Using Import and Export Trade Data to Deliver Business Intelligence

Decision makers need to reveal patterns from import and export trade data to discover the macro and micro trends of global trade. With the right information on hand, market leaders have a substantial advantage, and are better able to identify new business opportunities, locate new sources of supply and minimize risk.

Finding actionable insight has traditionally been challenging since there is not enough trade data available, the information is not in the right format or is simply outdated. Descartes Datamyne™ solves these traditional challenges with actionable business intelligence.
