The nature of global trade makes it nearly impossible to manage imports manually, even for smaller and mid-size companies. Amber Road's global trade management solution automates import activities and provides critical information for decision-makers, including the data needed to measure key performance indicators.
Amber Road's solutions allows importers to adopt best-practice trade processes on a global level, have a centralized view of import compliance, and manage a diverse product portfolio.
By analyzing a purchase order and associated product information, our import solutions perform vital compliance, import control, and business rules validations for each line item. A supplier portal facilitates communication between parties throughout the entire purchase order and shipment process. Following the creation of a shipment transaction, the application gleans information from available sources and consolidates it into a pre-Customs entry for efficient transmission to the broker. The broker can then submit this "broker packet" to Customs without introducing errors through rekeying data elements. This ensures there are no surprises and no missing information when the shipment reaches Customs - dramatically reducing cycle times.
