Managing Global Trade Flows
In global trade, the flow of information must support the tracking and management of the goods to enable the secure and compliant entry and exit to and from countries for the correct funds to flow to eligible business and trading partners.

TARIFFS: risks. Where imports attract tariffs or duties, items purchased from overseas may turn out to be more expensive if, for example, the wrong tariff code is applied. Importers can pay more than necessary if the paperwork omits mention of any one of dozens of preferential programs under which tariffs are cut, or waived altogether, owing to a slew of free trade agreements. Moreover, even more expensively, tariffs for some goods vary throughout the year, as low-tariff special quotas expire, with the end

TARIFFS: account for factors like tariffs and duties, country-to-country preferences, and anti-dumping laws, with the danger of incurring hidden costs at every step. If that is not complex enough, the events of September 11, 2001 have increased the scrutiny countries place on global trade, which also impacts costs adversely. According to the Brookings Institution , the cost of slowing the delivery of imported goods by just one day because of additional security checks may amount to $7 billion (USD) per year.

TARIFFS: trade, the reduction of tariffs, the elimination of quotas, the continued rise in China as an industrial force, and the rise of outsourcing as a cost reduction opportunity, all create an environment that is full of opportunity and fraught with hazards. The ability to effectively manage global commerce will be a key strategic competitive differentiator. Global commerce management (GCM) is what is required by companies to win in this tougher, more competitive environment. Creating Value From Global

International Trade Logistics Challenge Automated Global E-Trading
The Internet has enabled a networked world, a communication infrastructure, and emerging enterprise applications, which have opened the door for international trade in earnest. But not many applications really offer multi-enterprise services and software to automate the transportation and Internet-based logistics management needs of a global trading network.

TARIFFS: internationally, including customs management, tariffs, transportation, cost of goods, etc.), although there have been a number of Internet-based logistics tools that are helping companies analyze and reduce costs by automating the processes of booking shipments, keeping customers informed, and making sure goods arrive on time. On top of all this, the dreadful terror attacks of fateful 9/11 made it excruciatingly clear that companies that manage international supply chains confront additional risks.

Who’s Who? Sorting Out the e-Logistics PlayersPart 1: The Situation

form of increases in tariffs and duties. But, and here is the key, all this is CHANGE, and the more CHANGES you have, the more companies are going to need what we offer, i.e., a rule-based system that is dynamic and capable of coping with change.  If we see this type of scenario unfolding, we would do good to reach out to our installed base and help them deal with it. So far as the “green” side goes, I am not so optimistic.  When it comes to jobs vs. trees, green is going to be harder to sell.

Unifying Global Trade Management: Challenges and User Recommendations

TARIFFS: database of trade regulations, tariffs, and duties from more than twenty-five countries, heads-off potential problems at border-crossing by letting user companies correct inaccuracies in shipping documents before goods reach the border. The system also lets companies track shipments by multiple reference numbers in a single lead of cargo, providing much greater visibility into shipment status. This visibility into individual shipments (via pre-inspection of purchase orders) also makes it possible for the

Finding Opportunity in Rising Fuel Costs: Strategies for Industrial Equipment Companies
Finding Opportunity in Rising Fuel Costs: Strategies for Industrial Equipment Companies. Maximize your profits when fuel costs increase. The rising price of fuel has set in motion a series of more profound changes for both consumers and industry. But those companies that take comfort from the recent easing of fuel prices and whose management actions go no further than attempts to mitigate the immediate impact of fuel price increases will end up at a serious disadvantage in the market. Find out how your company can find opportunity in changing fuel markets.

TARIFFS: same way as import tariffs. They can act as a brake on globalization-especially if the long-term trend is for continuing fuel price increases. Some experts suggest that current fuel prices equate to an import tariff on Asian goods of around 9-10 percent. In some cases, outsourcing and off-shoring decisions have been reversed and some production jobs have been repatriated.

International Trade or ITL Adoption
Globalization of the Supply Chain means adoption of ITL is not an option.

TARIFFS: receipt. Customs duties and tariffs, as well as associated rates of exchange and transportation costs should be available to accurately calculate total cost of goods. This requires a data model and integration at the product and item level between the ITL system and the order management, warehouse management, and transportation systems. Much rides on the selection of an ITL system, so all of these issues and requirements should be taken into account. The importance of ITL systems will only continue to inc
