March 14, 2012

Today, the benefits of sourcing from low-cost countries and selling into new foreign markets are driving the vast majority of enterprise-class companies to go global.

Key takeaways include:

  • How to reduce expedited shipments with better planning and supply chain visibility

  • How to avoid detention and demurrage fines

  • How to communicate efficiently with trading partners
