Mind Map for Global Trade Management

Together with Amber Road, supplier of software for managing import, export, global logistics and trade agreement processes, Supply Chain Movement has created a mindmap for Global Trade Management to outline the route, including road signs indicating potential hazards along the way.

One goal of a global trade management solution is to ensure that orders and consignments are visible throughout the worldwide supply chain. But in addition, blacklists of companies and individuals must be permanently monitored.

As a further benefit, having the right product classifications, import- and export licences and utilising free trade agreements helps to prevent supply chain disruptions and to reduce costs.
