Is your company exploring how to speed up your international supply chain, reduce border clearance issues, gain visibility into your global import data, lower your customs brokerage fees and manage your trade compliance risk?  If so, you may benefit from this discussion.

KPMG’s Trade & Customs practice, including a team of Global Trade Management Solution (GTMS) implementation professionals, has extensive knowledge gained from helping some of the world’s largest companies strengthen and automate their import processes.  

As all companies are different in operation, competitive environment, and culture, this webcast will provide you with a baseline of knowledge that you can apply in understanding how broker connectivity could benefit your company, helping you build a strong business case. You will gain the following from this webcast:

  • Learn basics of broker filing and its role in the supply chain
  • Appreciate the potential benefits of broker connectivity within a GTMS
  • Observe how to automate broker connectivity using a GTMS

This webcast will be of greatest interest to trade and technology managers and executives who are considering ways to increase supply chain efficiency, reduce risk and explore costs savings opportunities.  It will provide important insights regardless of your current or future GTMS. There will be additional benefit for those companies using or considering the use of SAP Global Trade Services (GTS), as we’ll demonstrate via GTS how connectivity functions.
