The import and export of goods across country borders and custom free zones are often represented by countries as free flowing and with the lack of trade barriers. However, the need for a country to protect its own industries, its markets and its jobs leads each country to implement its own tariff schedules, controls, rules and forms in its own language which complicate the business of cross border trade.
Automation of the process of cross border trade will help reduce the complexity and ensure that your company will stay compliant with all country regulations while moving goods. This session will highlight the challenges, the best practices in automated trade management; and where automation can bring the highest value to your business.
