Cash Supply Chain

The Importance of Cash

85% of all global transactions are made with cash. Its existence enables participation in the global economy – for individuals, businesses and nations. To allow this to happen, currency needs to be unquestionably authentic, easily available and cost effectively distributed.

This means governments and central banks require:

  • Surety over the authenticity and lifetime of banknotes
  • Control over the production, circulation, management and destruction of banknotes
  • An in-depth understanding of how cash moves around their economy
