A New Era For Trade Finance

Zemit is built on distributed ledger technology (DLT), the technology that is set to disrupt the way we transact.  In the future all international trade transactions will take place using DLT technology

How Zemit Works

Zemit’s financial marketplace platform creates a unique business opportunity via a proprietary P2B (Peer2Business) model, providing investors (individuals or institutions) the opportunity to facilitate short-term, low risk international trade transactions


Importers that require short term trade finance create a profile on Zemit and post details of their deal.


Investors either individuals or institutions browse deals which require funding. Using a depth of data on the company and deal, investors can either part or fully fund a project.


A smart contract in favor of the exporter providing them with assurance that funds are available and will be released in accordance with the contract of sale once conditions of the contract have been satisfied.


Importer repays loan with interest, their Zemit credit rating improves making them more attractive for future investment.  Investors are paid back at which points funds can be reinvested or withdrawn.



Goods delivered to importer.  Payment made by Zemit to exporter in accordance with the contract of sale.


Parties to the transport and handling of goods upload required documentation such as COI, packing lists, bill of lading. Documents stored in permissioned immutable distributed ledger.
