Global Trade Compliance Software is Critical for Compliance   

Global trade compliance is critical to overall supply chain performance. Companies must support a plethora of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and complex Preferential Trade Programs, respond to increased Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Requests for Information, while keeping up with changes to country- and industry-specific regulations, and frequently-updated sanctioned party lists. Accurate and efficient worldwide product classifications and screening of business partners and transactions for restricted or sanctioned parties are fundamental building blocks of successful global trade compliance programs.
