Global Sourcing Planning

The Trade Compliance department of a company is often asked for its opinion on where the company should source its products or conduct key overseas operations such as distribution or repairs based on trade compliance considerations. 

Global Trade Expertise can assist the Trade Compliance personnel in a company to provide more than just a landed cost calculation in response to such an inquiry. Global Trade Expertise can provide an analysis of the following key factors: availability of free trade programs, trade security programs, ease of doing business (transparency, local vs. national control of customs authorities, bureaucracy, culture), and choosing local parters (based on trade compliance history, reputation, communication), etc.
