Being competitive in today’s globalized business environment increasingly means turning to international supply chains. This in turn is putting greater pressure on organizations to be more proficient and compliant than ever before when it comes to their international trade activities. Getting things right the first time isn’t simply a desirable goal; these days it’s practically considered a mandatory obligation of traders by Customs authorities and other government regulators.
This is the general frame of reference from which we decided to recently launch a blog dealing generally with the issue of compliance as it relates to international trade. More than anything, we want to help raise awareness amongst the trade community about the vital importance of compliance, to engage in a discussion with those interested in the subject and to share the ideas and experiences of others striving to achieve compliance.
As a quick reference for you, in these first 60 days we have accomplished:
