Monday, August 24 | Global trade: Gaining control over your trade function in a volatile environment (1 pm ET)

Trade is too large, too complex and, in today's climate, too costly to be left to chance. For most businesses, increasing compliance risks, skyrocketing costs and the fluid regulatory environment are creating a severe drain on internal resources and budget.

Trade's influence is felt broadly across major business functions — from supply chain, tax and procurement — all the way to the board room. Daily transactional work and regulatory developments are stretching trade resources thin, leaving less time to focus on strategic priorities.

Join us for a panel discussion on how technology and appropriate use of services can help you gain more control over trade operations. Learn how market-leading organizations are using this strategy to free up key trade resources so they can focus on what matters most — value creation and strategic priorities. Our discussion will focus on:

  • The perfect storm — regulatory change, continued trade disruption and the impact of COVID-19
  • The future of trade is digital — the importance of technology
  • Doing more with less — using additional services to augment your trade compliance activities
  • The crystal ball — how might trade be impacted in the coming months

This webcast will be of interest to all companies and executives with supply chains moving goods around the world, particularly professionals from global trade, customs, tax, finance, legal and supply chain.
