Global Trade Compliance Implementation

Overview:

Companies engage in international trade – import and export – to leverage the benefits to their supply chain and organization. Companies with international operations must comply with the trade laws of all countries in which they do business. Trade laws control the movement of goods from one country to another and must be identified with internal processes aligned to provide compliance.

Highly effective companies leverage trade compliance programs to support effective supply chain processes. For US imports, the result is efficient clearance, reduced time for new sourcing opportunities, and duty savings. For US exports, aligning processes with country destination requirements creates efficiencies. This reduces time to new markets, prevents holds ups and fines during customs clearance, and reduces enforcement action risks.

This case study provides an example of how LearningLens Regulatory and Trade Compliance specialists supported the development of an effective global trade compliance program.
