised Logistics, we strategically established our Specialised Trucking business in Australia in 2018 and Yacht Transport division in USA in 2021.
• Overseas expansion has always been one of our top agenda as it’s critical to our growth. Today, we have expanded our footprints into four continents, operating in 12 countries with 15 regional offices and over 400 employees. Legend Global represents our Tank, Carrier and Specialised Logistics divisions and provides a broad range of value-added services that enable us to deliver a fully integrated logistics solution.

I am immensely proud of what we have achieved over the past ten years and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our dedicated employees, customers, investors and business partners for their support and trust in us. We would not have been able to reach this milestone without you.

Looking ahead, we will continue to explore new growth areas and invest in new capabilities and technologies to serve a broader clientele from various industries and ensure we remain at the forefront of the logistics industry.

I am confident that Legend will continue to build upon its success with a stronger commitment and a more sustainable and innovative approach in the years to come.
