SAP Global Trade Services


How do organisations manage trade regulations, with differing global customs processes and the import and exports of goods around the globe using SAP Global Trade Services?

Organisations who trade globally have to juggle the import and export processes of their goods across dozens of different customs, compliance processes and a range of duties. This is made much harder when the cross-border supply processes are managed manually or through brokers and master data is incomplete. SAP GTS helps automate cross-border supply chain by automating and streamlining the trade processes. This allows organisations to control costs, ensure tariff and duty payments are accurate and reduce the risk of fines and penalties whilst clearing customs much faster.

Why SAP Global Trade Services?

Because SAP is the leading supplier of Global Trade Management software worldwide.
