As a result of multiple years of trade disruption and geopolitical tensions, companies are recalibrating, refocusing and re-establishing their interest in their global trade function’s organizational design.

Global trade professionals have navigated higher customs duty costs, increased complexity from the ever-changing regulatory environment, and a need for increased operational efficiencies to help reduce supply chain delays. This webcast will share the benchmarking results of peer global trade professionals on how they are organizing their global trade functions to be more efficient, reduce customs duty costs and effectively manage risks, also taking into consideration technology advancements. Some of the questions that will be explored include:

  • What should be the scope of the global trade function?
  • Where should global trade sit within the company – Tax, Legal, Finance, Supply Chain?
  • Should operational activities be separated from compliance activities?
  • How can the global trade function contribute to the company’s overall operational efficiency?
