SBL Couriers: Cash flow management in the logistics space

SBL Couriers: Cash flow management in the logistics space

Company Overview

SBL Couriers, a pioneering logistics company founded in 2012, is committed to operational excellence. Guided by a vision of seamless logistics solutions, SBL Couriers has become a market leader through its strategies and customer-centric approach. By prioritising timely delivery and superior customer experiences, they strive to provide seamless and efficient solutions to their clients.

The Challenge: Cash Flow Management 

In recent times, SBL Couriers has faced financial challenges exacerbated by the rising cost of fuel. Their energy bills have skyrocketed by 100%, straining their available capital and preventing them from taking on more contracts, thereby limiting their revenue potential. SBL’s clients often pay monthly, but SBL Couriers pays its delivery contractors weekly, resulting in further cash flow hurdles. This posed a significant challenge for SBL Couriers, prompting them to seek new financing solutions to pay their suppliers on time as well as to expand their fleet.

Our Solution: Lenkie's Credit Facility 

When SBL Couriers approached traditional banks to fuel their business expansion, they encountered numerous obstacles and struggled to secure the much-needed funding. However, through a simple 2 minute application process and a decision within 24 hours, SBL Couriers was able to quickly secure funding through Lenkie. By leveraging Lenkie's credit facility, SBL Couriers is now able to spread repayments over 3, 6, or 9 months.
