ABN Amro, Standard Chartered, ING and around 50 other banks and companies have participated in tests of a trade finance application called Voltron.

While the existing process is paper-based and time-consuming, Voltron processes transactions in “under 24 hours” as compared to the 5-10 days it traditionally takes, R3 said.
