It helps importers manage their money because exporting or removing goods from warehouse for consumption requires a duty. So, importers can wait an increase in demand usually equals an increase in revenue.
Storage of goods for the long term is also good for exporters. They have time to find purchasers and they can manage their finances with sufficient time.
