Trade finance helps businesses to manage cashflow by providing short term funding to pay for goods with suppliers.
Typically a trade funding facility provides revolving credit that be can used over and over again to pay for goods with suppliers. This could be for importing goods into the UK or paying domestic UK suppliers.
Some lenders offer trade/import finance along side invoice finance but it can also be done on a stand alone basis.
