    3/9/2018

    The global supply chain is comprised of a set of complex business processes involving many players spread all over the world. An effective Global Trade Management (GTM) digital platform must be able to handle these diverse functions and be able to integrate well with both systems and people. A digital supply chain is an enabler of value. It will enable you to manage global risk; improve agility, speed and quality; and reduce costs in many areas of your operation. IDC predicts that, by 2020, digitally-mature companies will achieve $430 billion in productivity gains over their less-connected peers.

    Retail buyers and merchandisers are continuously tasked with sourcing new merchandise and comparing to existing products to ensure their product lines remain competitive in the marketplace. With multiple seasons and programs to support, it is challenging to identify new supply sources, review new products with existing suppliers, negotiate contracts and confirm timely supplier production runs.

  3. Risk & Quality Management

    Global supply chain risks result from a variety of factors including inadequate or poor product quality testing and supplier management programs. The volatile socio-economic climate coupled with the constantly changing regulatory demands from governments at all levels has created an environment where strong risk mitigation practices are not only a competitive advantage, but a critical lifeline for brand survival. Brand manufacturers and retailers must take measures to help ensure accountability and full supply chain transparency.

    To stay ahead of the competition, brands need to deliver products that are new and fresh, while at the same time ensure they meet consumer demands, flex with production shifts, and navigate a myriad of sourcing challenges including quality and regulatory requirements. Maintaining current and accurate product specification and costing data is a difficult task, especially for global brands and retailers in industries where the products and styles change frequently.

    As companies look to foreign markets as a means to grow top line revenues, exports have boomed. Unfortunately, with more customers spread across more geographies, the export compliance challenge has mushroomed, and so has the risk of regulatory violations. Many exporters struggle to effectively screen potential customers against restricted party lists, determine license requirements, perform export compliance checks, and generate international trade documents.

    The appeal of sourcing low cost goods from foreign markets and balancing supplier risk has bolstered imports around the world. Along with these advantages, however, come a host of challenges.

  9. Duty Management

    Minimizing duties is one of the fastest and easiest ways to squeeze significant financial returns out of a company’s global supply chain. A dollar, yen, pound, or euro saved in duties goes straight to a company’s bottom line, which is what makes these programs so appealing. Duty minimization opportunities come in many forms, including preferential trade agreements, foreign trade zones and duty drawback. In order to take advantage of them, organizations must first determine eligibility. After determining eligibility, organizations must establish the appropriate procedures and documentation to qualify for them. Finally, organizations must track and administer the programs on an ongoing basis, for every qualifying product shipped.
