Global trade is complex, with many inherent risks—and the expansion of global markets combined with ever-changing trade negotiations continues to add to its complexity. If your company has extensive import and export business processes, you’re constantly challenged to identify, interpret, and apply the multitude of rules and regulations that govern trade. SAP Global Trade Services (GTS) can help. The software significantly reduces the complexity of managing trade while simultaneously reducing risk and improving operational efficiency. Success with GTS implementation, however, requires a thorough understanding of GTS capabilities and a practical knowledge of translating rules and regulations into compliant procedures using GTS functionality.
